Great Android App for GPS Maps
03/01/14 at 17:08:54
 
Just wanted to let everyone know that there is an excellent Android App that will display my maps/tracks much much better than any Garmin GPS. It is called BackCountry Navigator (BCN), it cost $9.99. Great for Tablets in SxS's. The link below will take you to a link to download my map files that you install on BCN. It actually uses the GPX tracks. It displays waypoint icons at all levels and their detail is much greater than what shows on a Garmin. Included in the zip file are instructions on where to put the files and how to bring them up.
The file includes the BCN for my Paiute, Moab, WV, and Taylor Park. Most of the guys I know that have SxS's are using them with a 7" Tablet. It will work on a phone or tablet. BCN is also a fully functional GPS. You can cache the maps so you don't need cell service. The screenshots below show some of the various maps with my WV map on top.

Yeah, I've been using BCN since the days of Windows Mobile / handheld devices (pre-smart phone).

Great app that just continues to get better.

Download topo maps directly to your device so you can function without Internet connectivity.

Will this work with Apple products too? I saw that you mentioned using on tablets but it is an Android app.

I hate to appear stupid, but sometimes it can't be helped Grin

BCN does not have an App for Apple.  The Apple guys all use something called MotionX.

Below are some screenshots of Moab and Marysvale so you can see how it looks on a 7" tablet.
