The level of detail in 2D and 3D maps is extremely useful to accurately plan routes. The ability to take a map onboard has helped me orient when exploring unknown new routes. The ‘flyover’ overview has become a priceless way to evaluate new routes and to relive (and share) great adventures. The growing volume of crowd-sourced data is helping create a repository of first-hand information on trails that more generic mapping software can’t provide (though you are in direct control of what personal data you share.) The “Guidebook” feature is a convenient way to document the best routes of your choosing, including notes and photographs. Superb already, and getting better.
This pairs so well with Strava. I really like the Strava route builder, but I have found their biking suggestions very much lacking. Fatmap’s recommendations are really great, and the flybys are useful for unknown mountain bike routes.
I’ve used this app for over a year for hiking. It has all of the trails as well as cross country ski trails, forest roads, snowmobile trails, etc. The 3D feature is very helpful. I download the maps before I head outdoors. The app works on Airplane mode and I can always see where I am and where my next trail junction is. It’s never steered me wrong or let me down. Love it.
Disappointed. Just hiked two well known trails in Olympic National Park that aren’t even in the database. One would think the national parks would be in here at least. Was so looking forward to using this app since I use Strava but maybe not. Features (except that the screen spins when you zoom in with your fingers, frustrating) are cool but trails are limited.
Very few routes in Charlotte, NC when I know there are far more out there. It might be better in the future.
Can’t get past the choose your favorite activities screen. Won’t let me select anything and won’t let me “continue.”
Can’t even login when using my Strava login…. Getting a “cannot complete strava connection” error which takes forever to load. Great first impression.
App will not proceed past Step 5 Cannot scroll up to select favorite sport/activity
Connected to my Strava account. Went thru the steps until the Choose your favourite activities screen…can’t advance past this screen. Restarted phone, deleted & redownloaded app but same behavior each time. Maybe needs an update?
Tried to get app Froze on step 5
