Create you own maps anyway you want and I hear its good for prescouting trips. Still learning myself. Also you can print the maps and take them with you for backup.

Ok so I've been playing with the Avenza Maps app for smart  phones. I got started with this app because our Club posted up its course. I've been playing around with it. It appears that there are a series of free maps in  certain locations. The mapping requires no cell coverage unlike some.  I'd like some discussion on phone apps pros and cons for backcountry use.

Avenza is great. Put your phone on airplane mode and it'll run for hours. Can download USGS topo maps showing old trails and the like, then will show you on there quite accurately. Can drop pins, take pictures at those pins (at a wallow or something) and it's free. Can set the app to follow your tracks too, which is quite useful.
