Editors' Notes

Thousands of trails for outdoor adventures

An essential App for hiking.


Not wanting the added expense of purchasing a separate GPS unit, this App provides ease of use coupled with a comprehensive system that enables offline/online usage. Proven a life saver when taken a wrong turn when walking in hills or woods but I’ve only tended to use as a backup alongside a physical OS map. The option to get the more detailed terrain specific area maps is handy for research/planning. The access to both national organisation’s and individual walks through the community link is extremely useful, especially when walking in a new location. Not having used the Skyline function yet I cannot provide an accurate assessment of it, from what I’ve looked into though, it would be beneficial for making real time adjustments to a route to circumvent difficulties. Overall, this is a excellent App that works well with the iOS on both the SE (during) & iPad (pre & post analysis). Definite value for money.

Last night my VR saved my life


OK, it wasn't last night, that was a bit of artistic licence. However, on a November night walk in the Cairngorms Mountains (Scottish Highlands) this app enabled us to quickly find the Hutchinson Memorial Hut in blizzard conditions at 2am.

- Full offline mapping and GPS features.
- Route planning which can be downloaded enabling you to do a full fly through on Google Maps/World.
- Distance and height gain/drop on routes plotted
- beacon buddy to locate the position of friends using the app
- Skyline feature that shows the name of hills/town/points of interest you are pointing your device at
- much much more

This really is a potential life saver. We've all heard of idiots who use their mobile to navigate in the mountains. I now want to know if they had this app on their mobile. It's incredible. I've been using it for years now and, although I take a map and compass as well (they never run out of juice or could potentially go faulty - well, a compass could, depending of geology of the area you're in) this app is my primary and, even on multi-day mountain treks, go-to nav tool. Although the map is packed, it's generally never referenced on the hoof.

Life saving kit:
Your phone. A waterproof case. An external power source.

Mandatory back up:
Map. Compass.

Be safe and enjoy your adventures. 👍👍👍
