I love it

I use Earthmate almost ten months out of the year, out in the middle of the pacific. I love how easy it is to use with my iPad and iPhone for texting family back home from my Garmin Explorer+. It’s so easy to stay in contact with my loved ones now. Only wish it was easier to sync contacts. Other than that, I love it.

Would be great with Apple Watch companion app

It would be great to have an Apple Watch companion app and complication. Overall the app has been great, but I find myself checking my watch for elevation when on a hike, would be great to see it there soon!

Not for a serious map user

Cool sat imagery. How come we can’t plan routes from a mobile device? How come waypoints don’t have elevation information? How come the contour lines don’t have any data to include labeling of numbers or intervals and change colors at various zooms making it impossible to read elevation? Seriously. A map has bold contour lines with an actual number on it. Then the 5 lines or so in between have an interval. I learned this in basic training. What good are those lines if the user can’t interpret them. Fix this immediately it makes the app unusable in any real mountain terrain!
