With ‘Sketch a Track’ you can easily plan your next hiking or bike tour and generate offline maps*. Simply draw a track on the map (+offline maps*) or import GPX tracks from all over the world. The track is analyzed by the app, the distance and an elevation chart is displayed. Navigation while doing outdoor activities like hiking or mountain biking is easy off the road.
Offline maps* can be generated to use the app without an internet connection.
GPX is a commonly used file format to exchange GPS track data. You will find a lot of hiking or mountain bike tours in this format on the internet
'Sketch a Track' is an easy to use GPX creator. You can create and edit your own GPX files to share them with others.
Tracks can be imported, exported, drawn, erased or explored. Exploring means that you can move across the track and the corresponding location is marked in the elevation chart.
Also your location is displayed on the map as well as on the elevation chart when you are close enough (within a radius of 100 meters/330 ft) to the track. Imperial as well as metric systems are supported.
A track can consist of several segments. A new segment can be started by pressing the S Pen side button while hovering on the screen.
'Sketch a Track' is optimized for devices with an S Pen, but also a great tool on other devices.
You have a Samsung Gear? Then also have a look at 'Sketch a Track for Gear'!
