The description Handy GPS (free) Apk

The perfect companion for your next outdoor adventure. Seek, find, record and return home with Handy GPS. No user account or setup required - just install it, turn on your GPS and go!

This app is a powerful navigation tool designed for outdoors sports like hiking, bushwalking, mountain biking, kayaking, horse trail riding, and geocaching. Its also useful for surveying, geology, mining, archaeology, and forestry applications. Its simple to use and works even in the remotest back country since it doesn't require network connectivity. It allows you to work in UTM or lat/lon coordinates so you can even use it with your paper topographic maps. Waypoints and track logs recorded in the field can be be viewed later in Google Earth.

NOTE: This is a free trial version and is limited to storing only 3 waypoints, and 40 track log points. You can use the trial version for as long as you want, but if you like this app, please install the paid version of "Handy GPS" to get an unlimited version with lots more features. Thanks!

Exactly what I needed. If you need more functions, spend some money.

David Mitchell

Wished it had a widget or something like that but other than that it's a good app. Might buy the full version.

Good work

Free version only stores in 20 way points. This is useless. Why is this app even offered for free?

Chris T

Terrible app. Whether tracking is on or off, never actually tracks anything. Just shows a dot on a map. Tried another hiking GPS app and other app worked fine.

theblatant truth

Cluttered and old ui. No clear workflows

Qalib abbas

Very helpful for land surveyors

Thomas Huff

My biggest complaint, ...simply too many updates. When an app has to update more than once a week, it's annoying. And when it has to update within only one or two days of it's previous update, then forget it.
