MotionX GPS Reviews


Great app!  hipperken  5 star

I've tried over a dozen different bicycling apps and this is my favorite so far. It's laid out well and very easy to use!


My constant hiking buddy  wagill  5 star

Great app. Very functional. Friendly interface. Lots of preferences. I take it with me on every hike; I love keeping a catalog of my hikes with pictures and related information. Great investment.


Works great for me. Lots of cool data collected.  Wojc0008  5 star

Great app! thank you!


Love it!  Mwdbm  4 star

Works well. Notifications are set up nicely.


Best app for navigation and tracking out there  roxo56  5 star

I've used many over the years and now I have the best app for back country navigation

Neon Skier

No good for serious outdoors  Neon Skier  2 star

No true topographic maps showing townships and sections, only offline maps are very weak and no offline satellite option. Can I get my money back?


Love this app  Astrorph  5 star

Great app. Simple to use!

Goodbye Everett Herald

Great for hiking. Horrible for searching.  Goodbye Everett Herald  2 star

F this app for wasting 40 minutes searching for a well known hot spring. If the trail is listed in the map, you should be able to search it. Waste of time app if you are using it to easily find trailheads. Horrible lat/lon "search"


Privacy Concern  Idiza  3 star

I've had this app for years like many other reviewers and I've always really liked it. For walking, for hiking, for biking. What I do not like is the location services setting. You have to allow the app to access your location always or never. I do not like apps that track your location even when you are not using the app. Most apps have the option to allow location sharing "when using the app" which seems much more respectful of the users privacy. As a result of the MotionX GPS settings I use this app a lot less then I used to because every time I'm not using it I shut down location sharing in the privacy settings which I then have to re-enable when I do want to use the app. If this one feature were changed I'd definitely rate the app 5 stars.


Nice Design  BurtStrom  4 star

Testing soon. Good support request response.

Great for equestrian trail riding too!  Bob retired  5 star

I've used this great tool for scouting out a trail for future rides and it makes it great to save the route. Thanks to those folks for creating it!!


MotionX review  Jarhead2146  5 star

I've used this app all over the world and it's great. I've used it in the States, Japan, and Australia and it doesn't let me down.


so close to great but flawed. NO UPDATES  kurtpr  1 star

So close to great but so flawed. and now no longer updated. ARRR! Full screen has never worked. Not in any version. Always leaves menu bar on top thus not full screen. No info screen. Still lags behind Etrex -technology from 10 years ago. Could be the best app.


Great app  Gordo66  5 star

I've been using this app for years. Works great, no complaints.


Apple Watch app not functional  Oldestguyalive  2 star

Do not buy this app expecting the (advertised) Apple Watch app to work. It is an "undocumented feature" that the watch app will only work with iOS 9 NOT iOS 10. Would have been nice to know that before wasting $2 now you all know.


No longer works on Apple Watch  TomLafr  1 star

Great app, but no longer works on the Apple Watch. Kindly fix. Thanks!


Great running & walking app  Marcozandrini  5 star

Love the automatic pause feature. Basically, the app stops updating when I stop to cross a road.

5 stars  spyder woman  5 star

Easy to use. Essential to not get lost.


Requires GPS when not using  rabcyr  1 star

Thus app requires GPS even when not using it. That not only bad for the battery, but bad for security. I don't want an app that can track me at all times in the background.


Great app  Jill368  5 star

I use this all the time to track hiking and wheeling outings. Lots of great features.
