Requires an initial Internet connection to download photos and offline map (either Wifi or cellular).
Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 4.1.1
5 stars because it is the best app for the great smokey mountains available on App Store. GPS worked when iPhone data wouldn't. Map was accurate and could navigate park and find locations on trail (make sure you download it before leaving home).
There is room for improvement with features like point to point navigation, more trail and park details (adding the time it takes to hike back), and adding features like haptic feedback when reaching points of interest or distance traveled. But since you are getting away from technology when you visit the area and probably want to conserve battery life... it does what it needs to do.
Great app for lovers of the Smokies
This is a great app for lovers of the Smoky Mountain National Park. Lots of great useful information, plenty of practical help. Just got a cabin that backs up to the park & Haven't even begun to use all the features yet! Highly recommended!
