    iPhone 6 Navigation

    I've owned and iPhone 6 plus for years, I use it for navigation at sea. (iNavX and SeaIQ, if that makes a difference.)

    It's very successful in that role, and it occurs to me that there must be similar programs for land.

    The iPhone 6 has its own GPS chip, so what I'm asking about is mapping and navigation programs you've used for hiking. The iPhone 6 will happily navigate by GPS without cell towers or support, so I'm primarily interested in programs that don't rely on a cell signal.

    I'm also interested in Atlas type programs for highways, but my primary interest is hiking.

    What have you used, where did you get maps, and how happy are you with it?

    Worked for me since boy scouts.

    Got two of them that are USGI and two cheapo knockoffs in each Jeep with a topo of the region.

    One GI has Tritium the other Radium illumination.

    Other non powered items I used were a sextant and a chronograph

    Also own an iphone 6 plus. I didn't even think about an app other than the one that came with the phone. I'm gonna have to look into this.

    It's the cat's meow for navigation on water. Seems to me it could work for land, too.

    I'll check it out. But I did do a search and found an off line map. Here is a review of the app.
