Good terrain GPS app
This app is very impressive. It is able to display a number of different types of maps in an easy to use 3D format. Other apps I have used give you a terrain map, but this one actually puts the map into a usable and scrollable 3D format that helps you see the terrain as it really is. It even provides a terrain height multiplier option so you can adjust the hill heights to your liking (hill height helps it "feel" closer to the users perspective from the ground).
This app accomplishes a lot with many user options but still keeps the UI very simple and straightforward - very important.
One thing that needs changed is when i am looking at an area and decide to download the map, the app takes you back to your current position rather than staying where you are on the map. Please fix this issue.
A few other issues I have run into is the compass lags a lot, waypoint info often lists the DMS coordinates as a "..." because the display box is too small and also after I have used the app for a while, the waypoints stop working (just takes you to current location) and thus I have to close and restart the app for them to work again.
Nothing matching this apps essential features
Here is what it does very well for wilderness hiking:
• Allows free topo maps download to memory so a data connection is not necessary when hiking.
• It works perfectly in airplane mode. This saves phone battery and allows much longer duration hiking use (many hours) on the phones battery
• It shows terrain in 3D with contours, unmarked trails, (herd paths)
• From experience, it shows precise position on the map even when some satellites are blocked .
• Shows altitude , miles walked ascent, descent , route terrain and ascent estimations.
All in all this is a great app, it has never let me down , crashed or done anything unexpected.
It has a few livable bugs , but I have found nothing else that covers all of the essential features.
Best app for navigation I've seen
I own a very nice garmin. I never use it anymore. This app allows you to plan out routes and follow along even in airplane mode. It is so user friendly and far easier than my garmin. My only two gripes would be that I can't easily see how far mileage wise I've gone during a hike and that in the very cold it doesn't work well. That's a cell phone issue though.
