Generally very good with a couple of problems Used to be really good, but now there are licencing problems with the UK Explorer topo 1:25K maps. Backcountry Navigator have fixed this problem why can't AlpineQuest???
Amazing Mapping App... I use this app all of the time... It's perfect for travel and hiking. It's ability to download and use all types of maps and store them for offline use is excellent... especially Ordnance Survey (Memory Map) and Open Source maps. I love the way it tracks our walks and provides (and records) stats on the route.
Hands down best tracking app ever I adore this app. Maps are great, very detailed, even for very remote parts of the world. Makes all other mapping apps I've seen just look crude. Lots of functions. And you can import your own .klzm files to keep you on track when you're just bush whacking it through areas with no trails at all.
Great app Better than paper maps for all kinds of reasons but it's still good to have paper for the overview as you can't zoom far out on a small screen and have useful info. Also the labels, street names and such get smaller as you zoom in so sometimes you have to zoom in to the max just to figure out where you are. I've found that the accuracy varies widely. From 5 to 50 feet. Once while recording a track it put down a waypoint MILES away. I don't think it would work for geocaching. Works w/o problems on my Nexus5. Be nice to use a tablet but that wouldn't be convenient for hiking.
Hassle to get maps Was in a hurry to get this up and running so I selected the topo maps I wanted then rushed to the mountains. As it turns out I didn't select a high enough level of detail so it was pretty much useless for this trip. Yes, I could have tinkered with the app a lot more before going. That said, when you're wanting a detailed topo map you ALWAYS want the highest level of detail. In short, its not very intuitive. I had Gaia on my iPhone but didn't want to repurchase for Android. I should have. Its much better
Jam packed Awesome feature loaded app. Slight downside, as it is often with most of such powerful apps, is that it takes a bit of time and effort before you learn how to make the most of it.
• Added ability to suggest a new map (at the end of community maps list);
• Added ability to import on-board file based maps (AQM and QCT) in a new format for faster display;
