This is the most useful navigation app I've found by far and I wish I could give it more stars. I use it almost every time I go hiking, camping, mountain biking, or even trip planning. I've found lots cool places on here as well. There's so many map options, from latest snow depth/fall info, weather, lands, topography, trails... and then you can create and save trails as well. Cannot recommend enough

Best Map for Exploring I rely on this map for all my trail adventures. I've never had issues with tech disconnect ...I love being able to plan an adventure ahead of time but have the choice of spontaneous travels... When on trails...I don't use anything else... Google or paper maps... The only thing I don't like is the arrow doesn't follow along and you have to manually move the map as you travel. Can't live without this app!!

I used to be a paid member. They make it purposely difficult to export multiple items at once. Their "solution" is to put the items into a folder and export the folder, which would be fine, except you have to open each item individually in order to move it. This is actually more steps than exporting one by one. I think it's an attempt to keep you within their walled garden and I don't appreciate that approach. I would rate it five stars otherwise.

Hi, Sorry for the trouble. We are working on improving the file to folder experience in the mobile app. You can move multiple items to a folder on the website: Please contact Support if you have any issues:

What's new

- Optional setting to prevent map downloads on cellular networks

- Text scaling for large fonts in stats bar
- Waypoint label not scaling when map text is scaled
- Lookup Elevations feature causing time stats to be lost
