DOWNLOAD NOTE: Because of AccuTerra’ broad coverage and remarkable detail, the available map bundles are very large and must be downloaded over a WiFi connection. Some of our partnership products offered in the AccuTerra on-demand iPhone app, such as SnowRanger™ ski areas by Mountain Dynamics, are not available in the Map Catalog.
GPS NOTE: NOTE: Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.

Reviewed by a senior citizen hiker and Jeeper
I almost spent hundreds of dollars purchasing a Garmin or Magellan handheld GPS unit before I discovered NeoTrek HD for $4.99 and the one year acuterra map subscription for $9.99.
Both my iPhone 4S and my IPAD 2 have GPS receivers built in, so they can display my present position even without cell phone coverage.
And because I can download my choice of maps to my device before hitting the trail, I can watch my progress in real time while on the hike. I can also save each "adventure" for review later, and see not only my trail on the map, but a statistical report of time, distance, speed and elevation as well.
This program works well, but still needs minor tweeking. Still, I rate it as 5 stars and recommend it without reservation.
Not bad for the price. It's fun to plot tracks with and then go back and review. Only issue is the track line is dots I wish it was a solid line.
Not suitable for hiking
I had high hopes for this app, particularly with the "HD" in the title. But even with the most detailed maps downloaded it's far rougher than expected.
I'll keep searching for a detailed topographical map for my hikes.
