Problems after latest update, app opens with black screen and freezes phone, same with 2 phones and tablet. Was a great app, now unusable, rolled back to previous version until fixed.

Z70%

I have been using this for some weeks. You download the IGN hiking maps you need for the region you are hiking, cycling etc. Then you can use them off line. Choose your region then select the hike you want from the many uploaded. Start your hike and your progress is tracked. Go off course and you are warned. Tech support is prompt and helpful in French and English.

Une belle (R)évolution dans la domaine des cartes "embarquées". L'appli fonctionne très bien & j'ai hâte de gagner une montre connectée Android Wear...Lol...Pour moi, c'est l'avenir, je me suis toujours servi d'un GPS de poignet depuis 05/2008 et c'est bien plus pratique que de sortir un le GSM surtout lorsque l'on marche avec des bâtons dans un relief accidenté.J'ai actuellement une Samsung Gear couplée avec une autre appli (pas aussi efficace), attention à la durée de la batterie... Je reçois les notifications SityTrail sur la montre (erreurs de parcours)... Ce qu'il y a de bien surtout, c'est la possibilité de tracer ses parcours sur le site web... Un petit truc à prévoir ? La possibilité de créer des dossiers pour ranger ses randos sur le site web

C'est un outil excellent. Je suis sur le chemin d'assise (gr13) et c'est un excellent compagnon!! Seul bémol est l'interface web pour tracer sa route qui est franchement lent et dépassé. Mais bon ca fonctionne avec une bonne tasse de thé. N'oubliez pas qu'en cours de marche vous bénéficiez de tous le potentiel des cartes ign et c'est pas rien compré aux autres. Je vous dirai plus détail d'ici peu. @+ benoit.

Have only used it for walking so far and it is pretty good. It is the only software I have found that uses proper IGN maps and at an affordable price.

I started using this back when it was called Geolives and the maps were good and accurate. Since the name change, I've had some issues with the maps not zooming properly or not showing all the trails you can see on the paper IGN maps. I'm hoping for some newer updates soon that will help resolve some of the mapping issues.

I've used these maps on a few trips to France, and found them excellent. The 1 25000 maps have allowed me to use some very minor roads and chemins. All works reliably.

Does what needs to, however downloading maps is slow.

Laid et non fonctionnel... je n'utilise presque plus jamais cette appli, sauf en cas d'urgence. Le geoportail mobile supplante une large partie les fonctions... ah oui et bloquer la position GPS au centre sur la carte est d'un chiant : Pour regarder autour de soi on est obligé de désactiver le GPS !! Obligation de défiler tout le cycle des cartes pour passer du scan au cadastre... développement lamentable !

When this used to be called Geolives, although the mapping component worked brilliantly with IGN maps, the whole subscription and account management service was very confusing and it wasn't clear which company you were dealing with and the website was quite muddled up and inconsistent. Unfortunately this has recently got worse now that the product appears to have changed its name to 'SityTrail' (even though it's primarily for use outside of cities ?!) and the Android App account doesn't mirror the web based account. There doesn't appear to be any configuration of this App. As soon as it opens it's stating that I have no subscription despite me having paid for one via the phone App (my PayPal account confirms that I've paid GeoLives !). Not surprisingly if I view my account via the web it doesn't recognise that I've made payment either. Overall, this is a bit of a mess, which is a shame as the Geoportail service is class leading and turns a decent phone like an S2 into a very useable sports GPS device. I might update this message if the developers improve things a bit - they can start by telling me where my Paypal payment has gone !

by B####:

For 15€/year I'm surprised that Geolives doesn't have a reliable content delivery system. I struggled with slow speeds - downloading 81Mb (15km offline maps) took between 1-1.5 hours - average download speed between multiple tries is about 15KB/s!!!! Even scrolling around on the map takes about 10 seconds for the few visible tiles to be loaded. Normally the above would be OK if left to run overnight; however they have an annoying alarm that keeps ringing once the download is done... woke everyone up!

Fantastic tool for accessing French ign walking maps. Easy to use. Helpful website in French.

N70%
by N####:

Latest version much improved over previous versions. Tracking tends to randomly jump tens of kilometer and back, but apart from this very usable app.

W70%
by W####:

Seems to be a good start, now needs finishing. Maps don't rotate, you get a beam on the map, showing your direction. Zooming in shows some weird map, not the IGN map... Google does better! Shame... Could be much better. Oh, and it crashes a lot on HTC X One

Installed app then subscribed for IGN maps for a month (something like €5). Spent a bit of time downloading maps of relevant bits of France, at range of scales, then used them when on holiday. Well worth the time and effort.
