Green Tracks Gaia GPS AllTrails Komoot
  1. Green Tracks - hiking partner
    The Gaia GPS and Green Tracks apps have the best topographic maps. The A-GPS Tracker app does not support a topographic map. Only the Green Tracks app has free offline maps. Below we made a screenshot of our GPS track from Triglav hike rendered in each app so that you can assess the quality of maps yourself. We used a topographic map, if the app could provide it.

  2. Trail maps for all your adventures
    The AllTrails hiking app has a good interface and comes with road, satellite and topographic map like the Gaia GPS app mentioned above. However, the AllTrails app provides you with much less information about your hike than the Gaia GPS app and has a less sophisticated topographic map. Besides from that, it is relatively easy to use and even comes with preloaded trails which will unfortunately only work if you are connected to the internet. The app also keeps track of your activities and shows you how much you hiked each month. Getting GPS tracks to the app was quite a hassle – definitely more complicated than with the other hiking apps in this selection. Here is a guide on how to use GPS tracks with the app. We also didn’t figure out how to export GPS tracks from the app.

  3. Explore over 50,000 trails, reviews, and photos. Share them…
    Last year I subscribed and this year I’m trying Gaia. I like how Alltrails seems to make it easier to locate trails. But I do like how easy it is to create a trail/path with Gaia. I need a PC to create one on Alltrails. As you can see there are things I like about both. Still figuring out my preference. If I could create paths on all platforms for Alltrails I’d probably lean more toward Alltrails. Very good app. Worth downloading

    The Komoot app wins when it comes to graphic design and interface. The app is very easy to use and comes with several very useful features. One such feature is turn-by-turn voice navigation – yes, even on hiking trails! Furthermore, the app also calculates the optimal route to your destination for you; if you tap on a point on the map, the app will create you the optimal route to that point. The Komoot app also keeps track of your activities and allows you to connect with other hikers around the world. A letdown is that the app only comes with a topographic map which can’t be zoomed in adequately. We would thus like to see that more types of maps were available. Besides from that, the Komoot app is a great option for hikers, trekkers and backpackers. It also allows you to easily import a GPS track via the Komoot website.

    A-GPS Tracker

    This product hasn't been added to SaaSHub yet
    The A-GPS Tracker hiking app seemed like a less sophisticated version of the Green Tracks app. The app is thus easy to use and allows you to import GPS tracks without a hassle – you just transfer them to your smartphone and open them with the app. However, the A-GPS Tracker app does unfortunately not support topographic maps and we were also a bit disappointed with the tracking accuracy (see the image on the right). It also shows less information about your hike than the other apps in this review. Nevertheless, it is a good option for those who want a simple and lightweight navigation app for their trips.
