What's New in Version 4.3.6
* Support for iPhone 5 screen sizes
* Fixes for numerous issues
Stable, Intuitive, Functional
I have done several hikes and bike rides with the app and found I really liked the functionality. Navigating the map is intuitive as are starting and stopping a trip. The uploading functionality was fast. While you can upload lower resolution photos to your trip on the website, the application still stores the full resolution photo in your Camera Roll. The power drain was about as expected, about 10-15% per hour of use on my iPhone 5, which will get me through most day hikes. Others have complained about crashing, possibly on previous versions, but but I haven't seen any major issues. During a recent hike up Mt. Fuji, I did find the trail on the map stop updating when I restarted after a pause. However, the upload worked exactly as expected, it was just an interface issue on the device. The saved maps did seem to work when I was out of signal range. I would like an option to see the altitude overlaid somewhere on the map.
Eats Battery Life, Loses Trips
Some of this might be I do not know how to use it right yet, but I find even with my screen off, this app will taker down from 80% to 20% charge in about 4 hours. I have turned down the accuracy settings in hopes it would pi h cell phone towers less often. I had all other apps closed.
In GPS only mode to save juice, I can understand lower positional accuracy, but I don't understand why downloaded trips flicker on and when viewing the map.
I paused a trip and then clicked "finish" but selected "upload later" because I was not in a good location for a data connection. The trip vanished completely, gone from the drafts folder and not in my trips. Obviously I did something "wrong" but I have no idea what.
It does do a good job of showing where I am along a downloaded route, but useless if I want to be out for an all day hike, for instance.
Not quite an "I want my money back" situation, but almost. I'll see if I can get the hang of saving my treks and figure out a way to make my battery last longer.
I use this app for hiking and backpacking instead of a separate GPS unit. The ability to use my iPhone for GPS tracking, great photos, and emergency calls is great.
I only have two complaints:
1 - battery drain. Obviously since it runs GPS on the phone, the battery doesn't last long. A handheld GPS unit lasts much longer and you can just carry extra batteries for it. I have gotten around this by carrying a solar charger (PowerMonkey Extreme). This is an effective solution.
2 - straight line syndrome. Infrequently, the app stops moving with me like it doesn't know where I am. When it catches up, it just adds a straight line from it last knew I was to my new location. Very annoying when this happens as I am section hiking and meticulously tracking progress and mileage.
This is a great App for storing trip data and photos. I highly recommend it!
