Kelly is right, it would be better for the friend to join the list; but beyond 
that, one of the first things you are presented with when you first use any GPS 
app, is the warning to not rely solely on a GPS device.
Anyone who does so, is asking to get lost or worse.
Perhaps a call to Aira, since they could look at a map of their location and 
get an idea what's around.
The bottom line is GPS accuracy can range from 30 feet to several hundred feet 
depending on the location, weather, and quality of the receiver.
That and the travel skills of the person using it.

Hello, I have a question on GPS Apps.  Using Blind square, or any of the
Apps, I noticed that sometimes the direction will say, 100 feet to your
right or left or whatever it is.  Sometimes the left or right is correct
but, is there a way to know for sure if it is left or right?  If you are
solo, no one is around, it could be a problem to go in the wrong
direction.....I know that is obcious but,  just asking for a friend.  Thank

Google Maps includes bike and hiking trails so it can offer turn by turn
directions on these. Would you be on designated trails or hiking in areas
off trail?

Hi foks,

Is there a good GPS  app for hiking?  I have apps for on the road but
as I’m doing more off road hiking they are not helpful.

What are people using for hiking navigation and GPS info?

Thank you,

Eric Caron
