Does everything better than anybody

GulfCoastBotanizer

I have used numerous mobile gps apps, and none comes even close to iHikeGPS. Being able to download topo and forest maps, for free, by WiFi before a trip is great. But if you are stuck on the trail outside your downloaded area, you can still get maps with even a minimal cell signal. The app handles waypoints, tracks and routes with ease, imports and exports gpx and kml format smoothly, and has the best built in help file I have ever seen. And everything can be edited right on the app. It’s all you need for gps.

Forest Service Maps

SnakeMagnet

This is a really good map program. It downloads both USGS and US Forest Service maps. Downloaded maps are absolutely necessary when outside of cell coverage. Having topo maps with labels that match US Forest Service road numbers and trail markers makes navigation a lot more certain.

Lacking organization

Adavi75

This app is amazing works great while hunting in areas with no service what so ever. The only thing I see that would make this app better would be a way to store maps and waypoints in specific folders for the different areas that may be downloaded. Would be 5 stars otherwise.

Developer Response

iHikeGPS uses search instead of folders so you don't have to spend time maintaining a folder organization. For example if you want only waypoints or maps that are in the Rocky Mountain National Park area, just type “40 105" in the search bar at the top of the Waypoints or Map List screen. Since Rocky Mountain National Park is located between 40° and 41° latitude, and -105° and -106° longitude, only those places in and around Rocky Mountain National Park will appear in the filtered listing of maps or waypoints.
