  • How to tell which maps to get?

    It looks like this app has the potential to be very useful, but descriptions like “includes three AMC huts and six peaks“ does not tell me if it will include the peaks I will be on or the huts On my route. Inside the app the maps need better descriptions so we know which ones to spend money on before committing to a purchase. It really shouldn’t be that hard to add about six more lines of specific peak name and trail names in the base app.
  • Worked great on the boundary trail.

    I'm a former troglodyte and a late adopter of technology. I've loved maps since I was a child, and I know how to read a map and use a compass. (I spent a dozen years in the Coast Guard and half of my career was at sea. I was a Quartermaster - I really know how to navigate with a map.) But I rode to the trailhead in a horseless carriage, and I'm carrying a pack made from nylon, not cotton. Rejecting technology on principle is silly. I'm using the app to hike sections of the PCT in Washington as time allows. This app is awesome! I love the ability to look at the elevation profile between two points along the trail. That makes planning my day's route much simpler. I also love the comments. It's nice to know that someone passing a seasonal spring two days ago was able to get water if that's a spring I'm hoping to get water from myself, and it's nice reading about where there are good hammock sites. I have another app on my phone that allows me to download the USGS 7.5 maps. The two together are an excellent combination. Why four stars instead of five? If the app showed the topo lines in the background and let me "flip flop" it so it's set up for southbound travel, I'd give it five stars.

    I hiked the AT with a paper guidebook instead of Guthook’s. Now for the Colorado Trail I bought the Guthook guide. I can’t believe I ever hiked without it. It is so helpful for knowing where tent sites and water sources are. 100% worth the money.
  • Good in certain regions. Bad as it misses a lot of topo on Eastern side of Sierra Nevada

    Most expensive app ever. If you can’t use a map and compass like minimalist should, then stick to day hiking at the mall.
  • Amazing!!!
