I spend a lot of time on an app called theChive during deer season.

I like Trimble Outdoor Navigator for GPS too

Second this. $10 app that is better than a handheld gps unit. You can also import waypoints that a you export from a handheld unit if you put the time into it. I was able to import all of my old units waypoints into my phone. Never looked back.

Does this work well with an iphone? How's the signal reception in the woods?

yep it works better than any handheld GPS I tried over the years. Deadly accurate and does not fully work off cell service.

I used it last year to navigate to a stand at the top of a mountain in nebraska in the dead dark. took me within a few feet of the tree...and for those that know me and my night time navigational skills you will know how amazing this is

same thing with marking trail cams etc

My friend I sorry to say that the app is Android only :-(

Do believe there are really good iPhone alternatives out there but cannot recommend one since I only use a Android device.

I do see one called trimble outdoors navigator that seems to do about the same thing. pretty good reviews and $4.99. Offline map capability.

I am a medical director for obstacle racing (Tough Mudder, Warrior Dash etc. ) I use Trimble when mapping race courses. I like the fact that you can attach video or pics to all your waypoints. I use hiking, hunting and fishing as well. Well worth the money !

I'm a fan of Gaia GPS on iPhone. Combine that with Maplets, and I could be within about 10ft of where I wanted to be in Cohutta WMA, even with no signal.
