Since you already are PM, just create and download some pocket queries, then on the official app, just save them to offline use and you are ready to go.

Any app that allows for offline caching (and most do) will work.

 

Keep in mind, though, that it's hard for any device - phone or GPSr - to find the satellites to lock in your position when you're in heavy woods. So it's not going to be easy regardless of the availability of a phone signal.

If you're going to be in the woods w/o cell service for a significant amount of time, don't forget to switch to airplane mode.

Phone batteries drain fast enough in regular use. If it's CONSTANTLY polling for a cell tower that isn't there, you won't last very long at all.
