Pros and cons of GPS Tracks app for iPhone and iPad

GPS Tracks app good for

Very nice app with broad range of functionality. Very friendly and quick support even to the most detailed questions. Thanks David!
I am tornado chaser and like to track my routes. No better app then this for my needs!!!!
My first review said "Only change I would like to see is having the option to change the speed in history from pace in min/km to mph or kmh" And you listened!! Thank you. Pretty much perfect now!
I use it to track my RC plane by putting my phone with the payload, and it gives me great accurate information. Live the map tracking and speed indicators. Overall great app!
I have tried a number of apps for tracking my hikes and using the GPX file for adding position info to my photos and this is by far the best with outstanding customer service. Set for its most accurate it beat my $500 Garmin and with an incredable number of settings to choose from you can customise it to exactly your requrement
Ive only had this app for a couple of weeks but have found it very easy to use and it has already helped me find my parked car. Great app which Im happy to highly recommend!

Some bad moments

I used to be able to type in coordinates and now when I type them in, it just goes to the nearest city.
Enjoyed using it on a nearly 4000 mile trip. But when I try to export the data it fails....
Love that it works out of the box with no subscriptions. Only pay annually if you want advanced maps such as Topo or flight, the base Apple maps are good enough for cycling. Minus one star for a complicated interface, but with all of its features, no idea how to make it easier. It has also stopped recording while on a ride, and no idea why, but this is rare.
I am very disappointed in this app, especially after paying for it. It is unpredictable and unreliable. Ive used free apps that work a lot better than this one. When I finished my route today it said I did 7 miles. Then changed to under 5.
I am active-duty military and use this app every time I go to the field. On at least two occasions this app has significantly proven its value. If youre looking for an app that has MGRS capabilities on the phone and on the Apple Watch then this app is for you. I even provided some suggestions to the developer and he implemented them in this latest release. Excellent customer service and excellent app for real world field/military use.
I love this app because you can download data in multiple formats like csv which are easily uploaded into many different mapping programs that I use including ArcGIS. It is a little annoying that you can only download in lat/long when there is the ability to view projected data in the app with many different datums (which is very nice). In the end, its not a huge deal because I can project in ArcGIS. If I didnt have access to this software it would be a little more troublesome. It is a great app for referencing my quick field notes when Im working on projects. I used to use a TripMate850, but they dont sell them anymore and this app has more features and options anyway. The only limitation is the phone battery or externals that I bring with me for long days in the field.
