A lot of info.Great.wildfire.
Superb application. Nice job guys.
Awesome app. My hand held gps unit is totally obsolete after installing this app.
Only thing that that could improve this app for me is one decimal place in gps min/sec. Awesome tool though!
I like the app for GPS data. Nice job.
Good start, but many features needed to make this a useful gps app, especially tracks. Records only straight line distance at present.
This app is much helping my job activity... AWESOME!!!
This is a well thought out app. It just needs some directions. Can you track distance without waypoints just using your current location? Good app.
All around playtime !¡! ‡(6)¿&¿‡(1)¡!¡
Very well done app. A must try!..
