I especially like being able to add waypoints. It’s a great planning feature.
Gut hook was a unique name for an app, Farout is generic as it can be.
This is a must have for hiking any long trail. The information you get while on trail is do helpful. Now that you can access via computer I find that it is much easier to use for trip planning. Before the update I only used on trail - now I can use both pre trip and during trip
I don’t know the story of what and why the Guthook app changed but it’s not worked right since changing to Far Out. I put a lot of money into the original, buying the trail downloads and now it’s worthless. It WAS perfect…why???
Guthook/FarOut is amazing App and a must have for any of the trail it covers. Makes it so much easier to plan for camping spots and water refills. You can find the elevation gain for each trip/day. You always know exactly where you are and how far to camp or water. And if by just you accidentally get off the trail you can find the direction back to the trail. It great, but I feel the latest update made it more difficult to filter the waypoints when just looking for water or campsite.
This is a great app! We are section hiking the AT and wouldn’t plan any trip without it.
Excellent app and prompt and timely technology support. Full marks.
Lame name change
This is, by far, the best app to use while hiking the AT. Tons of detail and great comments from other hikers.
I can’t get past the splash screen.
