Here's an early user review from the iTunes app store that descibes the user experience well:

Only GPS App you will need for the backcountry
This is it...The only GPS app you will need for backcountry activities like cycling, sailing, hiking, or anything else that takes you off the beaten track! PathAway has been a full featured favourite on Palm and Pocket PCs for years and is finally available on the iPhone. I've tried other hiking and biking apps but nothing comes close to PathAway in versatility. I love the ability to create and import custom maps which show all the detail I need to create routes and navigate on the fly. Routes can be as simple or complex as I want or need. Maps showing different features and levels of detail can be layered on top of each other. Custom dashboards display realtime tracking and navigation information. Scott and his PathAway team have done a great job of putting the backcountry at our iPhone fingertips.
