Last Update gets it Close to Perfect!

I have been with this app since the beginning and my experience has been awesome. I personally use it for going out in my UTV which works great. I even have communicated and heard back from the creator on some of my suggestions which really means alot. It has all the features I need but would love a few more vehicle oriented options like a inclinometer. But that being said, there probably is only a small group that use it for off roading. Recently it was updated to allow you to use your iOS Pro subscription with the Mac version which is so great, one of the only things lacking so THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THAT!! I would recommend this app to serious and casual hikers or riders or practically any outdoorsmen, is so close to perfect.

5 Stars This is the best Hiking App

This is the best hiking app. Easy to use, great tech support, uses very little battery energy. Easy to plan a route or just to check where your at. Very accurate for trails, it uses the path that others have hiked on when there are multiple paths/trails or old trails on maps. I have used this for 2 years in Yellowstone and Grand Teton National Parks.
