Trax Spots is developed to work with all actionsports, all year around. The app has four predefined categories, Snow, Water, Dirt and City. Just choose which that suits your current activity.
In order to download new tracks or upload logged tracks you need to use either mobile data or available wi-fi. You do not need an internet connection in order to log new tracks or spots. The items you have viewed will be stored locally on your phone and be available without internet connection. You can easily delete these local files by visiting the settings options in the app.
Trax Spots is NOT a safety app and all riding is done on your own risk. We always recommend that you bring the proper safety gear and knowledge before you head out. Check the weather reports and talk to the locals if you feel uncertain.
Augemented reality enables a new way of navigation with Trax Spots. It uses the recorded gps co-ordinates and displays them as a layer on the actual terrain through the ”Live View” function. It can be used instead of or together with the traditional maps to find the drop-in points to for example a off-pist track.
When editing your logged track or spot you will be provided with three sharing options. By default the setting is ”Private” so that you have the chance to edit the track or spot in peace and quite. When you are done and have added all the information you want to provide just chose ”Public” if you want to make it visible to everyone or ”Followers” if you only want your followers to see it.
You can use Trax Spots without any internet connection. The gps works anyway and enables you to log new tracks or spots. Then you can edit and upload them when you are back home enjoying your wi-fi. The tracks and spots that you view in the app are stored locally on your phone so these will be available any time. You can easily delete these local files by visiting the settings options in the app. But do not be alarmed, a track or spot takes about 100 kb each so it will take a while before you fill up your phone.
