What's New in Version 6.0.2
2015 US Forest Service Maps - Only App with these Brand New Maps!
▶ Shows forested areas and inholdings
▶ More trails and more accurately placed trails
▶ Very high resolution for superb Retina screen viewing and printing
This iOS 8 app runs just fine on iOS 9, but due to the system font change, there are some minor text appearance issues which will disappear as soon as the App Store review process releases our iOS 9 version.
6.0.2: Fixes a small offset of GPS data on some maps.
This is a rock solid app. I have been using it since version 1 and it has only gotten better.
It has never let me down and I have relied on it for many many days of traveling in the back country.
Having access to real USGS maps is a real plus in my book.
Handy app. Hope developer keep on developing it. Is it possible to utilize iPhone 's co processor(motion sensor) to save the battery while logging path? Another problem, Sometimes if you switch to camera to other app and then lick the screen, the logging will stop until next time you open the app. Wish to fix this.
