LeadNav GPS Customer Service, Editor Notes:

Minor Bug fixes - Stopped app from crashing when running cellular "on grid" tracking when in areas with weak to no cell service - Minor description and text updates - Made the Merging Route stacking bars brighter in the MENU list This is a minor update as some of our users get ready for the Baja 1000 desert race. MapBox Satellite will be getting phased out so we recommend switching over to using ESRI World Imagery instead or a custom map URL of your choosing Thank you and please give us a review!

LeadNav GPS Comments & Reviews

TransferWise 💸

Enjoy high maximum transfers into more than 20 currencies while saving up to 90% over local banks! The cheap, fast way to send money abroad. Free transfer up to 500 USD!

- Great app, slightly outdated UI

This app is well made. Easy to use and good for offline navigating. I use it when going off roaring or traveling outside the US. I find the buttons on screen to be somewhat clunky and instructive. It would be great if you could tap on the map and hide unnecessary things. A minor inconvenience.

- Throw that old Lowrance away

This app has completely changed how I plan my off road adventures. I used it for a 2500 mile Baja adventure, and was able to create daily routes from stop to stop. I do a lot of off roading in the Western US and pre plan my routes with this app. There is a learning curve, but they have great videos on their website to help. I gladly upgraded to the pro version and the $120 per year is a spit in the bucket for the function/features you receive. I raced in several Baja 1K’s and NORRA M1k. I fought with lowrance god units every time. Using an IPad is so much better, and there are SO many more features with LeadNav.

- Awesome!!

I’ve used this app for well over a year for many things. Yes mapping things out can take some time, but for me that’s not an issue. Off road courses, and rescue plans and options, the fact i can coordinate with other units using this app and be able to see them as well is great. Being able to leave notes on destination or warming/ caution markers is awesome. All around love the app as well as my team loves to use it as well. I work rescue from a busy metro city all the way out to the middle of no where and this app had never left me not knowing where I’m going.

- Poor execution of a good idea

Trying to map out the desert for offline use is a grueling process. Takes a $20 per year in-app purchase if you want satellite imagery. Zooming in beyond your pre-loaded resolution will result in the map rendering itself blank. Marked trails are not able to be overlaid onto the satellite map. Even pre-loading non-satellite maps to show marked routes requires the same process as the satellite maps and has the same issue of zoom/resolution blank rendering. Would require hours of work to preload a large area. I'm sure it's a great app for racers with detailed, planned routes who pay the $150 per year. It's not a good app for weekend warriors / exploring unless you are willing to pay extra and spend hours pre-loading your planned area in small increments.

- Quick review

If you’re looking for backcountry application that uses tiles to zoom in and out this application will do that but very poorly better intended for racing preloaded maps and destination or Propack will get you what you need For us outdoorsman and we can avengers probably not the best app for us be sure to read all reviews on there forum You still have to import your own maps leadnav does not come with maps purchase the application for $20 then purchased the advanced subscription for an additional $30 not extremely impressed but I’m out 50 bucks might as well make use of it

- Amazing tool.

Use this on my motorcycle for desert rides and races. Having the ability to navigate and plan routes is not unique to this app. But the simplicity of planning routes is, and the voice navigation into my helmet is a game changer! There are some quirks and bugs here and there, but overall and amazing tool, and well worth the cost for the benefit it provides.

- Not for the casual off-roader anymore

Used to be a great app. I have used it for many years. Now, in order for it to be useful offline, you have to purchase their “pro-pack” for an additional $250/year in order to be able to import MBTile maps that you used to be able to do for free. It seems they have turned their focus to professional race teams and neglect those of us that have been users for years. It’s a shame because it really is a very useful nav app. Guess it’s back to Gaia.

- Wouldn’t Race without this app

I’m a co driver for KOH, BITD, and SCORE and this is the only GPS system I use. Easy to use and mark hazards and VCP’s. If you are racing this is a must use. Plus every time I’ve had a question it get answer pretty quick via Instagram. Thank you keep up the great work!

- Awesome!!

I was up and running w LeadNav right away on my off road race car and mountain bike but once I went through the vid tutorials I was on a new level. We will forever sure be faster through the course and A LOT safer. ....not to mention it’s a fun system to run.

- Racing to Hunting

We use LeadNav on a regular basis for racing and it’s the best on the market. I got drawn for two hunts here in Arizona and decided to use it on my phone for tracking me and marking spots. My guide was blown away. Thanks LeadNav!!

- Pro pack

This app worth every penny. Would never use anything else

- Bait & Switch

I paid the $20 to be able to upload my own GPX maps and now they’ve taken that ability away and want $250 per year to be able to do what I originally paid for. Not cool. I will be seeking a refund.

- Cost has tripled?

Great! The subscription cost has tripled to use the maps I’ve downloaded over the last few years using the app. Very disappointing

- Subscription Too Expensive

To store the good maps on you device you have to spend $70 a year. Used to be $20. Probably not going to continue using.

- Priced to deletion.

I used this app for a few years and really enjoyed utilizing my own uploaded maps, until my subscription expired. Now to use map overlays I need to spend $250, no thanks.

- Glamis

Bought this hoping to use for glamis it appears I have to purchase another map Apparently the first $20 is to get just their software. I’m gonna stick with Avenza maps!!

- It doesn’t work well I need my money back please

I bought the app when I saw the reviews are good in outside the country but am in ksa so it’s not working

- Was working great!

The app was working great, but now I cannot open my tracks! The app shuts down!

- Too much money!

I have been using lead nav for years and loved it. Now they want $250 for off line maps! Nope.

- Features Request

The app is great. Two features are needed: - iCloud Sync - Apple CarPlay Support Thanks. Keep it up :)

- MBTiles no longer supported

Unless you subscribe to pro pack. I used to make my own MBTile files.

- Crap design and worse performance

This is a half baked design in regards to UX. I’m amazed people are touting it as functional.

- The BEST gps app I have used.

Buy it. Pay for the map subscription. Download maps for use offline/no cell service. Know where you are. Build courses. Record tracks. Share via airdrop or email etc. I haven't been happier with an app purchase. Very solid app, with excellent customer service and support. I use this app at least once a month, and recommend it to anyone that is ever off the grid. Such a valuable tool at one tenth the price of a comparable independent handheld GPS unit. I use it both on my iPhone 6+ and iPad Pro. Everyone that starts playing with it on my devices, immediately searches for and purchases it. 5/5 stars. And it will only get better - because the support team actually cares about their user base.

- Excellent off-road navigation!

I originally purchased this app to use as a supplemental GPS to my Lowrance unit in my off-road race buggy. However, after using it a bit, and purchasing one of the subscription packs, I think it will become our primary navigation system for the race car. The interface is easy to use. The app works just as fast, if not faster than the Lowrance unit. Setting waypoints is easy. I would definitely recommend this app to anyone who does serious off road racing/driving, as well as the adventurous amateurs. We can't wait to try this app out during our next race!

- Worth the purchase

Until you have it, it's hard to imagine just how useful it is to have this level of detail and capability in a GPS system. I have a fairly recent GPS device which I've used for quite some time but after using this app I won't be going back. I use this app mainly for boating and love how I can store each track for future use, label hazards and harbor details and always know exactly how to get back to my lucrative fishing spots!

- Best customer service in the business

I am quite surprised. The customer service and dev team are too notch. Unlike most apps they actually care about their fan base and want to make the best app in the market. The app looks good and has a good easy to use feel to it, a must have if your trail running or scouting a new location for off-road. Also has the potential to be quite useful if you work in the oil field. Top notch guys keep up the good work!

- Can't believe I just found this app! Blows everything on the market away!

I have been an outdoorsman for over two decades. I have used many gps devices/apps but the functionality and capabilities of this system far exceeds anything I have every used or seen. Take the time to read the tutorial in detail...once you use this app, you'll never want to use anything else. App has my highest recommendation!!!

- Awesome App!

Have used other GPS apps and this one crushes them all. Works whether you have cell coverage or not. Download every detail of where you're going before you head out and everything is accessible throughout your treck. Day or night...deep woods or open terrain...I'll never have to worry about getting lost or not knowing exactly where I am again!!

- Great App & Awesome Support

Hey, LeadNav is a great app and will be really useful when exploring back-country trails. Purchasing and installing the app were simple and fast. I'm still learning the app, so I don't have a lot to comment on about some of the finer points; but, it seems to be very capable. I also want to comment on the great service and support that I have received directly and through the website forum. I know a lot of my questions were pretty basic. The answers I received were quick and well-explained. I also purchased some hardware through the online store. The parts were in stock and they shipped less than a day after placing my order. Highly recommended app and vendor! Jeff

- Good and reliable

As I said, good and reliable app. Pricey but offers quality. It seems is the only one with voice guidance for tracks, also. Maybe some small improvements - photos for markers, custom names for the downloaded areas, smaller on screen buttons as zoom, speed etc., they take space. Anyway, me happy user. Good luck to developers.

- Awesome offroad nav app!

Overall app is very streamlined and user friendly. With a variety of map types available and the ability to store areas for offline use truly makes this app shine when off the grid. Coordinates can be input in advance for geocaching, waypoints, or any other destination. The user interface works great in offroad conditions!

- Where have you been all my life!!!

This is the app to have if you want to have a off road GPS system in your race vehicle like my wannabe trophy truck. I can easily upload any map file and make my changes on the fly. So easy to set up and follow. Who knew that a $20 app can do the job of a $500+ GPS system. Keep up the great job!!!

- Best Nav app on the market by far

Started using LeadNav after attending a Baja 500 race in Mexico. I'd never heard of it until I noticed 4 of the 6 starting trucks using it as their primary nav system. An amateur racer myself, now I can see why their using it. 100% situational awareness and unmatched system feedback capabilities. Only wish I had found it sooner.

- Jim C

A constant continuous improvement app. These guys are no joke. Every update has applicable real world enhancements. I've used it off shore, hunting in the middle of nowhere, snowmobiling, even crabbing in the backwaters of the Chesapeake...I simply don't go off the grid without it anymore. Buy the $20 version with map cache capability...well worth it.

- Hunter, fisherman, hiker, ATVer

Great for navigating my property. My logging roads are not on any map out there, but now they are in my phone. I can have new hunters come and find their stands every time. There is nothing more annoying then a lost hunter wondering around. Now they get to their stands and take the specified route I want them to take. Thanks!

- Finally an iPhone app for off-road mapping!

This has become a game changer for my buddies when we're riding in a new area. Being able to download maps and use them without cell service offers peace of mind in all of the remote areas we ride.

- Still not sold yet

Still not sure of the app. Looks nice, but three different iPads and I cant plot a route without the app dumping out of it! Also not sure the price and all the add on's are worth it. Bit pricey. Hope this closing on its own gets fixed or I may need to go back to my Google app which has been extremely reliable so far. Can't see this being that good for military use! The stuff we used was way better.

- Last GPS You'll Need!!!

Just did the entire Baja peninsula from Ensenada all the way to cabo using LeadNav for the NORRA 1000 - with a first place finish. This app allowed us to find access roads that we would never been able to find otherwise. Hands down the best GPS and Navigation app on the market!!!

- Favorite App on the App Store

This app is great when it comes to biking, riding dirt bikes and just going off road. Also it is extremely useful to figure out where you are, get back to a place, and to just keep on the trail. Going hiking, I love how it tells you exactly where trails are so you don't stray off.

- Latest Updates

You guys are killing it with the new updates. I can't wait for the off the grid group tracking. I hope it's all released by the upcoming 50th anniversary of the Baja 1000. Keep the updates coming guys.

- BEST $20 You'll EVER spend....!

LeadNav killed it once again at the SEED 9 Rally this year....! Easiest GPS to use, big clear screen to view, maps downloaded for "off grid" use....would have been lost in the dark of a night-rally without it....

- LeadNav Update

Another update that adds some great features. Always listening and improving an already great product is one of Leadnav's strengths. Still quick and easy to use.

- Great Off-Road Nav

Building a route with as many Nav points as you need makes even complex trails easy to navigate. Add in the offline maps and you can navigate even the most remote areas with confidence.

- King of the Hammers 2017!

By far the best investment I've done to my 4800 legends class car! Tech support is outstanding and the app is super easy to use. Pro pack is worth the cost with the in car audio assistant.

- Best navigation app!

We have been using different navigation apps. Leadnav by far is the best. Having the imagery offline makes this app perfect for trips down in Baja and in remote areas.

- Best off road gps app out there

Just buy it. Get the map subscription ($20/year). Works perfectly. Developer is very, very active in the development and support of the app!

- Worked great on the trails!

Used it trail running today linked to my Bluetooth earbuds. Sounded great! Mapped out a new trail using the OCM map (had good coverage of park trails) and cached it before leaving my house. Motivated me to run a little faster!

- Thank you for the update!

Keep up the good work guys! I would love to see more user training videos also. I know I do not fully use the software. Tim

- LeadNav works great

Has the ability to store maps for areas with no cell coverage and import any GPX file. Very good app for off road racing. Highly recommend this app.

- Bye Bye GPS

Awesome app for any outdoorsman, hunter, snowboarder, hiker, etc. The ability to create new nav routes and execute on the fly in the field makes all other GPS devices obsolete. This app is outstanding!

- No metric units

For an app, it is a relatively expensive app and it has in-app purchases to boot. For a pricy app not to have metric units is unacceptable. I use a free GPS app and it has metric unit and I can download map offline for free as well (I have to pay more money and subscribe for off-line map with this app). I was trying your app because it has markers and voice prompt but I guess I will try to have my GPS app designer to add those features. Also no way to contact the devs of this app through their support option

- Excellent product

Have used this for racing the BAJA 1000, And king of the Hammers... offers amazing prerunning and mapping options. LeadNav also offers a virtually indestructible case for the iPad and antenna.

- Killer app!

Totally customizable maps, this is perfect for offroading and has awesome voice cues that keep me hands free and let me pre-run my routes easily.

- Misleading

I don't doubt this app could be great if your willing to pay the additional $149 subscription fee and or other additional fees. It's basically Google earth all the tools and features they show are unavailable unless you pay additional fees. The add is misleading. The app is useless without the subscription. I want a refund ?

- Simply the best

We use LeadNav exclusively for all our route development and durability work with many vehicle manufacturer durability tracking.

- Best GPS app on the market

I really love the new location tracking feature!

- Wow! Amazing!

Best mapping/gps app I've ever used. I went with the full pro pac and am using my Stand alone gps only for backup. Looks fantastic on iPad!

- Awesome app

This app is amazing. Would definitely recommend buying it! Worth every penny and then some

- Thumbs up

The new larger text for waypoints is great for easier viewing at speed!

- Love this app!

LeadNav is by far my favorite app I own! The app it self is laid out perfect, easy to use! Any off enthusiast out there have to get this app!

- Low resolution don't buy this

This is the lowest resolution map I've ever seen in a navigation system. I ride a dirt bike and need to know the names and numbers of the trails in order to navigate. There is no way to contact customer service. The print on the online manual is so small that you need a microscope to read it .

- Awesome!

Great job!! Keeps getting better and better with each update!! Keep it up!!

- Awesome!

Exactly what I needed for Jeep runs and for off road racing! The app has so many great features!

- Good Concept, Poor Implementation

Map box maps are not very good in this app. Needs contours draped over aerial imagery. Buttons for editing need to be on map screen. Needs desktop editing capabilities. Better tutorials, documentation. The voice routing waypoints is very nice. It is a pain for the remainder of UI

- App is fuego

Sold my lowrance after getting the full experience by downloading the propack and got the dual gps puck antenna for an ipad mini and ram mounts leadnav sells

- #1 Offroad Navigation App

If you are looking for that app to give what you need for your offroad adventures then get this app!!

- Great app

Great app used it for pre running in Baja. This app is well needed I put my old fish finder back in my boat.

- Great app

User friendly and off road friendly. Love it

- Great app for biking

Cool app!! Planned a route - threw my phone in my pack - used Bluetooth earbud to navigate my course - worked like a champ.

- Very impressive!

Works incredibly well off roading in the high desert and dirt biking the mountains of Idaho. Best off road Nav app I have ever seen.

- Great app and great support

Had a question and it was quickly answered.

- Best GPS app I have used for trails/off roading!

The GPS is Killer...best off-roading application out there!

- Great app for navigation!!

Used it camping and boating with great success!

- So cool

Love it

- LeadNav Leading the way!

I'm super excited for the future of GPS and the next level LeadNav is taking it to. Gone are the days of bulky GPS units with limited functionality. With the ability to use MBTiles for offline use and load .gpx files (like Baja 1000 course files) combined with LeadNavs upcoming prerunning feature, this will be the ultimate setup for prerunning for races, recording your trail adventures or finding your way back home. The ability to set audible waypoints is awesome too.as a photographer, I'll be using this to load off-road race courses and plot out the best shooting locations. For fun, I can plot out all the trails in SoCal for Jeep adventures. The game has changed!

- Garbage

$20 is the introductory drug dealer price. $70-250 per year subscription needed if you want to use it as something better than the free Apple Maps app that comes with your phone. Speaking of Apple Maps: at least that’s accurate. In Maps, the location is accurate to the point I can tell what room I’m in... In LeadNav, apparently I’m in a field 5.4 miles away. I want my money back.

- Rip off

Don't waste the $20.00 and go to Google maps-it does more.

- Great app... But...

Seems like a very well thought out app, but its trying to nickel and dime me for every little thing i try to do after the purch. Want to add waypoints? $1.99 additional, want terra maps? $19.99 extra. Just charge me $50 and get it over with! I hate it when people bait me with one price and then everything else is additional. P.i.t.a.
