Moved into an area l was completely unfamiliar with surrounded by almost 100,000 acres. I downloaded the appropriate maps and figured out how it worked. And off l went. The trail marker feature was unbelievably accurate. The best part is no data is required!!! This lil beauty stands alone as long as the satellites can cya. You can choose magnetic north or GPS. I use a G pad 5 tablet. I used the free version only. No tutorial so learn b4 ya go and dont rely on just one thing. Really great app!!!

It has several very useful features that I use regularly and they are free so with a paid suscrptuon it will most likely have a allot more 1 example is the trail making it works very good in deep woods to mark and cut single track for up coming races.

I use it for navigation here on the waterways of Jacksonville. Very accurate postioning with excellent agreement of map depths and on-board depth meter readings.

Cha. S. May 17, 2022     

Maps and tracking are accurate. Great for huge areas with multiple parking lots in unfamiliar locations.

Rob. C. May 24, 2022     

So far so good. Polaris puts it all the things you need for off-roading together in a single interface. Well done!!

Mic. R. Mar 12, 2022     

Beautiful graphics & useful for many purposes. Tracked location and course on inland waters, urban streets, etc. Sophisticated navigation tool, but mostly used for orientation and fun.

Ter. S. Apr 7, 2022     

Worked great while hiking today. Stopped when I went onto a different trail but it could have been me bumping it after I checked it and was putting my phone back in my pocket..

This app appears to have all the whistles and bells-- just starting to use it but impressed so far...

Spi. F. Dec 31, 2021     

Excellent app to get raw GPS info out of the phone. It saved me in an emergency when I was asked latitude and longitude over the phone, and the only thing other apps would do was "share location"

WIL. S. May 10, 2022     

This by far the app to ever use. It helped me creat water route for my farm gravity water. Thanks team for the great app

Mik. A. Aug 22, 2020     

I had high hopes for this GPS app. But it failed to deliver. I did a kown 3 mile hike. It was off by 3/4 miles. It showed 2.25 miles. Total time was 45 minutes. App showed 20 minutes. Used it again along side a handheld Garmin GPS. Again, the apps measured distance was about .25 mile per one mile traved. The timer was very inaccurate. The map was accurate, so no worries there if you want to use it as a map guide. But if you want to track time and distance, this app is very inaccurate.

A bit clunky, but has a wealth of features. It’s okay for free, but you can only save 3 routes at a time. Possibly if purchased it unlocks more features. Doesn’t seem to keep a time on your routes which I would have liked and only has elevation and plotting. The good is there are lots of map vectors which is very cool. But, I’m still looking

This is a very good app. I downloaded a vector map for Michigan from within the app. It installed to /Polaris_Navigation/Maps on my internal storage. The map is relatively small so it doesn't take up much space. I tapped the map button in the lower right corner of the main screen, then the Map Manager button on the next screen. Then I tapped View Map after tapping the Michigan map (58.36MB) near the top of the screen under Vector Maps. Turning on Auto Center showed my mapped location very quickly. I turn it off whenever I want to scroll around the map. The app is quite accurate despite my not having a magnetic sensor in my phone. I have to use it to guide me whenever I use Google Maps to map out directions for walking some place in my new neighborhood, as Google Maps tends to be very confusing in tracking my movements and displaying the route directions when I'm on foot rather than an automobile.

Not like a real GPS device. You can record a track (trail) but you cannot navigate a track? Have used it only for hiking so no idea how it works for driving. The waypoints functionality is good, and it's nice to see waypoints and tracks on satellite images. But the basic hiking functionality of following a recorded track seems to be missing.

Ale. L. Dec 17, 2018     

Its very useful when you have no idea where you are, i got kind of lost the other day and this app helped me a lot, also now i can take shortcuts between trails, as i can see where to go. One problem i have is that when i zoom in, there are a lot of black boxes on the map, i have to play with the zoom to see properly, other than that, it tracks me very well

Dav. F. Jul 24, 2020     

I predominantly use the app for driving directions. I also very much like the app. One of its particularly appreciated virtues is the ease with which it will provide directions from a current location to a destination. The one thing that disappoints is the circumstance that I cannot get the voice assist to work even when it is set as unmuted

Chr. K. Oct 4, 2021     

In my opinion, it's the best GPS app out there by far. It's perfect for I use it for. I do a lot of 4x4 and hiking in the back country of Colorado. Nice how you can "waypoint" and record your trails. It seems to me that it would be almost impossible not to find your way out with app. Ease of use is another great commodity of this GPS app. Never hit the back country without it. Fantastic job on its creation and updates guys!! You have a winner here!!

I. A. A. Nov 7, 2020     

I tried the free version First and was disappointed I thought that if I paid for the other version GPS waypoints navigator that it would be better. It isn't. It's still just draws a straight line from one position to the next it does not show the exact Trail at tooth taken. Furthermore in comparison to other products the maps are not as good.

Ric. Z. Apr 4, 2019     

This is a great app , has multiple functions. I really like the ability to get a position even without cell service and the ability to send a position quickly via text when you get a bit of signal. Especially in an emergency situation, which I have tested to provide location in the mountains for EMS response.

Doesn't work... I set a waypoint this weekend on my hunting tree stand. When I returned in the morning, it was incapable of finding the waypoint. It would say it was 260 feet south, then it would say it was 277 feet west, etc. Nothing consistent. When I got near the tree stand (through my physical memory) and was standing within about 60 feet of the stand, but where I could see the stand, it said it was 250 feet in the opposite direction of the stand. That's what I mean by it doesn't work. It points the wrong direction, it points in inconsistent directions (one time east, one time west) and inconsistent distances.

It is easy to use and has good features though I have not used it much. I downloaded the vector map of Zambia but when I tried to open, a different map was opened. What could be the problem?

Rob. H. Apr 26, 2020     

It does a great job of recording your trail so you can get back to your beginning point or any way point in between. It shows your mileage so you know how much ground you have covered It does have ads but they don't show when you are on the trail. Overall a pretty good app and it is free of charge

ליא. ג. ה. Apr 23, 2022     

Easy to use and gives great value. Oftenly use for our weekly sailing.

T.v. v. Mar 26, 2022     

Nice app... We are using this app for fishing. I'm fisherman. I know little more English only. This app is giving salary. But we save 6 number only .

Lar. C. Mar 10, 2020     

Complete confusion. When I upgraded the upgrade app had a different name so I kept going back to the original app with ads. Nowhere was I advised of the new app name. Free version did ask if I wanted to transfer my trails to this new app with another name. Finally figured out this was the upgrade and not someone trying to hijack my computer. I admit, I mostly use IOS on iPads and never see this type of upgrade. All said, free version was buggy and locked up on each page. Paid version seems ok.

Pet. S. Sep 6, 2021     

I'm excited by the seeming potential of the app. But tell me, when I am viewing a particular location (not necessarily exactly where I am) and I switch map types, instead of the map maintaining its then current location, it switches to somewhere in the US - I live in Africa, so I have then to drag my way across the world and find the location I was viewing. Can you not make the user-selected location the default position unless expressly changed by the user?

R. G. O. 2. Mar 6, 2022     

Trying to find the differences between this one and the other called 'GPS WAYPOINTS NAVIGATOR'. They seem to be the same app with different names and icons.

Dav. C. Sep 15, 2019     

Better than expected for a free app! I recorded a hike and waypoints, with pics, on the 1st try. Upgraded for day 2. Just imported my trails to Google Earth on my PC. Love it! Works as expected, except: I changed colors for my 2nd recorded trail (red and green) but they both display blue in GE Pro. I can't select the trail to modify properties in GE.

Please put a space in the middle of the 10 digits you show to represent the UK OS co-ordinate so that I can see where the Easting ends and the Northing begins. You might want to consider showing fewer digits too. On a paper map 3 will do. 5 digits is an accuracy of 1 metre. 3 metres or so is the best that most GPS hardware can manage. Ads are full screen, intrusive and seem to encourage the installation of further apps. I nearly got caught out by a very dodgy looking one.

Day. F. Mar 26, 2022     

It has a lot of useful tools that other apps charge for. What I can say is really good job.
