What's New in Version 3.2

• An overhaul of server communications to fix issues such as blank maps or the app claiming that the server cannot be reached.
Have map, will travel
There's a ton of map apps whose maps are based on Google, Garmin, Apple or Tom-Tom source data. These are generally informative--if you're in your car. But on your bicycle there are other things to be concerned about such as how many cars per day use a particular road, is there water available or food or rest areas? Is a trail paved, multi-use, off-limits or on public land? This type of information is usually only available on special local maps, bike maps, trail guides, small stuff. These types of maps are usually only on paper. This app takes those and makes them available on the iPhone complete with GPS reference in many cases. I like it.
Does not show trails by my home. The ones it does show seem to be brochures from the agencies that maintain the trail.
