App Reviews

  • Go-to Navigation APP

    By s20055
    This quickly became my go-to navigation APP. Accuracy, ease of use, great assortment of map layers...perfect APP for all of my outdoor activities. I use this APP exclusively for hiking, mountaineering, backpacking and now hunting. The Developers frequently provide timely updates and tweaks that continue to improve the APP. I have permanently retired the GPS and now only use this APP with a paper map and compass as a backup. I have found the clarity on an iPhone 6s to be superb. Downloading maps for offline use is quick and easy. So easy in fact that I don’t feel a need to accumulate downloaded information; use it, delete again if needed. Thanks Gaia for constantly making improvements!
  • Great For Hunting!

    By qac1991
    I use this app to mark every tree I climb when I hunt. Once t is marked I can return the next morning without fumbling around in the dark trying to find a decent tree to attach my climber to. I am hoping they incorporate a few more features specified toward hunters using the app, such as wind direction at a marked location.
  • Some Nat Geo maps missing in Paid Version, but still has some great features.

    By Dude in the nude
    I use this app for backpacking, and for the most part it works good, but I upgraded to the full version to get access to the Nat Geo maps only find out that the Maps for the Ozark Trail Maps aren’t available as a layer; it makes me wonder how many other maps are missing.
  • Highly recommend

    By wolfmansbro
    My go to offline mapping app. Some of the best base map selections available. I’ve used it in Utah, along the Arizona Trail and on a trip to the Alps (offline Swiss Topos!). National Geographic trails illustrated maps are a nice addition. Wish the file structure was a little more intuitive.
  • Backpacking tested

    By M.NINE
    I gave this app a live test on a 4 day backpacking trip off the grid. Subscribed to the premium membership so i could download maps offline. It was fast and smooth even on my old iPhone 6, which has otherwise slowed to a crawl since iOS 11 was released. Only crashed once in 4 days. Ideally it wouldn't crash at all but given the age of my phone I couldn't complain. Looking forward to this new update. It looks big!
  • The Most Amazing app I have ever owned

    By Zekex12
    A friend told me about the app on the trail and showed it to me. Before I got home I had downloaded it. It has so many options and overlays. Absolutely wonderful
  • Poor iOS11.1.1 Integration

    By Dr. Krane
    Multitasking window on iPad 13” is horribly buggy. Feature request: you know how you can select factors to track, like sunset speed etc. PLEASE ADD: altitude from which you’re looking from above. AND relative sunset/sunrise times depending on the Center of the map. ALSO please add relative time according to cosmic time, I believe this feature was present at one point, so it would not adhere to time zones, but would calculate actual astronomical time. If in nyc it’s 13:00 then in New Jersey it’s 13:02, you get the point.
  • Simply the best!

    By mburr1
    This app has been a total game changer for me. Makes navigating in the backcountry so very easy... It turns your smartphone into a powerful gps tool that you can use virtually anywhere!!!
  • Easy to use, good support

    By Ringlemate
    Best GPS app I have found. Excellent background maps and quick map downloads to use when going to areas with no cell service.
  • No release notes

    By WITstudent
    What changed. I pay relatively a lot of money to support this app. This is the second update in a row that didn’t include release notes. You used to write very good release notes. Did you just fix bugs? What bugs? Tell me. I’d like to know. Improve performance? Great! Where? New features? Tell me. I can’t give you a good rating for starting a bad habit.
