Find your location - by tapping the central icon on the Menu Bar, known as the GPS Lock Button.
Track in real time - by tapping the Flip Page arrow on the Menu Bar to reach the Flipside page, then tapping Start Logging.
Australia-wide map coverage - with readily accessible Hema field-checked 4WD maps. Simply tap the Maps folder icon on the Menu Bar, then More Maps, then All Maps On Device to access the full list.
Create tracklogs of your adventure - on a moving map display, all on preloaded Hema regional 4WD maps that are each field-checked to ensure accurate navigation exactly when it counts.
*You do not need a SIM Card installed or cellular coverage to utilise the GPS tracking functions on iPad for the app, though a WiFi+Cellular iPad is necessary to discover and track your location. A WiFi-only iPad does not contain the in-built GPS that a WiFi+Cellular iPad does, however external Bluetooth GPS receivers can be purchased for use with a WiFi-only iPad.
Plot your trip
Plan your routes and mark important places with waypoints.
Drop waypoints - by tapping the Add Mark button on the Menu Bar while on the main page. From here it's simple to move, rename and edit the waypoint.
Plan routes - by creating a waypoint with the Add Mark button, tapping the menu (arrow) button attached to the waypoint, then selecting Create Route. After this point, each tap on the map will draw a line between the last point and the newest one.
Placename search - tap the magnifying glass Find Place button, then proceed to type in the town or locality name you’re searching for. By tapping on the result the app will automatically redirect the map to the selected location.
Record & save your tracks
Track your progress to show where you have been and save your completed tracks to use or share later.
Record your trips - complete with a tracklog (breadcrumb trail) of where you went and the paths you followed.
Save tracks with information - that can be viewed in your list of saved Tracks, Routes and Marks. Name, add notes or customise the appearance of these items.
Share tracklogs & waypoints - on supported devices.
