Has serious potential But is lacking severely in stability. I would love to see focus being put towards usability. Most of the time it feels like using an advanced cad/cam application instead of an intuitive map app. (Paid user here)
Keeps getting worse I'm a biologist and this was my favorite app for years. It's literally the only reason I don't have an iPhone. But the last three updates have made it unusable for me. First they made it onerous to put two waypoints near each other. Now it's apparently impossible to change the UTM of a waypoint. You enter the desired UTM and go to the map but the point doesn't move. Classic case of messing with a good thing until it no longer works. I hope they fix it, but I think there's an iPhone in my future. Bummed.
Simply the best of it kind I have used this app for years. For any kind of gps use aside from driving this gets fired up.
Ah! I see why I thought there was a problem with the compass, GPS has to be on for you to do the declination. Seems that that could to some extent be done taking position from something other than GPS... But in practical use... yeah... you'd have GPS on... I mean that is the point of this app. ... ... Probably need to keep stuff persistent between exiting and reopening this for some stuff. Specifically I have to keep setting the reference for my sea level pressure altitude. (Since I can get this data programmatically it is a bit awkward to _have_ to use the thumb-wheels to set this.) ... ... You still need to have red to port and green to starboard, instead of the other way around. ... ... Might I suggest simply swiping to switch between dashboard and compass and map rather than having to wipe in a picker-menu to then click on one of them. Probably would want to let the user choose what to wipe between. ( Oh, and having a pair of binoculars for accessing the camera doesn't really make a lot of sense...) ... ... Otherwise this is a pretty neat app!
Pretty good app, love the options available. Took me a while to find the dashboard and that is the best part. Love the dashboard and how customizable it is, can have the things that matter to me like heading, altitude, and coords. Still have some things to try out with this app, like setting waypoints though. Though this is more of a device feature than an app feature I love that my phone's GPS can work when airplane mode is on. Just wish I knew how to have some maps without an internet/data.
Learning Curve Take the time and get comfortable with using this .APK then you will understand why this is one of the more valuable free items you can use. From tracking to trekking to "where's my car" this little helper is truly essential.
