    I am heading to Canada soon. Any estimate on when Canadian Trails Illustrated maps will be included in premium membership? Thanks.

    Hi,

    We haven't received data for Canada yet, so, unfortunately, I don't have an ETA.

    Would love to have had Jasper and Banff National Parks last summer. They have excellent National Geogrpahic maps available in print, so any ETA on getting these digitized?  These are pretty popular hiking/backpacking parks! I’m planning more long trips this summer, so any word would be great. Love the app and rely on it a lot!

    Hi,

    Canada maps haven't been provided to us, and unfortunately, I don't have any sort of timeline for that!

    Hi Ashli,

    Thanks so much for the quick reply.  

    This may seem like a silly question, but have you guys asked for them for NatGeo? I mean, these are identical to the maps for US trails, so from their end, it should not be that big a deal to provide them. I;m curious where you all are in that process.

    The maps in question are 900, 901, 903 and 904 to cover Banff and Jasper.  I have all of these on paper, but sure would like them digitized on your app. As I said, last year in Banff on multi day trek, the trails on the app were not useful at all.  A shame, as I am a huge supporter and have even mentioned your app on our Youtube channel - because when it has the trial data, it can;t be beat.

    We have a couple hundred km planned on Jasper's North Boundary and South Boundary trails this summer and they are very remote. Thus, the urgency for us...

    Thanks again for you help!

    Stuart,

    Yes, we have an open dialogue with NatGeo -- I personally don't know the exact details about those maps, but I was given to believe adding them was complex in nature. 

    Gaia Topo and Canada Topo West would be great alternatives for your trip.

    Thanks again Ashli.  Those old maps are ok, but rather outdated. (I've recorded tracks and can see the real world result)   Hope you guys get those NatGeo loaded up too, would be very helpful. (can't see why they'd be any tougher than the US ones... as they are the same maps)

    Love the app. Keep up the great work!!
