  • Expensive!

    Did not want this huge monthly bill. Not worth it since there are so many other options that are available for free. Sorry annual subscription fee is expensive!

    I find the navigation and mapping use to be quite beneficial when off track. I have checked the app and gotten back on track easily. Very worthwhile. I gave it four stars because I am still struggling making my offline maps. Learning curve.

    I’ve had really good luck with this app even in low reception areas. It seems to be thorough. Would recommend to others
  • I love the 3D topo maps!

    By Fieiwvsjcyqvsk
    Only recommendation is to show the elevation over distance profile when you select a trail.
  • Love it

    First time we went to a national park we didn’t realize the lack of service in and around the surrounding areas. Physical maps weren’t the greatest, so when I saw an ad for this app, I decided to give it a try. Best experience. I downloaded the maps for all the parks we were going to and had an amazing experience exploring and navigating through different hikes as well.
  • Great App!
