Gives me zero confidence to actually use it time and time again. If the website is actually working well enough to plan a trip, good luck getting it to sync to your device. I'm sick of this app and when I contacted the developer it was suggested that I purchase their other subscription app to plan my trips. Lol
Updated for the new version. I really like this update, but it is REALLY laggy on my older GS4 (probably not much the devs can do there). However this required membership for an app I already paid $20 for on Android and again for IOS seems a little expensive.... Edit: changed to 5 stars. Working my problem out with the devs.
The app took a long time just loading some piece of map even when I had excellent internet connection. Then it ran okay with a few bugs. When I tried downloading parts of map that became extremely none user friendly and in the end not functional at all. Today I don't know if I have a map downloaded or not... On top of all these problems the apps route tracking is none functional even though I got it to work twice before... So where do I send the logs to?
With the newest version I can't seem to delete way points directly from map. Have to find them in a list first. Very annoying.
Paired with a Bluetooth GPS (garmin glo), I've used this in the Backcountry skiing, mountaineering, and backpacking. Coupled with caltopo, I can upload trails and waypoints, or even unit boundaries such as in Denali. If you can ruggedize your phone, this app, with an external GPS reciever, is better than any GPS I've used.
(Edit for new version) This app is now my undisputed favorite. I feel really confident exploring the woods when I have it, but it also makes trip planning easy and fun! Maybe there are a few features that would make it even better (like easier organization and use of the folder system, which can be slightly clunky), but the app is 100% usable, very smooth, and the best option I've found. And they're constantly developing and improving it! I can't wait to see what's next! Thanks for a killer app!l
