    I'm looking into options for electronic maps for use in the field. I came across GAIA GPS and was wondering if anyone else has used it and, if so, what your reactions were.

    Are there other products that allow topo maps to be loaded onto a smart phone or tablet and taken in the field?

    My brother said I could use my Iphone6S if I downloaded the maps before we leave instead of buying the 650T. There are 5 or 6 options which is the best for a backpack hunt Southern Colorado?

    I recently found the US Topo Maps app. The free version (non-caching) seems good. Anyone use the pro version and have feedback on how the maps saved and functioned without internet access?

    Thanks for the heads-up. I will check it out.

    My friend uses GAIA. Say's it's the greatest thing he's ever used.
