***** Best GPS App yet! - g11nMike - USA
Pathaway is the best so far. All my other topo and tracking apps will be removed now.
***** Finally! View GPS raster maps on the iPhone - world28 - France
All other programs have fallen behind now! Just super. Now, the dream tool is here!!. Bravo developers!
***** Only GPS App you will need for the backcountry - KootenyGuy - Canada
This is it...The only GPS app you will need for backcountry activities! The PathAway team have done a great job of putting the backcountry at our iPhone fingertips.
***** This is it! - Goosilein - Germany
Perfect! This is THE off-road GPS navigation program in general. There is no better and certainly not at that price. For me, the most "killer features" now implemented.
***** At last, all my maps on the iPad - Fantasiakreuzfahrt - Germany

What's New in Version 6.03.06
Truly a case of read the reviews...wish I had!
I don't write many reviews on here and when I do, it's almost always to reinforce a great product. Sadly, occasionally you feel the need to write one when you feel a product is clearly not up to specifications....this is one such product, in every way.
Clearly designed from a Droid perspective, the menu system itself (indeed the entire MMI--Man-Machine-Interface) has a dated feel to it and looks very antiquated. I wonder how Apple even let this in the store...it does NOT follow the Apple Style Guide in many, many aspects. Want to see? Just open the Help file and you'll see what I mean. An ability to contact the developers? Not imbedded, you'll have to go to their web page to get that. It simply in no way follows an Apple experience, it is an Android experience from front to back.
Now about contacting the developers....good luck with that one. I had an issue on this program and sent an email....ZERO response. Not even a reply email that my email had been received. Conversely, I contacted GAIA GPS the same day with an issue and not only received a response back to indicate that they had received my email, I had an answer back in two hours.
Not that this is a bad program/app per se....if you're a total map head that has in investment in custom maps, this seems to be a willing program to import and work on those maps. But as a simple, Apple-ish experience of using your iPad or iPhone as a true mapping device if falls far, far short of GAIA and others.
Add to it, it's ridiculously expensive. I spent US $29.99 on a program that isn't as capable as its peers. Many comments on here point you to their website and mention how old the posts are. They are for the most part except for the PROBLEMS which are VERY current.
Highly, highly NOT recommended. I'd certainly love my money back!
