  • Great tool

    By ijok first
    This is a great and helpful tool. Now work on cell phone service in these remote spots
  • Decent

    By theo compadre
    Sometimes the gps can find me sometimes not, I have a backup app just in case I’m not sure I can trust Guthooks, it’s not perfect but better than most

    First time using, section hiked New York and New Jersey. Good about 95% of the time. Sometimes distances off by about tenth of mile but for a non-tech guy it’s impressive .
  • Love it

    By Politjfd
    Guthooks only gets better and served me great on the PCT. Look forward to using it on my next hikes
  • Reliable guide.

    Don’t leave home without it. So useful I sent my maps home and relied solely on Guthook during my month on the Appalachian Trail.
  • Clunky User Interface. Good info

    By Yoshi TX
    It has become kind of a de facto source for information so many many people post. But the user interface is just atrocious trying to figure out how things work for the first time
  • Seems to be missing a lot of info that is contained in other guides

    By Onsomehill
    After using this for a while on the AT, it’s become apparent that there is a lot of data out there on the trails and towns that is not contained in this app. I’m not sure where the app pulls data from, but it’s lacking in that department. Other guides seem to list more, and more current, data about available resources, like hostiles, restaurants, stores, etc. on the trail. And while the maps are nice, there are important waypoints that are just not listed. However they exist in other guides. The app itself seems to run fine for the most part. I seem to experience an issue where the GPS stays enabled even though I turn it off in the app. The app shows the GPS off, but as soon as I move to the home screen (app in background) the little blue bubble in the upper left corner continues to indicate enabled. The only way to get it to stop is to force close the app.
  • Guthook Review

    By unodawg
    Awesome on Southern Section of PCT. Thank you.
  • This is my go to app

    By Expat2017
    I love this app and I‘ve used it for years. My only problem is trying to stop myself from checking it constantly. There is so much information about the trails and it seems like it is updated regularly. I only have a few suggestions if they are possible. 1) SOS button for if you get into trouble or if there is an emergency. 2) Add more trails from around the world. I use Komoot in Europe, but would use Guthook if it were an option.
