Almost great, BUT.


Would I buy this app again ... probably. Because it has what may be a distinct feature in it: you point your iPhone in any direction and it shows satellite view of what’s ahead (up to 17k feet with $1.99 upgrade).
BUT it has two missing things to wish for:
= You can’t zoom in close enough to clearly recognize things. There is an intersection about 500 ft from my house and I could not clearly identify it.
= There are no road names so its even harder to identify locations you see in the satellite view. It needs a hybrid view.
If the developer added these two abilities my opinion of the app would go from OK to Great.

Up-to-the-minute terrain features


I find that when I'm hunting in the woods this is a great feature that helps me get a Birdseye view of my surroundings. I find it very good tool.

Enjoy while Climbing


Have use this application on every climb I've been on in the past six months. Has come in handy several times.
