very useful

Has some quirks, but by far the best ipad GIS program we have found so far. Allows direct upload of .shp files and georef'd rasters, plus export of wypts and tracks. We use it regularly during our field work. Good support.

It's great when it works

This is a great app when it works. However I have had multiple issues with it crashing. At one point, it would crash whenever I would try to get it to display maps. After a installed the latest iOS, I could access my maps but now it kicks me off when I try to edit a new route or track. I have just uninstalled it and reinstalled and will see if that works. Annoying!

No Non-Sense Mapping app

It has a very simple interface, no more elements that are unnecessary, but it works as advertised. For users with a bit of knowledge this app is the best there is in the market. People who need this app already know what to do with it, for all others, a less advanced app may be in order. The author responds quickly to all inquiries.
