The application also includes many GPS, map and cycle functionality, all that biker needs.
Route description + GPS
The description of each route includes text, photos, GPS trackpoints, and so-called Points of Interest (food & drink...). GPS trackpoints and the Points of Interest will be displayed on the map.
After installing the application, it's good to download one of the offered offline maps to gain independence from the internet. In addition, several other online maps are available. You can also use your own offline map. All maps can be zoomed. Very useful is the magnification function, to adjusts the font size for a small screen. Of course, it is possible to orient the map in the direction of travel.
The following maps are currently available:
- NLC.sk/forest-roads (zoom 14+)
- several more online
The application navigates the selected route, either default from the application, or imported, or created (see section Routing & Planning).
The application records the route, that you have passed. In addition to GPS coordinates, the record contains both time and altitude information. You can add custom waypoints to the record, which can include name and photos.
If Tracking is turned on, it is possible to call up a dashboard with functions similar to a cycling computer:
- total time
- distance traveled
- ascending height meters
- height above sea level
- maximum altitude
- instant, maximum and average speeds
Routing & Planning
Seeks a way from point A to point B with Road - Bicycle - Hiking options. The path is calculated on OpenStreetMap or MapQuest servers and the result is not always perfect. You can also draw or edit your own route.
The application downloads various types of objects, that are interesting for the cyclists (accommodation and restaurant facilities, water springs, cultural and historical objects...). Optionally, objects appear on the map.
The application is able to access social networks and share their own routes or routes in this app.
