Great to have an easy way to access open source topographic maps with trails. Your phone GPS works without a cell signal since it only needs to triangulate using satellite signals. Pair that with the "snapshot" feature to download maps for offline use, and you have an excellent navigation method. GPS can fail to get a signal sometimes, so it still pays to have some navigation skills.

This is a VERY USEFUL app and does exactly what it promises! I use it firstly to compare the elevation of various localities where rare dragonflies are found in our country (in order to identify areas with similar topography and possibly locate same species). The alternative benefit is that I can track my route to specific diodiversity hotspots and share the info with other field operatives.

Good app but lacking a few key features that would make it the best offline navigation software. Please add a constant "measure" button near layers button to measure distances rather than having to go to menu, which is slow and cumbersome. Also, add a dedicated home button for your current gps position, at the moment you have to press on location button twice - once to turn off then again to turn back on. And please show current gps co-ords at top of screen! These are very simple to code!
