Title: Easytrails App - Loading tracks
Post by: ptr52 on January 15, 2017, 04:50:21 pm
Hi
Sorry if this has been dealt with elsewhere, I did search but could not find anything relevant.
I have purchased the Section 4 and 5 Pacific Coast digital maps and I can view them successfully using the free GPX Viewer app on my Android Phone.
My daughter bought me an IPAD 2 for Christmas and I would like to view the maps on the IPAD, but GPX Viewer does not seem to be offered for IOS devices, so I have downloaded the recommended Easytrails app onto the IPAD, (free version) however, I cannot see how to load the digital gpx files from the ACA. Can anyone tell me:
1. Does the free version of Easytrails let you load tracks?
2. If it does, can someone give me a clue as to how it works.
Many Thanks
Peter

Detailed instructions (http://www.adventurecycling.org/routes-and-maps/adventure-cycling-route-network/digital-data-for-devices/tracks/mobile-devices/ios-devices/) available on Adventure Cycling web site.

From a location where you have the GPX files (GoodReader or Dropbox), you can open them in EasyTrails app.

This maybe part of the problem. The free version only supports loading one track. You should be able to see it from the "paw" icon (https://www.adventurecycling.org/default/assets/Image/Routes_Maps/Digital_Data/device/ios/track_list.jpg) at the bottom of the screen.
