Re: AT&T has Cell Phone coverage in Grand Portage

I have ATT and had signal while at Rainbow Cove. Also had signal for most of the boat ride over from Grand Portage. Ended up getting a Canadian tower while on feldtmann ridge fire tower.

Re: Trail Tracking

I use Backcountry Navigator on my Android phone. It allows you to download maps and saves your location at an interval. No cell signal required after you've downloaded your maps. I've also heard GaiaGPS is a good app, but don't have experience with that one yet.
