When I am active tracking the app shuts down my phone. I tried reinstalling the app several times, upgraded to Android 13 and it still reboots the phone. Don't depend on it if you're in the backcountry. I did like some features but the icons that show up on your map are huge and don't scale down. A way to mass edit waypoints would be nice too. It is also difficult to edit a track name after it is finished. You hit edit it and it has no option to change the name?

Love the new update that puts actions and especially the current location shortcut at the bottom of the screen where it is more accessible. This app was great before, but the little UX nitpicks that would come up (like not being able to select current location with one hand every time I opened the app in a new place) were pretty annoying! This update is a significant improvement. Thanks!

Worked great until a couple of weeks ago. It now no longer keeps accurate mileage. All of the tracks started showing random spikes off the track that add to the mileage. Tonight it added an entire mile to my three mile walking route with these spikes. Nothing has changed about my phone or my location settings. Everything's open that needs to be. I uninstalled the app, restarted my phone, and reinstalled the app and the same problem occurs. Without accurate mileage this app is worthless.
