What's New in Version 2.6
I spent about 6 hours with this app running, and my group all found it to work very well. Though it tracks your GPS, it does not drain your battery. I have found it to be one of the best apps I have ever purchased. I would like to point out that it is not just for ski maps, but also for places like Six Flags Great America, and Disney land/world. They also connect you to Apple Maps which can show your location anywhere in the world. If anyone is looking to GPS track a group so you aren’t split up, or trying to find a place to meet, this app is perfect for all situations. Hope your experience was as great as mine!
Great for 4 wheeling
Simple to use and customize: download the mapping tool from the maprika site, find a good map, convert it to .JPG, align points like intersections and forks you see on your map (on the left side of the editor) with what Google maps sees (on the right side of the editor). Once updated, publish the map for others to download. Be sure to turn off your cellular network because this tool uses GPS, but it does need cellular to see others (friends in your group you've invited).
Great app, I swear by it, have no concerns about exploring without getting lost or how to see what's next.
Btw; even works on hand drawn maps!
Carson National Forest - El Camino Real district users check out my map (named accordingly), it's spot on accurate (East of NM 518 and West of 434, south of NM 64)
Awesome awesome awesome!
This app is amazing!!!! We use it for metal detecting to locate old home sites and old roads from 1800s maps.
The uses for this app is endless. The real power comes in importing your own maps on the computer.
If there was only one bad thing... It eats the battery when on constantly updating the GPS but that is with any app using that function I think. I just turn if off after referencing location.
