Works in Airplane Mode

No mobile service or internet is required after initial setup. The app uses your device’s built-in GPS and downloaded topo maps.


Waypoints are plotted on the map, listed in a guide, and plotted on the elevation profile, including junctions, road crossings, landmarks, historical sites, gates/stiles, accommodation, food, and town and resupply points of interest.

Are We There Yet?

The app knows where you are and calculates the trail distance to the next shelter and the next town.

Town Information

Comprehensive guide to towns, villages and other services along the trail, including accommodation, restaurants, pubs, grocers, and campgrounds.

Route Creator Tool

Create your own route with the route creator tool. This is helpful for daily planning or to remember a completed day or section hike.

Elevation Profile

You won’t be surprised by a big climb if you use the elevation profile. Your current location and all waypoints are plotted on the profile.

Offline Maps

Offline map sets include Open Topo Maps (in metres) and Open Street Map maps. Online maps include various styles of Google Maps (Android) or Apple Maps (iOS). Easily toggle among each type of map.


Stay up to date by reading other hikers’ waypoint comments and leave your own comments.

Share Your Location

Share your current location with friends and family via an e-mail or text message that includes a Google Maps link to your position. (Note: e-mail messages and text messages may be created while offline, but will be sent only when internet service is available.)
