Map downloads are slow, but when completed the maps are fully functional (they fixed previous bugs I ran into). It would be great if they removed the persistent notification when the app is in the background (useless white square in notification panel) and removed the associated audible alert when switching apps.

Great when offline works, otherwise very slow. GPS breadcrumb feature jumps constantly, adding miles to tracker. I have also noticed that my offline maps are wiped within a day and I have to redownload. Very frustrating.

Useless! Just wanted directions or map for the county park. Sadly, Google map 10 times better.
