  • Awesome

    by BiggDogg778

    I downloaded this app a week ago and it has been totally worth it. I take it hunting to track my route and it gets me out without getting lost. Plus keeps my favorite spots for getting back quicker. Only issue I have is I can't get the pro version.

  • Best GPS Tracking App!!

    by Brand_12

    This is the best GPS Tracking you'll ever find. Pros: Keeps tracking in the background even without Wifi Signal, Stops only when runs out of battery. Has a a very accurate close-up tracking. Can track for over a week continuously. Cons: When kept running in the background, your battery life will go out VERY quickly! I recommend keep connected to a mobile battery when traveling. Experience StoryTime: One vacation to Canada I kept tracking were everywhere i went, but the battery lasted very shortly everyday since I spent the whole day out everyday without charging. On my last day before leaving Canada, my phone had ran out of battery like usual, and just as I was arriving the house of our friends ,which we had spent the whole week on, I dropped my phone on the snow and didn't notice. I thought I had lost it forever because Find my iphone cant find a turned off phone, but 3 weeks later, our friends still over in Canada found it when some snow around their house had melted and sended it back to me in the USA. I charged it and it amazingly WORKED! I was able to recover every picture I had taken and of course the Tracking I had all the time. Except after it ran out of battery. So ive learned to be more careful and now ill carry a mobile Battery. Great App!

  • Great app

  • Nice walking app

    by Grego68

    Nice app for walking. Of course gps is tough on battery but that is to be expected.

  • Nice when it works

    by abbagabbablooey

    The last several times I've tried this app on a ride, it magically shuts itself off a few minutes into the ride. It's too unreliable. Got back from a 3 hour ride today to find the stopwatch still running (thanks but I already have a clock) and the only map travel recorded was about a half a block next to my home. Not worth using.

  • Great for off-roading!

    by MTVb34

    This app is great for tracking off-road adventures, whether your method of travel is on foot, four legs, or rubber. The app itself could use some minor improvements in ease of use. Overall, it's an incredibly useful tool, even when you're faced with "No service" in the middle of nowhere.

  • I am a real estate investment broker. This app provide a huge opportunity to study neighborhoods.

    by 1031 Guru

    As a real estate investment broker this app allows me to quickly assess neighborhood features by aerial views that can be magnified for greater accuracy. Extremely valuable app.

  • Great Ap!

    by Fredrics1

    Fun to use and accurate

  • Great app

    by Nemo427

    Easy to use. We used this to help find corner markers while property-hunting. Great little tracker while taking walks to determine how far we walked on unknown trails and roads. The biggest problem is we don't see how/where we can purchase this app so we can save more then 3 waypoints or tracks. Searched by app name & developer name. Nothing in app either. We have had two minor problems while walking an area with lots of elevation changes. It stopped tracking about 1/4 mile of walk. (Might have been due to position of phone while someone else started to carry phone in pocket.) another incident was while walking in area that may have spotty coverage. The track said we walked 42.3 mph.

  • Great app.

    I use it several times a day to log fitness walks.

  • Great app!!

    by Easyb3

    Works great in the woods

  • Amazing precision

    by Bob4Linda

    Went on a power walk around our country town, and the GPS map was able to distinguish which side of the sidewalk I was on! Of course the bonus is the speed and distance stats!

  • Boat trip!

    Took the boat out on the San Francisco Bay Area delta waters, drove around for hours and found my way back, no problem!! Great App!

    I like the tracker, cool app.

  • Very pleased

    by Waterboy1212

    This is a cool app. Did an excellent job tracking our vacation drive to the Dells. Shows exactly where we made good time and time traps. You can even look back on the map and see every place we pulled into a gas station. Extremely precise. Impressive.

  • Cool app

    by bcroygbiv

    Works great, only wish it continued to track uninterrupted while in background mode. Seems to stop tracking in background mode after about half an hour or so.

  • Senior

    by EWM2013

    I walk everyday and I use this app regularly. It keeps up with distance I walk each time I walk then keeps a record with the date for me to look back for reference. It seems to be accurate as I have checked it with a Fitbit. They both agree on same distance. It's easy to use even for a senior citizen. Thanks.
