The app seemed to have a lot of promise. Unfortunately the tracking stopped before we got to the national forest. I assume this is because of low cellular signal in the forest rather than an issue with the app. The problem is I can expect low cellular signal in most of the National Forest trails in Michigan.
Great idea and execution to make MVUMs easy to use. However, it seems nearly all of the MVUMs around me in Colorado are outdated so the app doesn't serve much purpose until the database of MVUMs is regularly updated with what's available on the USFS ranger district sites. It would also be nice to have some sort of in app file management to see what is already downloaded and what is pending, plus the ability to delete or update specific maps and/or regions.
As another reviewer put it, this app seems to have a lot of promise, but it needs some work. For example, for Tennessee area, there are lines shown that would signify off road tracks. However, these roads are not for off road. It is just regular roads. It would be great if the app would have color grids to signify off road lanes. Also, it does not connect to my GPS and other maps such as Google Maps and Wayze. I worry about trespassing onto some private land. There are many private land in middle TN area, and I do not want to accidently destroy someone's property. It would be great if the app maker fixes these issues.
Works great I use it regularly hitting trails in the Francis Marion National Forest minimally maintained and non maintained roads. Some are hardly visible and this GPS works great for finding them and identifying which are non or minimally maintained. Two thumbs up
Good update! UPDATE: I did see the update and just got a chance to attempt to duplicate the issue of previous version. Bravo! Good Job ... or MDPI ... not sure, but works as expected. Nice.
Been looking for something to guide me on local forest roads. Works great on my Galaxy S7 Edge. Used it this afternoon for hours of back roads riding in the forest. Thumbs up on this great app. Question for developer: Any way to flag an area you encounter on the trail? Would love to see it on the map for future reference or going back to later. Sammy
More seamless MVUM map data? Satellite imagery? Seasonal Dates? A whole lot more? WOW! Yep we’ve got lots of useful new features as well as a few bug fixes in v1.6.
