Trails - GPS tracker

Trails - GPS tracker

 

Description

Trails is the first GPS app that allows you to record, export AND IMPORT tracks directly on your iPhone! Prepare and review your outdoor adventures on the iPad (easy exchange between iPad and iPhone).

O'Reilly: "Best app for hiking"

MacUp (Germany): "Best iPhone App for iPhone OS 3.0"

NYT GadgetWise: "Remember That Great Hike? My iPhone Does [with Trails]"

Record your hikes, bike trips or jogs directly on your iPhone. Easily import tracks by simply searching on popular GPS websites such as everyTrail.commapmyrun.com and bikely.com to find hikes and jogs of other users and follow their tracks on your iPhone.

You can view your recordings (live or later) on an OpenStreetMap (the Wikipedia for maps) that include a lot of additional information (such as bike trails, ski lifts, ATMs). You can switch between road and topographic maps! Maps are loaded once and then stored on your phone, so that you can view them again even without an internet connection: offline maps!

Trails is also the ONLY APP that allows you to edit your tracks with a simple tap on the map: delete and label any recorded waypoint.

You can export your tracks with two clicks in the standard GPX Format. This allows you to geotag and geocode your non-iPhone photos (via e.g. HoudahGeo) or to share your track with others via Google Earth, etc. Or upload your tracks directly to everyTrail.com or into your TrailRunner log with a single tap!

Features

- Record waypoints with altitude for multiple tracks (pause and resume as you like)

- Display your tracks OpenStreetMaps and select between road and topographic maps (that include cycle roads)

- Map cache allows you to load maps once and view them later offline (or abroad) without an internet connection.

- Edit recorded tracks on the map: name waypoints or delete unwanted ones.

- See the distance, speed and duration of your track while you record

- Import tracks from bikely.com, everytrail.com, mapmyrun.com through the easy search or import a GPX file from a URL

- No internet connection required during tracking - ideal for holidays. (Loading of maps requires Internet though).

- Export your tracks along with time stamps as GPX file, to everyTrail.com and TrailRunner (free for Mac)

- Select kilometres or miles for display of distance

Trails works best with the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4.

Trails supports multitasking on devices supporting this feature on iOS 4. Please understand that, continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life. Make sure to stop recording tracks before leaving the app in the background if you do not wish to record a track (check the arrow in the status bar). You can disable background tracking support under settings.

10 Thumbs Down

:
This is without a doubt, by far the worst app I've ever seen, even worse than all the free GPS ones. Unbelievably bad. You cannot clear off the screen the data that clutters up most of your map at the top; the map constantly shifts back and forth, from north at the top to the direction you're traveling, making your head spin, and you cannot turn off this feature; the map takes forever to adjust zoom, even with the iphone 4's processor; there is no satellite / aerial view, which is absurd and a deal-breaker in and of itself for an app that is supposedly for hiking and the outdoors - are you kidding us? The "terrain view" is nothing more than the road map with different colors, in fact! I cannot imagine a worse app - worse than the standard map that comes pre-loaded on your phone - they managed to downgrade what was already free. It makes the screen turn black for a few seconds all the time. It's just generally slow, non-intuitive, and non-functional for hunting/hiking/ outdoor navigating use. Just flush $4 down the toilet -you'll thank me for saving you the time.

2/5 stars

Pointless for finding actual trails

:
As stated by many below, there needs to be a way to stop people from posting neighborhood walks, etc. This app should be for people looking for actual trails, not people walking the sidewalks on their lunch breaks - or at the very least make these maps a separate section from hiker's, biker's, rider's, backpacker's trails.

This app is not user friendly, at least not for beginners.

This app needs a search function by GPS coordinates. Let me find my trail map by GPS coordinates!!!

This app needs many many more maps for hiking in state parks - not just the most popular destinations.

This app needs to force people to name their treks something logical, like the name of the park, trail, city/state, instead of something like "Spring Break 2009." That's not helpful and such post shouldn’t even exist.

Until these fixes are made, I would not recommend this application to anyone. I wish there was a money-back guarantee on this, I hate that I wasted $4.

5/5 stars

Very, very good. Not perfect but..

:
I have tried to use other GPS apps to mountain bike around Oregon with not great results. I like that it tracks even with no cell coverage and being able to email the GPX file and view with Google Earth is awesome. If only I could pre-load maps...
