● No device requires a cellular data plan to use iHikeGPS

● iPad 2 or later with WiFi+cellular, and iPhone 4 or later support full navigation

● iPad 2 or later with WiFi-only, and iPod touch (5th gen or later) can view maps, but require an iOS-compatible external GPS receiver to show your location in the wilderness & record tracks

● Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life

Your dream of hiking adventures reaches new heights with iHikeGPS
