I've looked at a few others that either had limited features or were expensive. A few days ago I found the MotionX-GPS App. It is designed for hikers, bikers, boaters, geocachers, and the like, but meets the needs of hunters very well. The price point is reasonable at $2.99.
Before we get started with this review I want to make clear that no one paid me to do this review. I purchased the App with my own money and get no commission for Apps purchased from links from this site. I have no connections with the company that made MotionX-GPS. There, all done!
|The Tracks are mostly reliable|
MotionX-GPS has all of the features of any map for your iPhone. It shows your position, allows you to record tracks, and save waypoints. These things have all been done before and are quite boring. Adding waypoints is easy . It gives you the option to pause and resume tracks, which is nice. The tracks are relatively accurate. When the GPS looses signal it tends to bounce the track line around a little. At one point it said I hiked through a lake.
|Adding a waypoint is easy|
|Notice the nice big buttons|
|If you look closely you will notice lots of features I did not mention.|
|Why a compass when you have GPS?|
Try navigating in a thick swamp where you can only see
ten feet each direction and you will see why!
|Lots of options to stay connected.|
As of right now, this is the best GPS App I have found. It is easy to use, reliable, efficient, and incorporates some wonderful safety features. It turns the iPhone into a GPS capable of handling some serious hunting and scouting.
