Would be 5 stars if they fixed one thing: roads need the stand out a little more and be labeled in such a way as to be readily identifiable. Why? Because, in many cases, the roads are the best reference point to get an idea of where on the map you are looking. Especially if you are unfamiliar with an area's peaks.

Not a fan how it doesn't scale with the apps zooming. It's a set number of pixels and detail and contour line separation, which is perfect for a map, when you have the whole thing in front of you, but not ideal when you have to zoom and scan to particular areas. Also it would be GREAT if your maps were compatable with Garmin or Gaia (preferably Garmin) so we could download them as an overlay on the watch or inreach and follow them from there. Currently, the one app that is available is really not a very powerful app and doesn't have a lot of transferrable features to other apps (Garmin Basecamp, Strava, etc.). Would be most useful if the map either could overlay on these more popular apps, or if you could export gtx files of the routes after you purchase them. This is a lot of personal preference, if I'm the only one, it's not as big of a deal, but I do believe there's a big opportunity here to expand/improve to make these maps even better than they are.
