So convenient it’s ridiculous

I started using this app in Australia and I was sceptical about what I’d experience. I’ve been using it for almost a year now I’m really remote areas and I’m finding trails everywhere as soon as I hit regular hiking areas. I’ve also realised more recently that it has a whole bunch of features I didn’t notice at first like the ability to geo-tag photos and record trail progress. I now use it when I’m trailrunning to track elevation, speed and progress at the same time as checking I’m heading in the right direction. Naming and saving trails is also easy and quick. Just make sure you download all the maps of the area you are on your way to visit BEFORE you get there so that once you lose phone reception and the satellites kick in, you’ll have detailed maps for reference. 😉

Why can’t I have a perpetual licence? Why don’t you have a perpetual licence so I don’t have to pay every year to cache some maps?

Trail over a cliff?

This App saved the day. A while back, hiking in fresh snow, I was following cairns and found myself at the top of a cliff. Not a person within 100 kilometres. Looking back and trying to discover where I went wrong I realised I was not going to find the buried trail. Then I remembered I had loaded this App in my phone. No service there but the maps were all there and the GPS placed me on the map. As I zoomed in I found the trail I was hiking. That was unexpected as it was a rather esoteric trail that not many know about. I was able to immediately find my way back to the trail and relied on the App, rather than the cairns, for the rest of the trip. Thanks!
