I'm a former View Ranger user and am very disappointed by Outdooractive. This app isn't user-friendly and is missing several features.Offline maps aren't available (unless you're premium), and you can't follow friends and share routes with them. You can create groups, but can't share/plan routes with members – useless! Whenever I leave the app while navigating, recording/navigation stops and has to be restarted. No in-app notifications when added to group.

Works. Would be nice to see (popular) routes already drawn in on the map, without having to click on each individual entry. Would make comparing and choosing easier. Offline mode works but it clunky (you have to open the specific route that you downloaded in advance) - would be nice to just have offline access to a whole region.

Overall, a great app. I'd give it 5 stars if not these issues: 1. Sometimes, the app just stops on its own. Even if I'm tracking my route! I have to reopen it and restart the navigation. This makes the whole tracking functionality useless, since I end up with a lot of separate tracks recorded for my route. 2. The ads in the app don't have a fixed height. And when I open any page, ads load after the main content. This makes the content shift around, which this makes it very hard to read it.
