We arrived on a Friday late afternoon in August. There was about 6 different groups setup. Some with just one occupant and others with 6/8 people. Everyone was cool, but be prepared to have party noise late into the evening. The sound of the waves crashing into the rocks helps drown out the voices.
The new update is fantastic but there is one feature that I have been really waiting on someone to do and that is off-road nav via CarPlay. I normally tuck my phone away while driving so the ability the use and view off-road nav via my head unit would be lovely. I have a cheaper aftermarket radio and can’t afford a garmin tread or something like that so this one feature would be game changing. Even on x off-road doesn’t do this. (Technically they do but it doesn’t actually do much. As I am talking about a full useful UI. )
I have used the map app for all my off-roading. Great app. Map puts me exactly on the road/trail and track me for the entire run. I really like the inclusion of all the side trails and where they may re-join my elected trail. A feature if my elected trail gets too rough or has been washed out.
So, you want to know about off road trails? Overlanding? Conservation? Camping? This is the penultimate app and group for that. Wether you have questions about suspension, vehicle dependent travel, camping, this has it all.
Functionally this app is 90%. The forums work fine, if a little clunky. The map has a steep learning curve. This would be a 5 Star App if they added better iPad Support and made this Apple CarPlay compatible for the mapping.
If you haven’t tried the latest version it’s night and day difference. The look and feel is similar but the improvements, stability, and new features are everywhere. Quickly becoming the only app needed. Definitely different from other apps in that this one is community centric. The developers and Michael listen closely to all suggestions and quickly implement them. Pretty amazing really.
Subscribed as “Expedition” and cannot save trails or do anything but look at the app. Help???
Not worth the time
Just wanted to find an app that would show some good options for BLM camping and nearby attractions. This app doesn’t even let you search a specific location without “upgrading.” Are you serious with this nonsense?!?
Free app that does nothing for free. And you have to permission to everything, photo? Camera, location at all times…….for what? You don’t need camera access for me to look at a map.
