This definitely has better imagery than google earth app and the in app slope overlay is very nice! Still new to this and Will update review to 5 stars if I can figure out how to get tracks and routes to work.
I absolutely love the desktop version of FATMAP, so this review is specifically for the app and not the product. The lack of the ability to tilt your phone and view the map in landscape mode is absolutely backbreaking. I love mirroring my phone to my TV and looking at map apps that way when planning a tour (I do this a lot with CalTopo), and I can’t do that with this app. I’d probably pay for premium if there was a landscape view.
This is the only good app that has offline 3D maps. It’s huge compared with no offline, and usually no 3D maps at all. The map visualization is very smooth, even when u add tons of waypoints to it. Great great implementation of the 3D map, better than G_Earth. Easy to share with friends!!
I cannot give this app more than one star because I could never sign-in. I tried several angles, email, apple ID, nothing. Just an endless loop, each time delivering me back to the verification of my email page. And every time I gave my email, it bounced right back to the same request, without ever opening the app.
This app is trash. Software and mapping is great, but takes up nearly a gig of space downloading an offline map and it doesn’t load the topo when you pull it up. FATMAP is better used on a computer and cross referenced with Gaia GPS or another better offline application. Very disappointed. I’ve now tried to use this on two canyoneering trips in southern Utah, a backcountry ski tour in the wasatch and a 3 day raft trip in Idaho. Worthless. I want my $30 back.
By far the best hiking app - easy to use, nice UI, great 3D maps, well curated trails
There are so many apps out there now. FATMAP is hands down the best out of all them.
Got this app, saw it had a ton of detail on ski touring routes near me (front range Colorado), loved it and got the membership. Now when I go to the area that used to have all those routes and choose ski touring (berthoud pass) it says there aren’t any routes. Don’t know if it’s a bug or what but it’s incredibly annoying compared to how it was.
Hands down the best and easiest app for plaining backcountry routes! Super easy to navigate and excellent customer service! Also pairs seamlessly with other navigation devices including Garmin Inreach! Highly recommend and will alway add this into my planning on any adventure!
