Looking for the best app out there for plugging in waypoints and POI on an iPhone. We hunt a fairly large (3100 acre) ranch and some of our hunting areas are remote and difficult to find in the dark, not to mention all of the tall overgrowth we have this year. Would be great if the app could be able to export a .kmz file to load into google earth as well for viewing on the web. Or at least waypoint last/long coordinates up to 6 decimals. Any thoughts?

GPS Hunt. Can log trails, waypoints. Can edit the icon for everything. If you want to pay the premium you can export it. I just use it as the free version. and it works awesome.

Onxmaps just make sure to turn your phone to airplane mode so you don't waste battery life

Tag for later.

So you don't need cell service, or to buy those fancy, shmancy Garmins for a weekend in a state park? (Draw hunt)
