  • Roam Bike Phone Mount

    By Saint Roman
    Absolute best bike mount, heavy duty easy to install and most importantly holds my iPhone in place while I ride anywhere.
  • Unusable

    By z fisher
    Used Neotreks for years. This year I'm out in Montana for some hiking and the most important function, tracking location, doesn't work. This app has clearly been abandoned by its owner.
  • Subscription renewal nightmare poor customer service

    By Hates walkingspree app
    My subscription renewed, but all of the features were gone. Emailed them, they told me to sign out, then sign back in. I did and it still didn't work. Emailed them and told them this and the rep told me my subscription moved to ONX HUNT and to just down load the HUNT app as it's the same and go about my day. Unreal! FIX IT!!!
  • Not a hiking app

    By Cairn Rock
    This app might have been worth it 10 years ago but lacks functionality, UX, usability of many of the basics of hiking apps, much better choices for free offline maps/GPS, simply google top outdoor apps. 2 stars because they do allow you to do a 7 day free trial.
  • Bet app i have

    By Bigsky4me
    This is the best app i have. I use this for hunting, metal detecting, research, etc.. The support is excellent. They always help quickly and have resolved every question I've had.
  • Horrible

    By TopoGenius
    Used Neotreks for a while then they merged. Tried to use the maps I downloaded offline this past weekend and they wouldn't even load. Do not download! Awful.
  • Cool idea, monthly subscription just too steep

    By Austin2u
    This is a cool idea for an app. I think it's great, I hike, camp, and off road. But I would not use this nearly enough to justify a $10-$20 subscription fee. I would not use it as much or as frequent as I do my Netflix or Hulu accounts, so the fee is too high; I'm uninstalling. If the fees where something $4 or less I'd pay.
  • Not impressed at all!

    By Jncfix
    I got forced to use this after NeoTrex was no longer supported. I use this for hunting, tracking and hikng. It does not even come close to the old NeoTrex as far as zoomability with contours, images and the ease of way points. The ease of use is quite a bit harder than I expected for some one being computer literate.
  • Great Maps

    By Golddragon214
    I opted to use ROAM to navigate a recent hike. I was pleased with the available maps and graphics I could use to find things like springs for water and camp sites. I never had any issues even in heavy canopy.
  • Not Reliable - Only Worked Once in 3 Months

    By G-Jenn
    Back in May I receive a free year subscription from Cairn. Was unable to get the app to work until last week (on August 3rd). Initially, it would crash after a minute of being open, sometimes it would only load a gray screen then close. Went to use the app this morning and it said my free *week* trial expired, but I never received or signed up for a free trial as I had a full subscription which would not work. I wrote a message in May and received no response from their support. I wrote a second with this additional issue today and they have since fixed the app to run under my username, but have not comped me the 3 months that this application was not functioning at all. The only reply was, 'Sorry you got that message, we see you have a year membership.' Short of them comp-ing the three nonfunctional months plus extra for my aggravation, I won't be purchasing this app after and I'm glad I got a free year trial to see the issues. It's a great overall GPS mapping system, but very bug prone, crashes and is unreliable - plus you're paying money for the service which may or may not work. If it worked like it did the ONE time in the last THREE months, I would happily give 5 stars... Unfortunately, it has not worked properly since I signed up.
