Fantastic Tool and Safety App

Backcountry ski touring is dangerous. This app allows you to plan and stay safe. Their maps are easy to interpret, this allows you to avoid or assess avalanche conditions with a high degree of accuracy. The price is very affordable, if you are a backcountry winter athlete get this.

Hand down

This is the best map system I have ever used. I even put my sign in as part of my wedding vows.

Good for basic travel

I have really only used this for skiing and mountaineering. Route making tool works well and 90% of trails appear on the map. Being able to see the current local avalanche forecast is great, and the slope angle tool layering is perfect. Being able to save maps for offline use is probably the most useful part. Having a pan, tilt, and rotate tool would be helpful but overall it works well for most backcountry ski planning. Updated winter imagery would be helpful, the current imagery is 5-10 years old. The ability to toggle between winter and summer imagery in the ski mode would be helpful for identifying recent avalanche paths as well. Overall a pretty useful app that makes backcountry ski touring and mountaineering trips easier to plan and safer overall.

Fantastic App

Great when out there trying to stay out of avy terrain in the backcountry.

Has become unreliable

This app was great and very user friendly. Like all the filters and how easy it was to change between them. Could use better route creating tools but the ones included work alright. But within the last month this app started to fail to save maps offline randomly and most importantly, gets stuck on this black screen when trying to use successfully downloaded maps that have been used in app offline before. Even after resetting the app, restarting the phone and redownloading the app offline has a black screen and nothing else. Made my route planning on the app useless and had to go off memory and tools. Fix this!

Love it

Crashes, no support

Worked once, then unable to run it. Opens , crashes after about one second. Support articles suggest turning layers off; articles are silent on what to do when app will not run for more than one second. Uninstalled, reinstalled, updated phone - no effect. App is a great idea, but utterly useless if it won’t run.
