Have you guys used the MyTrails smartphone app?
One can download maps for offline use,
free from OpenTopoMap and a number of other providers
or premium (18EUR/year) IGN maps.

Does anybody have positive/negative experiences with either?

Jacek, I have MyTrails on my smartphone. I believe it's very good. Especially if the gps sensor is a fast one.

I created my own offline topomaps of my area. I used MOBAC to create mgm maps. You may find all info and how-to here:
