The maps gets downloaded. And gps works offline with high precision. I dont think i would have been able to find my way to the peak without this app.
Well done! I can see all of HKs hiking trails in one place. Even has links to the trail or titles that you can search for. Nice easy-to-see layout of different color-coded trails in a given area of your choice.
VERY HELPFUL APP
Best hiking App for HK. I've gotten lost so many times on those unoffiical trails, this app has saved me plenty of times while i'm deep in the woods. I wish there was a web based* version for me to map out my route prior to Hiking (e.g. Google Maps). I usually plan my hikes before heading into the woods, planning on the computer is much more efficient then the phone. Keep up the good work!
Much more practial for hiking than trying to use google maps. The map database is very complete, with a lot of paths that are not on the official HK maps. Unfortunately a couple of irritating features: firstly when opening the app it always jumps to the current position, which is annoying if you are trying to look at a different area. Secondly it sometimes seems to stop logging if you have another app open in the foreground, so if you want to answer a message, you have to remember to swap back to this app if you want the tracklog to be complete. Thirdly it would be nice to be able to plan a route on the website (like trailwatch.hk) as it's pain to have to do this on small phone screen.
- Fixed an issue after the last update that the app will crash on Android 6.0, if it does not have Location permission.
[Changelog for last version]
- Scale the text on the map, according to the system font size setting.
- Try to improve the track logger, which may stop logging sometimes on Android 6.0.
- Fixed an issue that notification icon cannot be properly displayed on Android 5.0.
- Fixed an issue that the app may crash on some devices without GPS.
