Do not buy. If I could rate 0, I would. It just doesn't work at all and and the fact they charge for this makes it an insult. I work in the Swiss alps so I downloaded it give my guests extra information about their surrounding but it was a total waste of money and I cannot get a refund. Stay well clear.

Disappointed The app had such nice ratings and i was very excited to test it as i go often for hiking. But the handling is not very pleasant often i cannot recognise the mountains in front of my thought the app... The shapes look kind of not authentic to what i see in front of me.. I hoped that its better for that price.. I still hope that it gets better, but there was no update for the last couple of months..

Not worth the money Leaks, even with GPS enabled. You turn around but the peaks won't update.
