    This was my GoTo app for GPS tracking for years and I am glad to see that it is back Again! Highly recommend this app to anyone looking for a versatile GPS tracker that also offers great options for exporting. Just hope that an update for Track Editor is in the works as that is an essential tool for completing the GPS “Kit”
  • Great GPS App for hiking walking biking etc.

    Great 🙏😄👍😎🐰 Thanks for the update yay!! 😎✌🏻 Can you please update track editor too? Also why is open street maps not showing when I switch to that map type? The default google map works. I use this mainly for hiking. Recently I have been using it for urban hikes. I cache my maps so I can see then even if there is no Internet. Great feature. When you hit the sleep wake button GPS Kit tells you that it's working in the background so you don't have to have the app open. You can save your maps which is great and has a great sharing feature and exporting, so you can view in Google Maps or Google Earth later. It's easy to email yourself or friends to show them where you were. I find this app to be very accurate, so if you are a hiker like me this is the app to get. Another cool feature is you can cache the maps so if you saved a map and want to go back there in the future you can download the map for that area so you won't have to download the maps again next time you go. Sweet feature :D
  • An update!!

    I've used this app since the early days on my IPhone4. Recently was forced to try other options as it seemed this app wasn't continuing. I'm so so happy to see an update for this! Can't wait to have this ready to go for hunting season again! Thanks so much! FYI this is the only review I've ever made on an app, just want to express how much I love GPS Kit and how exciting it is to see an update!
  • Simply the Best

    Finally an app to my favorite navigation app. Now I can continue with my hikes and other off-road navigation without fear of the app being dead because of iOS updates. Yea guys.

    9/1/17 update - At last!!! Great map downloads (for offline mode) are once again available. Nice work, Garafa team. The latest update takes care of the buggy issues that have developed. I'm excited to once again be able to recommend this app. 4/18/17 update - no updates in over 2 years. The app frequently crashes, and most of the maps are not available in offline mode. This used to be one of my favorites, but I am coming to the conclusion that the developers have abandoned this orphan app. Great app. Variety of maps (and ease of caching for off-line use) provides fantastic usability. 5/1/15 update - There is an issue with latest version (or latest IOS?) that prevents caching of any map except Google Terrain. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
  • Great Tool.

    Thank you Garafa for updating! Love this app and look forward to future updates. Maybe bringing back squawk.

    At long last, 64 bit update! GPS Kit is the most useful and flexible outdoor app on iTunes. Very glad to see the update... all of the features that became 'buggy' after recent iOS upgrades work flawlessly once again. Happy that this app can continue to live on my devices.
  • Glad it is updated to 64 bit, but Squawk feature is gone.

    Still many great features, but one of the ones I liked the most was Squawk which is now gone, otherwise I would have given five stars.
  • Fantastic map app! (Update, still the best)

    I've tested many apps and GPS units, and this is by far the best app. It allows me to download and save maps for offline navigation which is extremely helpful in Baja or other remote regions. I've recommended this app to everyone who has a iPhone or iPad. They are all happy with their purchases. Update: I'm thrilled to see that the developer has continued to support this awesome software even after Google Earth changed their image use policy. I've been using this app in conjunction with MapBox, and it's been working great. I've tried all other legitimate GPS apps Hema, LeadNav, and Gaia. Those are pretty decent, but only this app does everything I want and need. Thank you GPS Kit!
