Good overall, but have had an issue with GPS drift. When stopping, the app will auto-pause, as expected. However, I've noticed that even while paused (moving time is stopped, the outer ring of the app is yellow/orange) my distance will very slowly go up one one-hundredth of a mile at time. If I'm pausing to rest or wait for a friend for 10 minutes, it may add more than a tenth of a mile. I realize this is a small gripe, but can mean a difference of a mile or more of "added" mileage over a long hiking day. I appreciate the auto-pause feature but given that it seems to add mileage when using this feature as opposed to stopping and starting myself, but end up having to manually stop/start in order to avoid GPS drift during auto pauses.

An automatic pause is displayed if there is no significant movement. This is usually an actual pause but you cannot be quite sure. If you have a little movement you cannot decide whether these are GPS inaccuracies during a break or a real movement, for example when hiking in a difficult or steep place. Therefore, with a real break and poor GPS reception (e.g. under trees) a manual break is necessary.

Fantastic hiking app. Easy to customize all the data points I need in the place I need them. I tested the step-by-step for tracker against a couple known trails, was very accurate. Thanks for the great app!
