Note 1. iPhone 4 (12 hours), iPhone 4s/5/5c/5s (14 hours) - the effective battery duration depends by the battery condition, by the temperature, by other apps currently running in background mode and the phone usage.

Note 2. Pictures captured by Aqua Map while recording the track are automatically linked to the track itself, and sent with the track when you share it. To be noted that pictures captured by Aqua Map will be available on your iPhone/iPad internal archive too.

Like any GPS, the signal quality can vary very much depending by the amount of visible sky, foliage, weather condition, etc. GPS is not reliable indoor.

The continuous GPS usage, also in background, can drastically reduce the battery life.
