• Supports common datums (WGS84, TWD67, and TWD97) and common grids (TM2, DD, and DMS) in Taiwan.

◆ PLEASE NOTE ◆

• Hikingbook uses GPS tracking in background when the tracking function is enabled. Continuous use of GPS in background may cause battery drain and decrease battery life.
• While GPS can improve safety in outdoor activities, it should be noted that GPS cannot wholly replace other traditional navigation tools such as compass and maps. In addition, positioning errors or no-signal situations may arise depending on vegetation, topography, and weather condition. Prior knowledge of GPS and its limitations is strongly advised.

Unusable for a new user. The app forces you to enable GPS ALL THE TIME, why not only while using the app? I verified the email but the app still promts the error "please verify email". Without an account you can basically do nothing. The app prompts "Do you want to download the map?" and then "sorry you have to create an account". Why you ask in the first place??!

Hi, thank you for providing valuable feedback. We are sorry you did not have a nice experience launching the app. Due to the word count limit by Google Play, we could not provide a detailed response to your questions here. Please kindly contact us at: support@hikingbook.net so that we can help solve the issue. Thank you very much.

It keeps asking me for location allowed all the time. Even I said no. I don't want it to be tracking my location all the time.

Hi Leon Tan, we're sorry to hear you didn't have a satisfactory experience using the app. The location permission (to be set to "Always") is necessary for the app to record tracking even when app is in background, which is often the case when used in the outdoors. We have added additional explanation on the permission page. I hope this explains.

Hi Brian, we're sorry you didn't have a good experience. We take your privacy very seriously and will not ask for data you do not want to share. If you would be so kind as to let us know which part of the data we request that is unacceptable, it would really help us clarify things and improve user flow.
