Amazing idea, needs work... Used this for hol to Tignes. Idea is amazing! Track friends around the slope. Great for meeting up as well as general safety. However location on ski map sometimes pretty far off (GPS accuracy fine, just badly mapped from GPS to piste map). Also friends had trouble registering & friend invitations were very hit & miss. So 3 star for now until sign up & invitations more reliable.
Maprika I have used it to make maps of popular Jeep trails that can be hard to find. I am so much more comfortable knowing which turn I am at and not having to guess. Many of these areas do not have cell service and it works great
Now Maps only save for few days. Weird... My saved maps only last for a couple days now. This never happened before. It's frustrating after spending time developing and anchoring, to have maps just disappear after being saved. Not a glitch happens again and again. Update- Still happening 11/02/2015 , be awesome if this could be fixed.
Map isn't updated I am going skiing to saalbach and they just built a new cablecar to connect the resort to another one. Maprika isn't showing the new map, but instead the old one, which isn't helpful. This is my rating until they update the map.
Featureless compared to iOS Skiing with lots of iPhone users all raving about this app. Shame the android ver is only maps, no features, and map of area was badly outdated
Create Piste Map It's great you can make your own normal piste map by downloading an image and connecting points with an online map (easier with their PC app). I just created one for Saalbach, with the new interconnected area, and uploaded it to their server for others to use.
