I’ve use this app for for many years and it’s been really helpful. But it’s concerning that it hasn’t been updated in two years. Also, significant sections of the Lake Tahoe rim Trail in California and Nevada are missing. This is a popular trail and should be shown on the Topo maps!
Everything is good and useful but the app screen size is not compatible with iPhone 11.
There is no squawking capabilities. The whole reason I bought it and ability to do so.
Does not have squawking!! Don’t waste your money.
This was my GoTo app for GPS tracking for years and I was glad to see that it is back Again, but that was 2 years ago. Much of the functionality is now broken again and the track editor is no longer available. The dev is still around as one of their apps was updated 2/20 but this app is essentially dead again. It’s a shame cause it was a great app. Would love to see an update but not holding my breath.
This used to be the best GPS app available. But as many other reviewers have pointed out it hasn’t been updated in over 2 years, neither has the accompanying Track Editor. It pains me to say this, but do not buy this app.
This is my favorite app to use outdoors, especially when I don’t have reception, and I tell everyone about it. Unfortunately after I finally updated my iPhone to iOS 13, I can’t import KMZs, the map just doesn’t load as well, and it doesn’t take up the whole screen so I know it’s outdated. Please please please update the app to support the newest iOS!!!
I am a commercial blue crabber and licensed tow boat captain and I use this app to keep track of 200 crab pots on the Gulf of Mexico and I also use it to locate vessels needing towing assistance. Even when I’m 30 miles offshore with no cell phone service, the offline maps never fail to guide me to my destination. So simple to use and the best tool I’ve ever seen on a cell phone
Please update your app. It has been 2 years since the last update. The in and out zooming feature glitches a lot.
Very useful application specialy in desert cause it have never eny Road but its not problem gps kit keep your life every where i prefer to all to get it
