Latest version is full of bugs. Cannot trust the tracking feature anymore because it will always crash and ask if I want to restart the tracking. I choose yes, but as soon as I open another app (camera) and return, it crashes again. If I answer NO to restart, it restarts! Completely messed up! It shouldn't even crash! Today it took over 20min to obtain GPS signal. But if I opened Google Maps, my position was accurate and fluid. I'm seriously thinking on not renewing my subscription. Moving over.

One of the best features of prior app Viewranger was the ability to select a map area without creating a route, and downloading a large region - for those times when you stray from a pre-determined route. With Outdooractive the map download feature automatically zooms to the limits of your route - why?? So you're forced to artificially create a dummy route to expand map area. Again - why? Loss of flexibility and features is hard to understand, maybe I'm missing something. De-coupling maps from routes gave VR much more versatility and user-friendliness - maybe this can be looked at for future versions. Edit: thanks for the tip, Outdooractive, I stand corrected. Updating to 4 stars.

Hey Michael, in addition to individual routes, you can also save entire sections of the map offline. Simply select the desired area by moving the map to it and zooming in. Once you have made your selection, tap the 'download' symbol in the top right corner. You can also reach us at service@outdooractive.com. Many thanks, The Outdooractive team.

This is not a replacement for VR. In VR, I had a great screen where I could view riding parameters (speed, distance, time of day, etc.) in large clear contrasting letters (viewable in sunlight with sunglasses). Parameter screen was customizable. Gone with no replacement. I will be deleting this and looking for another suitable app. This is useless for my purposes.
