Ratings and Reviews
Very Cool, Better Than Expected!
I recently took my iPhone 4S equipped with the Mophie Outdoor Edition battery pack and app on a weekend splitboarding adventure in bitter (subzero) conditions. As expected, the unit had trouble aquiring a GPS signal in some stormy weather and thick trees but, when I did have GPS signal, the app did a great job tracking and finding our current location. The stats feature came in handy when it came time to review elevation profiles.
The real key and beauty to this app is in the downloadable offline topographic maps. Without the topographic maps pre installed on your phone, you are dependent on a cell tower/data signal to show your area in fine detail. Get a subscription and download the detailed quadrants before you head out!
It's great being able to use the iPhone as another navigation tool on my backcountry adventures and not have the need for a cell tower signal. You can also use the app to import and export KML/KMZ files allowing you to plan or review your tracks on Google Earth or other navigation software.
The only gripe I have is the stats feature does not allow for an elevation profile of imported preloaded tracks. Only for tracks that were completed using the unit can statistics such as elevation profile be displayed.
All in all, a great app! I recommend it to those who like to get outdoors and want to trim down their gear, by combining their phone & GPS into one.
No, it's not a Garmin
Please people, stop with all of the "I don't need my Garmin outdoor GPS anymore" comments. I have a whole bunch of iPhone outdoor apps that I love, that work pretty well and that I use for planning my trips. But when I'm out in the backcountry and I'm hiking for hours or days, I do not rely on my iPhone for everything. That's why a good Garmin outdoor GPS cost a few hundred dollars. It's for those times that you really glad you bought it.
So it's great to praise this app (which, incidentally, is not nearly as good as many other mapping apps like AllTrails, Backpacker, Gaia or the National Geographic trails app, even) it's halfway decent and is nice looking. They just need to make it more readable, to me.
My rant is over. Thank you.
Buy Gaia Instead
Accuterra got bought out by NeoTrecks which got bought out by Mophie. Each time, the new company made customers purchase the app again. These were expensive apps and I spent a lot of money on each iteration.
After my last (my second) purchase of the same app, I was promised it was a one time fee for unlimited map downloads. Then they got bought out again by Mophie and now I'm supposed to pay a subscription. They should grandfather in existing customers instead of screwing them over and backing out on the promise of the company they bought out.
The new app looks exactly the same as the old app. No changes, no improvements to justify the new subscription. The only thing that has changed is that they are forcing existing customers to pay up again. They're just out to make a buck and have no integrity as a company.
I'll be using Gaia from now on. At least that company has had stability it's entire existence and is trustworthy. Mophie is just trying to take your money before they sell again to the next unscrupulous company
