Trail Treker is a map viewing tool for use with the Trail Treker map publishing service. Trail Treker works with clubs, tourism agencies and municipalities to make their maps work offline on end user smartphones. Once the map is loaded, you no longer need phone service; the GPS receiver in your phone will operate without phone service. In fact, we recommend that you place your phone in Airplane Mode if you are in an area with limited or partial phone service to conserve your battery. Trail Treker will also electronically, via GPS location, show local businesses and points of interest. You can store your own points of interest as well. Key points such as survival shelters, supplies, or emergency evacuation points may be shown on various maps. The Trail Treker app will allow you to download any member map. If you have a member map code, the map will be free. If not, the map will be an additional purchase. Continued use of GPS in the background can decrease battery life. FEATURES: Show Trail map overlaid on various Google maps (Standard Street, Terrain, Satellite) Show your position on top of any map. Record your position and tracks Record notes regarding position points Share your saved positions or tracks with others See local businesses on or near mapping area Filter local businesses by category Load and layer up to two maps concurrently and any number of tracks. Load any number of maps (storage space required)
It is a great thing, but needs more maps.
I downloaded and paid for an app and a few months later it’s gone!?
Better apps out there for much cheaper. This one does not have much for Wisconsin. Get the app maplets instead they do not charge for each map.
I did not have cell coverage along rt 24 and Trailtreker did a good job keeping me "on track". Few times the app was getting incorrect GPS positions. I emailed Trailtreker support and they fixed the issue quickly.
