A common job that thru hikers do is measure elevation change over a given segment. For example, click spot 20 miles away, tells you how many feet/meters you will climb to there. Similarly for behind you. The app does not do this which disappoints me. Another nice to have would be able to submit a comment offline, having it upload automatically to the cloud when reception is reached. I believe this will increase user generated comments. Otherwise, extremely useful, and I would argue a must have app for any PCT thru hike. However, the gps functionality sometimes fails to work for no apparent reason. Only redownloading the app fixes the issue.
Main critique is the free demo portion works up to Laguna. The problem is there is no reception for phone or WiFi ANYWHERE in that town to purchase the full app so you are stranded for about 30 miles until Scissors Crossing. Recommend the demo work up to Scissors Crossing where most people can get reception and/or pop into Julian and get the full version. The app is great with reviewing the upcoming sections of trail. Elevation graphs, water, campsites big and small. It is one of the three big digital resources I juggle with for the PCT. Absolutely worth the price for a 5 month endeavor.
I keep trying to download the offline maps for the super pct package but it keeps saying connection to server lost. I've tried redownloading the app and just won't work..not sure what's happening. The one that did download works pretty good though.
Great up to date info on water sources, trail closures, tent sites, town info etc. Works without data and gps works 100% in the first 260 miles. After that... I'm about to find out.
What most people say. Very accurate. Basically all you need to do the dang thing. Makes it almost too easy frankly. ;)
I get they need to make money but honestly from what people say and actual trail experience. Doesn't help you if you have no cell service in the middle of nowhere. I'll stick to maps in paper format won't help you if your phone breaks or you have no way to charge it lol joke
