TraceMyTrack can be used without internet connection. You will only be able to have access to the Help section when you are connected to a WiFi or to your Mobile Data.
With the LITE version, you have limited access to some TraceMyTrack features. For example, you can only record 5 tracks and only within 1250 available track points. With the PRO version, you can record as many tracks as you like and there is no limit to the number of points. Only by upgrading to PRO, you can export your track as CSV, GPX, KML (with or without images). Also, with the Lite version, you will only have access to battery profile 3, whereas with the Pro version, you can access all 5 available battery profiles.
Use TraceMyTrack to your convenience when you take a walk or when you do jogging, on a biking trip, when you go for a hike or when you drive. You can easily adjust your battery options and your recording profile according to the time you will spend without battery charger. That way, you can avoid the low battery issue.
TraceMyTrack is programmed to color your tracks/subtracks depending on your speed. As such, when the speed is 0 or up to 30km/h, the color will be dark red. When the speed is approximately 30km-60km/h, the track/subtrack will go into a lighter red hue. Between 60km-90km/h, the track/subtrack will get magenta hues. As the speed grows, the track will become purple - for the interval 90km - 120km/h - and above this speed, it will get darker hues of blue. Starting with 150km/h and up, the track/subtrack will color into an increasingly lighter blue.
All you have to do is choose one of the battery profiles that is most convenient to you. Tap on the Battery Profiles menu button to reveal the five battery profile options indexed from 1 to 5, from highest accuracy (high battery consumption) to lowest accuracy recording (low battery consumption) and choose the profile that best suits the type of activity you are undertaking.
Exporting and importing a track is only possible if you have upgraded to TraceMyTrack PRO. Go to Main Menu and select the option Export track. Choose from the pop-over window the format option TraceMyTrack. A mailing window will appear and you can add the email address in the first field. The track is attached to the email and you can send it to your friends.
Whenever you are on a trip you can leave TraceMyTrack in the background to do its job and record your journey, so that you can focus on taking photos and enjoying the scenery without concerning yourself to manually adding the photos to your track. When you bring TraceMyTrack to foreground, the app will automatically assign the photos you took while it was in background, to the correct locations where they were captured. To activate this feature go to Main Menu, Settings, “Auto assign new photos”. (This feature is only available for TraceMyTrack Pro).
Before we start you will need the following:
- the device where TraceMyTrack is installed
- internet connection
- a computer with iTunes installed
- a data transfer cable (charging cable)
1. Connect the device to iTunes -> select the device, then:
1.a. Select the “Apps” tab
1.b. Scroll down by dragging the rightmost scroll bar, until you reach “File Sharing” title
1.c. in “Apps" list select “TraceMyTrack” and from the right side, copy the folder “logs” and the file “MyTrack2.sqlite” to the computer. If you have both TraceMyTrack Pro and TraceMyTrack Lite installed on the device, then in the app list you will have two identical “TraceMyTrack” apps, and since you can’t know for sure which is the Lite version just copy the Logs and MyTrack2.sqlite from both of them on the computer.
2. Now you need to send us the files you copied to the computer (“MyTrack2.sqlite” file and the “logs” folder), via e-mail (you will probably need to compress the logs folder, before attaching it to the mail).
When someone sends you an exported track, you can import it to your device by tapping on the attachment icon and by choosing the TraceMyTrack app icon from the app selection window. TraceMyTrack app will open and a dialogue window will ask you if you want to import the track and will also give you the name of the track that you are about to import. You can choose to import it or to cancel the action. Once the track has been imported, you can find it in the Main Menu, under the My Tracks item.
Besides .gpx, .kml, .kmz, .csv export and import formats, one new format is available: TraceMyTrack. It was specifically created for users of TraceMyTrack to be able to export tracks and import them onto another iOS device. Tracks can therefore be shared with anybody who has an iOS device and TraceMyTrack PRO installed on it.
In order to add a photo to a point, tap on the point on the map that you need to attach the photo to and choose the Add Photo icon from the row of point information icons. A pop-up menu will allow you to either Take a photo or Add photos from library. As soon as you have taken a photo or added one or more from the library, it/they will show up in the photo field in the point details.
If you wish to delete a photo from a point, you need to first select the targeted point on the map/track. The point details will be activated in the lower half or the screen, while the photo field will show at the top of the point details. Tap long on the photo you wish to delete. An x button will show up in the lower right corner of the photo. Tap on the x button and the photo will be deleted.
If you want to add tags to a point, first you need to select the targeted point. Choose the Add Tags icon from the row of point information icons. A pop-up list of tags will show up and you may choose, one by one, the tags that you are interested in. If you wish to add a new tag, tap on the + button at the top right corner of the pop-up window and type in the new tag within the pop-up New Tag window.
If you wish to delete tags from a point, whether you are in the preview or the full-view edit point mode, hold a long tap on the tag field and an x button will show up in the top right corner of each tag. Delete the targeted tags and exit the edit state by tapping on the tick icon on the left side of the field.
If you want to add description to a point, first you need to select the targeted point. If you are in the preview mode, by tapping on the Add description icon in the edit point icons at the top of the edit point details, you trigger a pop-up window that allows you to type in the desired description. Tap Ok and the description will appear in the description field of the edit point details. In the full-view mode, you can add a description by typing it directly in the Add description field.
If you want to add an address to a point on the map, first you need to select the targeted point. Choose the Add Address icon from the row of point information icons. A full-view list of addresses will show up and you may choose the address you need to add. If you can't find the address in the list of displayed addresses, tap on Get address for this location at the top of the address list. The address will be displayed in the address field, within the edit point details.
Once you select a point on the map, the edit point details will automatically open up in the preview state. The preview state will always prioritise photos and statistics for a point, but if the former are missing, tags, description and address details will be prioritised. You can swipe open the preview details into full-view state and enjoy all the point information details existent on that point (photos, tags, description, address, statistics), and you can also choose to delete a point or just the point information, by tapping the Delete Point action button.
A favorite point is any point on the track that was either favorited while the track was active, or was marked favorite after the track recording finished. Any point on the track can become favorite after an image, a tag, a description or an address was added to it and can be un-favorited if all point details are erased. A favorite point will be star-shaped and will take the colors and the attributes of the point it previously was.
When you are recording a track and you suddenly find a great spot that you want to immediately mark as favorite, reach for the Add Favorite menu at the lower left corner of the map, marked with an icon of a star and a plus. By tapping on this icon, a menu will pop-up and will allow you to mark the point as favorite - all you need to do is tap on the icon with the star at the top of the pop-up menu. This action will not only add a new point to your track, but it will also mark it as favorite.
The info bubbles are designed to populate your track with more information about your points (photos, descriptions, tags) and to give you a general view of the point details attached to them. They can be activated from the Main Menu, under Track Options, by switching on the Show info bubbles option.
The number at the top right corner of the bubble is called counter and specifies the number of details a point has attached to it. For example, if a point has two photos and four tags attached to it, and if the option Photo preview on map is switched on, the counter will show number +2. The counter will always start "counting" as soon as the point has more than one photo and more than three tags. It will also count the address, if the point has address attached to it. If the option Photo preview on map is switched off, the counter will take into consideration every photo attached to the point and will add to the number. In the example above, the counter will show +3 this time, because it will also take into consideration the photo that is not shown in the preview.
