Love This App!
My wife and I have been using this app for hiking for probably four years now at least. Using waypoints and tracking to them is very useful on this app, and it has undergone many improvements through the years… Thanks so much for your attention to all the details!
Also, kudos for making an Apple Watch app. I was on the verge of begging for one of those, and it popped up before I had a chance. It's a wonderful addition to an already great app.
If I could beg for one additional feature for the Apple Watch, it would be to have one additional screen that shows the Compass, so you could literally see where you are left or right of the waypoint you're tracking to.
Combined, my wife and I have broken the front glass on three iPhones while using this app in the past. I think we're going to save a few iPhone screens by just using the Watch. Thanks again very much for your wonderful app!
My solo hike companion!
I must say I finally found this app! There were many apps out there and track all sorts of info for your hike, but they often forget we need a trail map too! Motion X GPS had all trails on the map (trails that cannot be found on google map) and I am so please to have it handy. I love hiking solo and so this is the best tool I have to estimate my route. Two things I have to complain about though: 1. The elevation information is wrong on some mountains (I.e. Lehigh Gap Appalachian Trail) 2. For twice, my walking route jumped from PA to CA and back! Is this a glitch? And my map route now looks like a kids scribbled on a paper. Dear developer, please fix these bugs! Future improvement idea: customizable Apple Watch info. I often just need time, distance, average speed and elevation but I often find myself constantly swiping through the screen to find the info I need. Nonetheless, great app and highly recommended for hikers!
Fantastic General Outdoor Navigation/Topo App
Motion X did a great job in building an app that turns your iPhone into a powerful GPS. Considering how inexpensive the app is, it is a no brainer. While doing an overnight hike this app on my iPhone 6 was way better then my buddy’s dedicated hand held GPS. The ability to download the topo maps (MotionX Terrain) to your phone is the key feature. Switching my phone into airplane mode still gave me the GPS fix so I could check the map as often as I wanted without my phone reaching out to find the non-existent signal which is what really kills the battery. The interface doesn’t take too long to get use to and before you know it you’ll be navigating to random lat/long fixes and getting to enjoy being outside. I can’t say enough for how great this app is considering it uses what you presumably already have and is only a couple bucks. Keep up the great work and support Motion X!
