As a long time Biological Field Technician I have nothing but good things to say about this app. I use it daily in the rugged and remote terrain in Hawaii. I have ditched my clunky Garmin handheld unit and can run tracks and take photo waypoints for my work all day long. I’m freed up from needing a PC to transfer data and I can now deliver info straight from the field via text msg or email. Loading external maps and data that have been emailed to me is a cinch. I use GPS Tracks to inspect conservation fences, track invasive species control and search for endangered plants as well as field navigation. I have even used it while flying to locate helicopter landing zones. The app doesn’t have a huge impact on my iPhone 8 battery life. So far it has performed very well when offline/No Service which is imperative in the Hawaiian backcountry. Although I am concerned about using it in a dense forest canopy, perhaps an accessory antenna may help. Love the mapping subscription and benefit highly from the ESRI contour map. Usability is easy to learn and I have gotten a number of coworkers to use the app on their phones.
I reviewed several GPS apps and bought too many useless ones before I found this one. Whatever your application, this is your app. On road or most especially off. It is feature rich and takes a little time to learn all it can do but it's worth every moment and penny. We use it for planning and tracking kayaking trips, mostly on local rivers and waterways. You can review, plan, map, and execute your track by land or water anywhere you can bring up on the map with this tool. Satellite or roadmap views. How far it is from bridge A to bridge B on that river? Go to Tracks tab and trace every bend and oxbow and know exact distance before you hit the water. Looks good? Name it and save it and this app will guide you down the track you planned. Ditto for hiking. Need a more detailed map? With a reasonable annual subscription a huge array of professional maps for various applications are available for purchase and can be download for permanent offline access. Driving, hiking, biking, navigating the waterways, this is your guide.
I very much admire and highly recommend this app; it has everything we need and more (but not lots of stuff we don't need). It is frequently updated, and the developer is always working to keep it going strong. I would love to see capability to add video clips of, say, 10 seconds, to waypoints (instead of single photos), and -- most of all -- I would like to have Pro version access higher-resolution satellite imagery. What is gets now is usually not as useful as Google Earth imagery; for the price of the GPS Tracks Pro subscription, imagery should be at least as good as Google Earth. For ease of use and reliability, GPS Tracks is the best of class!
I use this app almost everyday. I always record my hiking trips with it. It's a fast and reliable app for recording tracks. It has a ton of features for a professional but is easy enough to use by a casual user. I had been using it for months before I discovered a lot of the details features it has included. This is one of the best nav app I have used. Easy to import and export tracks. I use it mostly to record my routes and analyze them later but sometimes I pre plan routes and waypoints. The details track stats and playback are a must have. There even are measuring tools included for planning purposes. I love the way it syncs both to my iPad and my Mac. This allows me to record data and analyze it on my Mac. The other day I took it out on an unfamiliar trail and lost my bearings. I used this app to find my way back which was awesome. I will never go out without using this app again. Overall a well done app with great support! Update - The new cloud sync is awesome, very fast and no more issues, well done guys!
I love some solutions what I found in this app and I’m happy to support development but unfortunately I must stay with MotionX-GPS and here is why. 1. There is no Google Maps (check maps on MotionX-GPS and compare how many free maps is there) 2. One of most popular formats “D” is missing 3. I couldn’t find solution how to add coordinates in D format and start navigation towards that point using compass mode. 4. My current location - should be marked as “my current location” to be obvious 5. There is confusion with distance in compass mode were is total distance dominant over current distance to waypoint and it’s not possible to change this info. 6. Importing maps are recognized as track and waypoints but app is not separating waypoints to waypoints folder. 7. I find some dead end pages where I was forced to restart app to go back to main screen. I would like to check accuracy in the desert but honestly I feel that some of most important things are missing to make this happen. I love lots of solutions offered here but for now I’ll stick to my old app but will keep looking for this interesting app to be upgraded or developed in this crucial things. Keep up a good work!0
