  • Fantastic app

    I have used it for years and love it. Very high quality topo maps for no charge. Great support from the developer both for the app and for the topos he hosts on his server. Make sure your compass is calibrated before using the app. If your compass can't calibrate check Settings/privacy/location services/system services/
  • Incredible App

    This is an incredible app. It is easy to use, full of useful features, and comes with outstanding technical support from the author, Mr. Larry James. This app can be used in place of a gps device. Great product!
  • Great GPS/mapping/distance app

    I use this for 3 primary purposes: 1. When hiking I can see where I am and navigate to where I want to be. 2. When running it tells me how far I have gone. 3. When flying wildfire helicopter recon missions I can map perimeters and mark areas of concern. Works great with no observed glitches.

    Horrible app! I want my money back!!!! Maps in my area are well over 25 years old and not accurate!!! I would not recommend this to anyone. When I contacted the developer he said it didn't matter as terrain didn't change that much overtime. He must be in prison where there is very little change over time in terrain, because terrain where I live is constantly on the move.You couldn't find your way out of a one door broom closet with this!!!!!
  • Great hiking app!

    Really great application for hiking. I've used in remote High Sierra to Joshua Tree, always had accurate GPS readings. Also good for elevation tracking and waypoint markers. Compass integration also super helpful. All topo map downloads are free after buying the app and are automatically stitched together to create larger map areas. I always bring a paper map, but generally this is what look at most while on the trail.
  • You will love it

    I've had this app for a number of years and it continues to be my go-to backcountry navigation resource. No cell-service required-just gps reception which is very reliable. My only wish is that all my devices could sync through iCloud to retain all my routes.
  • Almost seems like cheating

    I have used this app extensively for backcountry navigation. Often I am where there are no trails. Compared to using a map and compass it feels like cheating. I always know exactly where I am and which direction I am facing. This app has saved me countless hours of wandering trying to figure out how to get where I want to go.

    I purchased both iHike and iSail apps this year and they are both TERRIFIC! They were both easy to download and easy to use. I used iHike in Colorado while horseback riding in the Gunnison National Forest. 80 miles of unmarked trails in an area that was "off the grid"! No problem for this app. I downloaded the maps prior to the trip and the app worked flawlessly. I used the app extensively to track my path into the forest. With the path recorded, it was much easier finding my way back home! I still brought hard copy maps and a compass as backup, but the iHike app was my principal source of navigation. 9 days of riding on unmarked trails and I never got lost. Thanks for making such great apps!
  • Excellent!

    We have had the prior version for about two years. We use this app frequently for hiking, canoeing, and biking. It has helped us make decisions on quite a few occasions. The price is right, and I like that there is no ongoing fee. Once we got through the initial education, it has been easy to use. I've recommended it to several friends. One of them has a fancy dedicated GPS, yet bought iHike and likes it.
  • Awesome app!

    I have used this app twice at the Daniel Boone National Forest (in the Red River Gorge area). There are some places here with a well deserved reputation of being impossible to find unless someone who knows how to get there takes you. Well, I have made it to two of these destinations now by using this app. If you are a hiker who likes to go off the beaten path you need this app. We've all spent lots of money on our hiking and camping gear and seriously this will be the best 10 bucks you ever spend.
  • Pretty good for the price

    For the average person, this is a great app for hiking. You can print maps, but you may not print maps with UTM or lat long grids on the edges. That is a problem if you want to print a map to take with you along with your compass. If you could print with location grids, you can navigate with your compass much more effectively when your phone fails you in the wilderness. Notice I said will fail you. DO NOT TAKE THIS PROGRAM AND PHONE AS YOUR PRIMARY NAVIGATION IN TO THE WILDERNES. You want a map and compass for your primary in a wilderness enviroment. THis is great to take with you once you know how to use it. I would give 5 stars if you could print with utm grids on the maps, but you cant. Make no mistake, I like this, but it is not a professonals program.
  • Best Navigation app on the app store

    I've bought and tried several other (more expensive) iOS hiking navigation apps, and this is by far the best one. Good map orientation, ascent profile, and route history support. Also unlike other apps this one doesn't make you register for an account.
