What's New in Version 22.0
Optimizations and bug fixes.
I hiked across Scotland from the west coast little town Helensburgh to the east coast little town Dunbar. The whole trail is about 150 miles and took me ten continuous days to finish. I installed MotionX to both my iPhone and iPad, which does not have GPS chip set and was meant to be used as simple zoomable map with display larger than iPhone. I like MotionX very much. 1. The user interface operates very smooth, not jumpy like many other Digital maps. 2. When downloading maps you have much better control on zoomin factor, zoom out factor, route/area control so you download exactly what you need. You keep the maps until you want to delete them. Rather, offline Google Maps expired in 29 days. 3. You can import/export tracks and waypoints via GPX files. I imported the ten-days track I needed from a Scotland hiking webpage that lead my hiking so smoothly. 4. The feature I liked the most is that MotionX on iPad communicates via Bluetooth with my inReach to get current location so it seems I had GPS chip set in my iPad. For all the ten days I did not need to use iPhone any more. IPhone would have run out battery very soon when GPS is on. InReach has much much better battery usage efficiency.
I bought this app to use as a plotter for fishing around the bay and coastal areas. Wow is it great. I downloaded the NOAA maps for my intended fishing area (so that I can use them when I am outside cell or wifi coverage areas.) and it works fine. The maps do take up a lot of space on your ipad so you need some storage. The settings for downloading the maps are a bit ambiguous but in a nutshell, the farther apart the sliders are on the download page, the more you can zoom out/in. You should see what i mean when you try to download the NOAA maps. You do need to use a cellular capable ipad to be able to use GPS as the wifi only models do not have the GPS chip in them. Also, the ipad screen is not very bright in sunlight and you need to look pretty closely to see some of the smaller objects but for such an inexpensive app it does a great job as an economy or back-up plotter.
Great but flawed! So close to the best!
I used to use this for long distance when I had very few waypoints, but ended up having to go with a different app. I've had this app for well over a year and have been waiting on what would be the most crucial update...WAYPOINT customization and a few other additions.
The blips, almost cartoon like, clutter the screen especially when your in an area with a bunch of way points together. It would be great to change the size to either a small dot or just something smaller. Additionally an option to not let your waypoints bunch together when zoomed out. Much like a kmz or kml file works with Google earth add a way to tap to turn on/off waypoints in the navigational panel on the left would be quite a feature as well, especially on the fly.
I would even pay more money to add these features. And of course, the most amazing feature for tactical guys would be the screen snap shot and save as file, with option to transfer, email, etc. Route creation and storage along with the easy to turn on off on the navigational pane.
So close to being an amazing app but dropped the ball. Really still hoping they make these additions as an expansion pack... I would drop 15 bux on this easilly. Devs if your reading this, your so close man...
