Yes, you can use your phone’s GPS for hiking. However, there are a few things to keep in mind when using your phone’s GPS while hiking. First, make sure that the phone has a good signal and is properly charged. Second, be aware of the battery life of your phone; if it runs out of juice halfway through a hike, you’ll have to stop and wait for it to charge before continuing. Finally, be careful not to rely too heavily on the GPS while hiking; if you get lost or injured, having access to map data may be more important than relying on your smartphone’s navigation system.
