Guu duu: Amazing App
Very accurate, even in remote areas with no internet or reception. Best gps app in app store in terms of quality and price!
HerbSmerf: Great app
This app is great! Offline caching of map tiles is a feature I really needed for my hunting and fishing trips where there is no wireless service to download maps. With this app, I cache the tiles before I go. Missing how to sync waypoints with other iOS devices.
Aknolish: Awesome for Hunting & Mountainbiking
I use this for all sorts of hunting, mountain bike and motorbike adventures, really is a great replacement for a expensive full on GPS unit.
Well worth it
Got us out of a sticky situation. Works well without cell reception. Will eat your battery and might not work so well under thick bush cover. But if you want that buy a proper gps for the back country. Amazing app for 5 bucks. Best money I've spent in this shop.
Iphonekidd: Awesome!
Just cache the maps before you go if you won't have data reception where you're going.
Bush chick nz: What a great app
This app allows me to waypoint locations of interest just by taking a photo which is easy and efficient thanks. The only thing I can think of that would better this app is being able to zoom in closer on the map as my waypoints can be very close together and it would help a lot for accuracy otherwise an excellent app.
