It seems nice until you need to use it. I have been trying to find instructions for this app and can't find any. It's so annoying. By trial and error and touching every button, I was finally able to do a route. It would be nice if there was a button for "start hike" or "start trip" but there isn't any and no you tube video either.

This app is a lifesaver for hiking in areas with no data. Really simple and easy to use to download offline maps. I didn't use it to track my hikes this past week in Glacier NP, I just used it to check and reference if I was still on a trail and where I was along it. Couldn't figure out how to change the scale to imperial units though, my only complaint but not a big issue for what I was using it for.

I love this app! It is easy to use with both online and offline maps. I do trail running and hiking and by overlaying the tracks on the maps, it actually helps me many times. It also help me to plan and get the idea of the area I'll visit. I highly recommend this app! You can use all of the features for free, but I just purchased it as a support and as a thank.
