▲ Three Main Features of YAMAP
1) Safe
YAMAP makes your smartphone a special GPS device for the outdoors.
YAMAP could provide accurate positioning information with YAMAP's maps in Japan and your smartphone's GPS, even if you are in places not reached by mobile phone signals, such as in mountainous regions.

2) Convenience
YAMAP's maps are used as digital ones with your device, and as ones on paper by downloading them to your PC (or tablet PC).

3) Share
You can easily share your outdoor data with your family and friends through YAMAP. Finishing your outdoor and saving your data, you can uploads it to your online 'ACTIVITY REPORT' where you can view your route, outdoor data, and a comprehensive workout history.

▲ Wear
YAMAP also provides the Wear app.
Please check the following important points before you start using the Wear app.

- The Wear app can only use on CASIO Smart Outdoor Watch (WSD-F20, F21, F30) and is not available for other wear devices.
- The Wear app cannot be used standalone. When you start using the Wear app, you need pairing with the YAMAP Smartphone app that has already logged in.
- When you download a map, you need to open paired YAMAP Smartphone app. Please search a map and open map detail page then tap "Forward map to smartwatch" in option menu.

Please see the help center for detailed information such as pairing.

A fantastic app that I use alot for mapping and tracking my hikes. It really opens up opportunities when hiking because you can feel more confident in the routes you are taking. It has some clever light social features such as using bluetooth to alert you when you pass a user, I have met and connected to many people using this feature. Just found it doesn't support wear OS! Please add this support!

I had some misgivings about this app',at the beginning, the main reason being my poor knowledge of the Japanese language. Today I gave the app' a test try and it was awesome. After doing some research, I found it very easy to use. Since signing-up to this app' I have discovered many like-minded outdoor people and have connected with them. I have also used other's hikes to help plan a hike that I did. I am looking forward to a successful relationship with 'YAMAP'.

The worst hiking app I've ever used. Elevation calculation is woefully inaccurate, and it uses a lot of battery. The UI is clunky, unorganised, and unintuitive. And the maps are an eyesore, lacking depth and clarity.

Hi Onz Brau san. Thank you for the review. Regarding the elevation, we'll look into the data. Please let us know your activity log's URL (or date and title) from https://help.yamap.com/hc/ja/requests/new. To save the battery, we recommend you to use YAMAP in the flight mode ( https://help.yamap.com/hc/ja/articles/900000921323 ).
