I shoot Ariel and Ground video for large ranches in Texas. I generally ride around with the owners viewing different aspects of the property. In the past I always had a hard time remembering where these locations were as some of these wrenches can be quite large. With the use of GPS tracker I can now document not only the points of interest but also the roads and paths in which to get to these locations. This is become an in valuable tool for me when doing my work.
Not reliable. May or may not record your route in a seemingly arbitrary manner. Suggest MapMyRide/run or strava for consistent service.
We use this app metal detecting to find long gone houses in the woods and we usually can find them within a few feet.
Easy to use, accurate
I love this app and use it all the time on the fire line. Unfortunately I haven’t been able to download the map this week, thought it might be a glitch. Or maybe I needed to upgrade But it’s been great for measuring out land that has burned. Hope the bug gets fixed soon.
This app is very cool and well made. However! The subscription to unlock all features is just pure greed. I would gladly pay the $30+ dollars for a fully unlocked app of this quality. But to require a monthly/yearly subscription for features that are literally already in the app but just simply locked? Greed. I’m switching apps.. wish I didn’t pay for this one at all
What do you really want a GPS app to provide? So, for starters, a map. Check. You may want to plan or import routes and enter destinations or landmarks (waypoints) and have a logical way to organize them. Check. See where you are on the map and track your movements with a customizable, easy to use interface. Check. Save/export your hike, bike ride, etc. and see stats about it. Check. Do you want lots of control of the settings? Easy access user guide? Responsive support from the developer? Check, check, check. How about trail suggestions, reviews, star ratings and social media? Not me, and thank goodness GPS Tracks is not trying to do that. Of course no app is perfect for everyone. An option for motion start would be handy on benefit bike rides so I can stow my phone and have the track start when they send us off. During live tracking I would rather have total ascent than “average” ascent on the map screen. I also haven’t used the heart rate monitor and probably wont, but ok, it’s there. Minor niggles. Overall, I really like this app for what it is and what it isn’t and I plan on upgrading to the Pro version once I start needing to download maps for offline use. Oh, and if you are looking for a replacement for Motion-X, GPS Tracks is probably the one you want.
Terrible to work with. No customer support. Save your self some grief.
Only thing missing is the ability to manage the storage of your tracks in separate files to be able to easily manage, categorize and find tracks stored in the system
It took me three days and 8 recharges just to figure out how to shut off the waypoint arrow in the compass. I am still not sure how I did it and am not sure what other functions I may have shut off in the process, but it is gone now.
