I just got an e-mail from the folks that run this site. They asked if I could post a link so it didn't get seen as spam.

They said they will be doing one on the Droid soon. I can't wait to see what sort of hiking apps come available for smart phones in the future.

When I am out I don't keep it on all the time and when I am without a good connection I turn it to airplane mode. That said I had coverage on many of my days out on the BMT and AT in the Smokies with US Cellular. AT&T users were screwed.

Yea I agree, but my head spun around. I can adjust for the new stuff and add Aditional batteries as described in Backpacker. An extra battery can hold a charge for one month. Bottom line I can design and engineer a solar panel charge that will provide a positive charge in a light rain.... thought provoking...

Bought the MotionX GPS for $.99.

Pretty cool.

Sweet, now can anybody tell me which (if any) of these apps I can put on my new Blackberry Style. It's my first smartphone (:banghead:) and I'm feeling lost in a way I've never felt lost on the trail.

I have tried a few and find myself using Accuterra the most. I shut off phone and wi-fi, using the GPS. I lost signal a few times under heavy cover, but it worked great above 8,000ft.

The apps are pretty good, just need better antennas.
