    Yes, Academy has HotSpot maps for wading and boating, for the areas you'd be interested in. Note the distinction and obtain a wading map.

    Not that I'm aware of, but I'm not an iphone/android user and still use sim based phones.

    But I wouldn't take an iphone out on a wade. I do insert my sim into a basic brick waterproof phone, if I anticipate the need (and for emergency purposes).

    I do track my paddling with the breadcrumb trail on a hand held waterproof GPS and map it for later reference.

    x2, good point.

    The hot spot maps are sometimes geographically challenged. The satellite view in google maps helps clarify things. It also allows you to see some bottom structure.
