BETYÁRWILÁG TOUR NAVIGATION APPLICATION - OR INNOVATION IN BAKONY
Every year, 40-50 thousand people visit Bakony for hiking, recreation and entertainment. And Bakonyerdő Zrt. is the forest manager that encompasses natural zones from three counties in this area and manages and develops them. One of the most famous and beautiful regions is the valley of the Cuha stream, which is also home to a very old story. However, many people do not know the historical significance of this area. Bakonyerdő Zrt.'s plans have long included the creation of more dedicated hiking trails for visitors, however, due to the natural features and weather conditions, they were unable to post physical signs. In addition, they were also aware that there are more and more younger visitors among the visitors, so they finally decided to create a tour navigation application.
The Betyárvilág tour navigation application is not just a route planner. While traditional hiking applications provide simple maps and performance tracking, Betyárvilág's offer offers a more diverse, interactive and colorful experience for hiking. The first thing that stands out when you download the app is that you can see the route (not even during the tour) ahead of time. What's more, the trip doesn't even start until we've arrived at the starting point. So if we want to see what the tour might be like in Pest, we only see that the app wittily warns us: approx. We are 240 km from the start of the tour.
During the tour navigation, the outlaws in the application also appear at the locations of the stations. You will find a picture of each station and the corresponding description.
Our main support during tour navigation is a built-in compass that shows us the way. In addition, the mobile application also draws our attention to various signs and adds comments on how to approach each station more easily.
We can listen to their stories in the excellent performance of Lehel Kisfalusi, so we can especially imagine these cunning figures in front of us with the delicious speech.
And the precise functioning of the compass was also important because the signal strength in the forest is often not adequate for the Internet, and in many cases not even a grain of field strength. Thus, the mobile application relies on GPS coordinates and works offline.
If we start the tour, remember that the journey can take 4-5 hours. Always have food and a sufficient amount of water with us!
Attention: leveling up! In the bed of the Cuha Stream, we also encounter rock walls, and it is worth paying attention when crossing the steeper parts.
RAISED WATER LEVEL
Due to the changing weather conditions, the water level of the Cuha Stream rises during the rainy season. It is therefore necessary to find out at the beginning of the tour whether the excursion can be done even after a heavy rain.
The middle section of the tour is a bit more difficult than the usual forest walks. The compass guides us through steeper parts at the Cuha stream, so it is worth preparing for this with the right clothing, sticky, durable shoes and a sufficient amount of attention!
Pay attention to the battery: make sure to charge your phone properly before the tour so that it lasts until the end and can navigate us on the way.
