I was a longtime Viewranger fan. Call me cheap but I don't want to pay a subscription service for an app I might use 4 times a year. This app has a very clear design, I spent $10 for great map coverage (perpetual not subscription) and within 15 minutes was out jogging in unknown territory with clear route tracking. Seems to be everything I need. After the hike I wish there were some additional statistics such as total elevation but still worth the 5 star review

Generally very good and my best option as a replacement for Viewranger, but I would prefer the arrow indicating location and direction to be clearer (Viewranger used to have an excellent, very sensitive long arrow showing exact location and direction you were pointing towards). Also some basic info like MPH would be useful, or am I missing something about where that is shown?

Update: don't know if it was the latest update, but the GPS is working as it should now and recording properly in the background. I have also gone into my setting to make sure the app is never put to sleep to save battery power (permissions all looked fine already). Plotting a route is still a bit clunky, but this is the best hiking tracking app I've used, as an alternative to the old Viewranger discontinued App.

Maybe the recent update (8.2.*) solves the issue? It is also important to allow Topo GPS to use the battery in the background. For this go to the Android settings > Apps > Topo GPS > Battery.
