The application also includes many GPS, map and cycle functionality, all that biker needs. Also offline maps are available. Function map magnification enables good readability of the text.
Route Description + GPS

After installing of 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. All maps can be zoomed. Very useful is Magnification function, to adjust the font size for a small screen. Of course, it is possible to orient the map in the direction of travel, or by compass.
The following maps are currently available:
- Mapy.cz/SK OSM
- Cykloserver.cz/SK OSM
- Freemap.sk/hiking OSM
- Freemap.sk/cycle OSM
- NLC.sk/forest roads (zoom 14+)
- several more online
The apk provides all functions, what you need in terrain, like navigation on the selected route, optionally with GPX Acoustic Alert and watching progress related to the elevation profile. The route can be either default from the application, or imported, or created (see section Routing & Planning).
If GPS is turned on, you can send positioning SMS messages to your friends and family to see your location in that application on the recipient's side.
Routing & Planning - GPX Editor

Objects, Points of Interest
The application downloads various types of objects, that are interesting for cyclists (accommodation and restaurant facilities, water springs, cultural and historical objects...). Optionally, the objects appear on the map.
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
