Kajuyali's Review of Gps Kit HdReviewed on 11/25/18 12:57 PM
...In this application?. Very expensive for the value received. More than one year and no improvements. It is an acceptable app just for tracking and save the points but nothing else.

I use this app all of the time with my iPhone. I finally got an iPad and upgraded to the GPS Kit HD version, and Google maps terrain hardly works. Most of the time there is areas of black that won't load.

Crashes on loading. Crashes during the middle of a trip. Crashes when you try to pull up an old trip. Uninstalled and reinstalled, same problem.

Tip: caching maps doesn't work in landscape mode. Make sure to flip your iPad to portrait mode for it to work. I live on an 18,000 acre ranch and hike 2 hours a day looking for caves, dinosaur tracks, and bones. The main problem I had was keeping track of all the places I've hiked, as well as the locations of discoveries made. 18k acres is a 24+ mile perimeter! GPS kit has solved this problem!!! The best part is that the gps works without cell coverage and that I'm able to view maps, real time tracks, and previous track history without any type of internet or phone reception. This is all shown using google satellite along with the property boundary. This app is 100x better than any garmin product such as the Felix and Monterra. Garmin is great for recording tracks, but unfortunately their maps, resolution, and screen size make it close to impossible to view outside of a computer loaded with their base camp software. I need to know where I'm at and where I've been in the field not on my computer! The only complaint that I have is that there is no option for different waypoint/ icon images, garmin even has this. The maps tend to get confusing with dozens of waypoints all looking the same. You don't know if it's a house, cave, waterfall, etc. It would also be nice if there was a way to resize waypoints as they can quickly engulf the map. I've also tried mapmyhike which doesn't offer or do anything I need for my exploring needs. I highly recommend gps kit!

I bought this app about two years ago while looking for something simple to store POI and images on my trips. Currently using it ons wifi iPad 1 with a Bad Elf attachment for GPS. Tracking and data collection features work great (elevation change, speed, time moving vs stopping, etc). If I had any complaints it would be that only one picture can be attached per waypoint (an album option would be nice) and there does not seem to be a way to reorganize trips if you happen to accidentally star a new trip. Customer support IS sluggish but they do eventually respond. 4 weeks later. Overall not a bad app for the money.

The map resolution is poor and fuzzy, even the google maps that are crystal clear on other apps at same zoom level.

I don't know how many updates have gone by since this was a great app, but at one time it was the best app of its kind on the app store. What happened guys? The terrain map (as complained about by many other reviews) is all black on my iPad mini, until I read a few of these reviews I thought it was supposed to be that way, as if it were a really bad new addition. Now I see that its simply not working how its supposed to. Is there a bug fix in the works?

Wasn't happy with it at all. Didn't even have good topo maps. I had gotten the free Cabela's app it had way better features. I wish you could return apps if you did it with in a certain time. This is by far the most I ever spent on an app and regret it.

This was the first I used an app like this, it's very powerful, I like that you can download tracks from the Internet and integrate them into your downloaded map set. I would recommend this for anyone that likes to stay outdoors.
