TIPS FOR MAPPING ROUTES • For longer routes, try zooming in and mapping your route in multiple segments. • Tap and hold the map to quickly route between waypoints and POIs. • Did Footpath snap to the wrong roads? Trace over the incorrect segment to edit, or use the eraser tool. • Turn off snap to roads (magnet icon) and zoom in to manually trace the map. (Try switching to a satellite layer). • Displaying maps and continuously running GPS in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Navigate without maps or with the screen off for all day battery life. CONTACT US We've got a lot planned for Footpath.

  • Nicely done.

    By Abdullah Nabeel
    Nice interface. Easy and practical. A well made product.
  • Excellent

    By fox@1
    Finally a way to measure shorter walks in order to track exercise. Thank you.
  • Fantastic

    By kooljam
    This app is fantastic. I am one who is horrible at memorizing specific directions. And this is the only app that allowed me to draw out my own specific route on a GPS for me to drive to get to where I need to go on longer routes. I do not like that I have to pay for the full version to get voice directions however, it is worth it for me. And I do wish you could change the voice of the person speaking. Thank you very much for this awesome app.
  • LOVE!

    By Kyle&Marg
    I’ve been searching for an app like this for a while. Perfect for planning and mapping out my runs ahead of time. So easy to use on my phone!
  • Decent app, but the first screen is really bad

    By SunShineFighters
    Why do I see a ‘get started’ button to start? Horrible decision. Why not just start me in the app?
  • Doesn’t work well with Apple Watch

    By WO-DOG
    Very unstable using with Apple Watch. Not worth it.
  • Easy way to pick a route with clear mileage

    By Moon River Runner
    I have loved this app. For 42 years I have been running where ever I am. This app allows me to pick a route and know the mileage. When recovering from injury it allows me to carefully increase distance. I have used this app for walking in strange places like Mumbai India. Great for a traveling runner! Tom Ruffle MD
  • Trail

    By Mudjacks07
    I can finally find bike trails around the world
  • Simple, great route planning for runners

    By OhioToffee
    This is such a solid app, with exactly what you need for to plan runs, bike rides, hikes—and no unnecessary features to weigh things down. Highly recommended.
  • Does it’s job once you figure it out...

    By Sskgmac
    Not particularly intuitive or good directions, but once you figure it out, it’s good for figuring distance of off road routes.
