Lots of possibilities. But the free version is very glitchy and lacks a lot of detail, like maybe dangerous dams on the Susquehanna that need to be portaged river left. And kayak campsites. Been using onX for my map planning for years. Paddle Ways has promise, but it's almost twice the price of onX and has shown enough value for me. At $20 a year I'd support, but not $50. Mods, message me if things change.

Thanks Charlie. You can also use PaddleWays absolutely free for as long as you like. There are certain premium features that you won't have access to, and you'll hit the paywall whenever you try to use one of those. But we have tons of great free content and tools too
