What GPS Devices, Software or Apps Do You Use/Like? Our crew is trying to map out as many of our treks as we can. We have a shared Google Earth "view" (saved as an ever-growing KML file) which we add to as we go. It was started as a project by the Historian to map our unit's history of adventures. They wanted to one day be able to look back and see all the places they've been. So a few questions our group is grappling with: What device(s) do you use (e.g., GPS unit, phone, old-school compass and map, etc)? What software do you like? Why?We use Google Earth because of the ability to add free USGS 1:24k maps, mark waypoints and treks and to output to various formats. What apps do you like and why?We use ViewRanger. It is cross platform, saves in to the cloud, can output to various formats, can share locations (buddy icons), import free USGS maps and other cool features. Any other things you'd add to the list? What do you like best?
