What's New in Version 1.3.0
iPhone 5 support
Compass on map shows heading
These guys at Neotreks came along and absolutely RUINED Accuterra. I stopped using it and prefer a different app now, but before NeoTreks took it over, Accuterra was an awesome app. Even this latest version is riddled with bugs that I've informed them of, and they dismiss them as not reproducible even though I've sent them videos with how to reproduce them. iPad, iPod, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPhone 5, they exist on every device. The program was slightly buggy before they took it over, but these guys made it 10 times worse. Besides, now they're going to start charging a subscription to access their maps, which really aren't all that great compared to some other apps that have a higher initial cost, but no subscription fee, because they can use Google terrain maps, and OpenTerrain, which are WAY better than NeoTreks' maps. And to release a new version well over a month after the iPhone 5 is released, that DOESN'T support the screen on the iPhone 5, is ABSURD.
Seriously, find a different app to buy. The only reason I keep it installed is because I watch for updates and hope it will get better, because it used to be a great app.
Best app on my iPhone!
I absolutely love how this app is laid out! After searching forever for a way to have unlimited maps for all my adventures (looked at GPS, mapping software, GPS chips, etc.) this app hit the spot! Only $10 a year for any map I need?!?! LOVE IT! Before any trek, it's just a few seconds to select what areas I want to download maps for and WHALAH I have everything ready to go on my tiny iPhone! I don't even need service to use the maps (best feature!). The only downside is I need to buy a small solar charger for my first outdoor electronic device (besides my flashlight:)
Has BEST maps, but needs some work.
First, this app has the best maps of any app I've used. If you are a through hiker or anything more than casual hiker THIS is the app to get.
I hike 200 times a year. I use all the apps.
Now for the need to fix:
1. App does not track in the background on Google/Apple Maps, only on Neotrex maps.
2. App undercounts by about 5% compared to other GPS, so if you are using for distance tracking, keep that in mind. This could be fixed by allowing user-selectable breadcrumb accuracy.
3. Appears to exaggerate the altitude.
Yes its expensive the first time. I'd like to see it record data more often than thirty seconds. It needs a user selectable recording step.
It takes a LONG time to download maps in this thing, they are large files. It cannot be done in the background. Cannot queue maps either. Need a better solution such as purchase maps and download through iTunes.
A way to exchange and store recorded trails, besides snapping a pic with screen capture.
Fix these things and five stars for sure.
