Use GPS for hunting a waypoint or geocache, for recording tracks and GPS waypoints on your trip, all the while tracking your quest on topographic maps.

About topo (topographic) maps: Topo maps show terrain through color and contours, and are useful for navigation offroad. Topo maps and GPS can be used for hiking, hunting, kayaking, snowshoeing, & backpacker trails.
The app has many built in map sources and allows you to create your own maps with Mobile Atlas Creator. Built in sources include:
OpenStreetMaps and NASA landsat data worldwide.
OpenCyle Maps are topo maps that show terrain worldwide.
USGS Color Aerial photography.
Topographic Maps of Spain and Italy.
Outdoor maps of Germany and Austria
Topo maps of New Zealand

Here are some of the outdoor GPS activities BackCountry Navigator has been used for:
Hiking both on hiking trails and off trail.
Camping, to find the perfect camping site or the way back to camp.
Hunting trips for hunting wild game in rugged areas, including recon for the hunt.
Bait fishing or fly fishing with a buddy.
Search and Rescue (SAR) with GPS.
Kayak and canoe trips on inland lakes and streams or marine, coastal waters.
Backpacker trips: using topo maps of wilderness areas and national forests to navigate on trails with the GPS.
Snow adventures including snowmobiling, skiing (alpine or cross country) and snowshoeing.

This a great addition to the outdoor gear you bought at Cabelas, REI, or another outdoor store. Your android phone could substitute for a Garmin or Magellan outdoor handheld GPS!

Find your own ways to have fun in the outdoors. Be a maverick by venturing into new territory beyond cell service boundaries. Become a pro at navigation with GPS.

User reviews of BackCountry Nav Topo Maps GPS
Excellent trail and tracking app. Haven't found a better one for Android. Downloading maps for off-network use is simplest I've seen. Customer support is very responsive with ongoing frequent updates as well.

Laggy, not very interactive, has trouble loading maps at times. In no way is this worth $10.

Impressive Was so impressed with this app I upgraded from the 30 free trial after 20 days. Especially love it's off line capabilities and the ability to easily add waypoints. Several times while hiking I have quickly settled disputes about our location using the offline maps, great feature. Use it on my LG 2.2.1 phone & my Nexus 7 (2013) 4.4.3

Difficult UI, unreliable The UI is inefficient and requires a lot of touches and much explanation. Part of the screen needing interaction is hidden by demo nag bar, and the compass is also disabled just to annoy. Map download is clumsy. While downloading maps for initial setup, it broke and would no longer download tiles. Had to delete it all, reinstall the application, and lose all my way points. The maps are good! I hope there's am alternative app out that can use them.
