  1. Will the program estimate miles hiked between 2 points on map with out gps tracking on?

    • I hadn’t put that function in yet, but I may give it a shot before I send out the updates. It will definitely be in a future update, if not this one.

  2. This is absolutely fantastic! I just downloaded your app(s) for the PCT (2015) and JMT (2014) earlier this week. Even before this update I was blown away. I cannot wait to use it on trail and provide feedback. Thanks a million for this incredible resource!!

    • Glad to hear you like it! I will certainly look forward to hearing your feedback from using the apps on the trail. Enjoy your hike!

  3. I have always enjoyed the “Distance from trail” feature in the Halfmile app. Really makes it sweet to get back onto trail when you have a few different ways (roads, alt trails, etc) to get back to the trail.

    Also, for the ‘Recent Register Entries’, an idea could be to the latlon and determine the nearest registries for present geolocation, so a hiker would not be getting recent entries that might be a couple thousand miles away (ie: sobo getting nobo alerts)

    • Hey John. Right now the register entries only shows entries for the current section of trail you’re looking at (Southern California, or Maine, or The Long Trail, etc), so you wouldn’t be getting notes from too far away from what you’re interested in, regardless. But I do like that idea. I will add it to the to-do list. Not sure I’ll have it ready for the current release, but definitely one that’s not too far out 🙂

  4. Guthook, Thank you for all the hard work.
    Your app is terrific.
    I used your app for the first time last year from Elk Lake to Windriver Rd in Washington. It was terrific. It was the first time I’d hiked the pct alone in 2000 miles and it kept me from being sick and nervous about where I was. A useful planning tool as well.
    I’m on my next section August 13th. I hope you’ll have an update for Android by then.
    See you on the trail,
    Dana Law

    • Thanks Dana! You will definitely have your Android app updates in time for your hike– they should be done by mid-February, so you’ll have plenty of time to see how things have changed.

  5. These updates will be fantastic additions to an already fantastic app. Can’t wait for the Android update. I’m a regular user of your app, hitting sections of the trail at regular intervals. Thanks for all your hard work, loving it!!!
