Used the Guthook app while hiking the AT in 2017 and was extremely satisfied with it. Everything in one easy to use accessible package, worked well on my iPhone. The people at Guthook continued to update and improve on the app as I used it. Bugs were addressed and fixed quickly, waypoints, resupply, water sources were at the location the app said they would be. Would recommend, and have recommended this app to anyone thinking about hiking or section hiking the AT. My satisfaction and trust in the people at Guthook has me returning for an app to take on the Arizona Trail and I hope an app for the PNT is released very soon.
Indispensable Hiking App
Of all the trail map apps out there this one is by far the best for the trails it supports. Yes I can navigate with a compass and paper map, but not nearly as fast or easily as with this app.
The long distance hiking support info (waypoints, resupply, water, etc.) is extremely useful. User inputs on the condition of water sources, Trail/Shelters, etc is great to have on the trail. I use the ability to plan routes and assess how difficult (elevation, terrain) a section will be all the time. The GPS w/o a cell signal is very nice allowing a quick check on how far to my next waypoint.
I also discovered the developers are very active in updating and maintaining the app so data stays as current as it possibly can and bugs get fixed quickly.
A must have if you hike these trails.
Still just crashes
I haven’t been able to use this app at all since the major update combining all apps into one. I had purchased a guide for a section of the AT, and found the app invaluable. There have been several supposed bug fixes since the major update, but the app remains completely unusable on my iPhone 6 with iOS 11. I really hope this app gets back to functioning before my next section hike.
