Footpath Route Planner

Frequently asked questions

Does the app work offline?

Yes! The app is designed to work offline, allowing you to navigate your saved routes and even plan new routes if you’re out of cell service or in airplane mode.

Any maps you view will be temporarily cached in case you lose cell service, or you can upgrade to Footpath Elite to permanently download offline maps for any of your routes.

Some aspects of route planning, such as snap-to-roads and loading elevation profiles, currently require an internet connection, but you can always disable snap-to-roads to plan a route while offline.

Where do you have map coverage?

Our Footpath Maps have coverage for the entire world, where roads and trails have been mapped by OpenStreetMap.

We also have premium topo map coverage for the following countries with an upgrade to Footpath Elite:

What’s included with Footpath Elite?

Footpath Elite offers premium features for experienced athletes and explorers:

Footpath is available both as an annual subscription and as one-off month or single route passes.

Do you offer a free trial to Footpath Elite?

No. However you can try Footpath Elite risk-free by unlocking it for a single route for only $1.99.

What happens after my subscription or pass expires?

You will no longer be able to view premium topo maps, download offline maps, export your routes, or access any of the other Elite features.

Any offline maps that you have already downloaded will remain on your device until you remove them.

How do I cancel my subscription?

You can cancel your subscription that was purchased through iTunes by clicking on this link on your phone and turning off auto-renewal at least 24-hours before the end of the current period.

Footpath Elite will continue to remain active until the end of your subscription period, so you can cancel any time before renewal.

Not a fan of subscriptions? We offer one-time “Single Route” and “One Month” passes.

Do you have non-subscription options?

Yes, a “Single Route Pass” or “One Month Pass” will not renew and there is no need to cancel. These are great if you just need Footpath Elite for that once-in-a-lifetime trip.

What is a “Single Route Pass”?

You can unlock Footpath Elite features, including offline map downloads, premium maps, and GPX exports for a single saved route. You can purchase this for as many routes as you need, and these features will remain available as long as you keep the route saved.

You can remove and re-download offline maps for your purchased route at any time.
