Great app for recording a track as we are bushwacking

Best app I've downloaded

Use it when mountain biking in unfamiliar areas

Best app out there for mavigation amd it just keeps on getting better

But once you've been through the learning curve

This app is a must for anyone who likes to hike the back country

Best mapping app I have used

The pilot sustained minor injuries

Over all its really complicated to do simple actions

App stopped recording my track and crashed so many times I gave up

The learning curve is not worth the money

Confusing interface and no way to save on an external drive

The most unintuitive piece of software I have ever used

There is no customer service to contact

Creating a serious battery drain

Why is my map layer not selectable via the map layer button


The map quality is extremely poor if zoomed in hardly at all
