Powerful, but unintuitive I've been using Pathaway since my Treo days, and it's still the only app that lets me upload my own maps. The interface is quite clunky, but more usable on my larger Galaxy S4 screen than my old Palm and Nokia screens. I keep tapping the wrong buttons even though I've been using its many iterations for over 7 years. The Windows map editor has changed little since 2007 but still gets the job done.
