App Reviews

  • Saved my lost self in Iceland.

    By Bo6384
    I use this app to pair with my watch and track distance/altitude. I do long distance primitive backpacking and happened to find myself caught in a complete white out, blown off track, and lost at the top of a glacier in Iceland while doing the Laugavegur Trek to Skógar... Near tears, and with frozen fingers, I was able to use the iPhone app to show me the correct vector to the trail and eventually a hut that allowed me to dry out and warm up for the night before continuing off the glacier. This app saved my life truly.
  • No compass headings given!

    By Luvtn
    There are no compass headings given. It is difficult to edit a plot or remove it. No wonder I don’t use it much.
  • Not impressed

    By mvneufeld
    I bought this app two days ago, excited to use it with my new Apple Watch. I also bought the USA USGS topo map for $20. My account shows that I’ve been charged for USA topo map, but it doesn’t appear in the app on my phone. I’d try it on my iPad, but the app won’t even open - it immediately crashes, even after deleting and reinstalling. The $20 map doesn’t appear in my account on the ViewRanger website either. It’s just about impossible to contact ViewRanger, and their support is pretty much nonexistent. I am not happy, to say the least.
  • Good tool for tracking bike rides

    By Ballou778
    Excellent tool for bike riders wanting to track time and distance, and preserve mapped route. Great for hikes too.
  • Worthless App

    By Hugusdamoos
    1. App can't find any locations. You search for an address, and a message pop-up reads "Location not found!" 2. I can't find the mountain peak identifier anywhere within this app. 3. User interface extremely unfriendly and confusing. 4. You have to click through three pages of BS offers before you can even get into the app. 5. Moreover, my rule of thumb for apps is if I can't figure them out in 10 minutes, they're history. Not even close in this case. 6. Thank goodness I didn't pay for this jive app. Deleted.
  • Not user friendly.

    By Wishicouldfindanicknamenotused
    Used to be good no no maps can be used. I don’t want an account.
  • The app seems cool but I can’t really use it

    By Katnip17
    I bought this app because it came up in the App Store when I searched “hiking in Iceland” but it does not have any Iceland maps so it’s useless for what I wanted it for
  • Apple Watch

    By A.WaiWaiole
    Have tried using this app several times with my Apple Watch and I continuously get the message “unable to connect to iPhone. To record a track, keep your phone on you. I have my phone in the same hand. Apparently my watch and phone cannot find each other.
  • Great app!

    By 78rn
    I have only used the app once on a 3-day hike in unfamiliar woods so I am SURE that I didn’t use this app to its full capacity. It worked seamlessly with my Apple Watch 3. I would remind you to turn off WiFi and cellular, it sounds obvious but I forgot WiFi on my watch and it died in 1 day. I look forward to trying this out again.
  • GPS Compatible

    Love the ability to import and export .gpx files.
