If you are happy to only have your data on your phone it's probably OK. But if you actually want to use it to make a map on your computer you have the upgrade to the pro version. Without that functionality it's absolutely useless. Devs should be up front about limitations on the free version so I don't waste my time on an app that "can" do what I need but doesn't.

Functional enough for my application (tree survey), but beware the extortion attempt when you try to retrieve your data. $30 is steep for an amateur one-off project, but I might have considered it if they'd been up front about it. Thankfully, we only did a small trial before committing.

Great app. Have had a couple small issues, mainly my misunderstanding on stuff. They helped me through the problems and it is working great. Export feature is great to import my shots into ArcMap!

What's new

FIX: Issue with Accuracy as HRMS reading. When connected to external GNSS this function was not working as expected.
FIX: Accuracy was always exported as HRMS when HRMS was available which was not expected behaviour.
FIX: Other minor bug fixes.
