Editors’ Notes

Thousands of trails for outdoor adventures.

So powerful and accurate... and Free!


I love this app! one my favorites; especially the fact that when off-line in the middle of the wilderness it has never let me down. I just turn it on put my phone in airplane mode turn off the screen throw in my backpack and forget about it; if I see a cabin/refuge that I want to document for a future hike, I take out ny phone, document on the fly. So easy. Most of all I'm impressed by how little battery it consumes. I use this app for mountain hikes, exploring cities and documenting my rides/runs (and exploring faster commute times!). With the free maps and ability to export it to my Dropbox and open it on Google Earth flawlessly: powerful and headache-free! It's ability to Simply document off-trail paths and analyze/share them with friends, is great! Moreover there are many unused capabilities of the app I see myself using in the future: other items like the buddy beacon, Skyline, and the ability to share my routes and peruse those of others are aspects to VR I'm excited exist and I see myself using more in the future.

Favorite app on the trail


I’ve used this app for years at home in New York and on long distance walks in Europe (Switzerland, UK, France, Austria). With the right settings it’s very accurate and doesn’t use much battery. I love the ability to draw routes ahead of time, to import and export gpx tracks, modify and save tracks, share my routes with other users, download maps for offline use including high quality free maps (eg. open cycle) as well as a wide selection of premium maps. It’s my go to app for walking and hiking throughout Europe and English speaking parts of the world.
