    Hey guys sorry to be a bother here, yes this is my first post but I'm in dire need of some assistance.

    I'm looking for an app I found a while ago but decided didn't meet my needs. Turns out I DO need it and I can't for the life of me figure out where I saw it or what it's called.

    Also if you can think of any other application(s) that have this feature please chime in.

    The app allowed you to take a picture of a map, like a trail map on a bulletin board, via the built-in camera. Then you could go to 2 or 3 coordinates on the map and mark them on the photo using the built-in GPS. The app would then use the 2 or 3 points to orient the map and track your location elsewhere on the map.

    Thanks to all that can help!

    (PS if it helps, I vaguely remember there being a YouTube video of a guy demonstrating the app and the presenter (maybe also a developer?) had an Eastern European/Russian-like accent)

    Edit 1: It's like MapSnaps (but for Android obviously)

    Edit 2: I think I just found it!

    Copilot has this feature mate.

    I'll have to look at Copilot, but there is no demo version.

    I think I just found it though!
