Ratings and Reviews
Maps good but poor help files and support
Maps are fine but help files are out of date and how to actually download a map for offline viewing is well hidden under Store > and the little '+' symbol in the top left in the latest version. I missed this and emailed support a week before a trip but got no reply. Tried loading the maps to see if this would download them but they disappeared as soon as I was out of signal.
User Guide has screen images for an older version where downloading was much more obvious. Help Centre doesn't even have an FAQ for how to download maps.
Maps good but doesn’t work on other devices
The quality of the mapping is good but it won’t allow me to access my subscription on my iPad which is on the same Apple account. Works fine on iPhone.
Quite possibly the worst app in the app store- if you find yourself in the middle of the Mont Mallet glacier descending from the Canzio Bivvy in a storm don’t depend on this app - it will tell you in times of strife that you have no access or the offline download you diligently downloaded in your pre route planning is inaccessible.
