What is a favorite point?

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, video, voice memo, tag, 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.

showing the point information

Track Point Editing
How to make a point favorite?


If, while recording a track, you suddenly find a great spot that you want to immediately mark as a favorite, tap the “Mark as Favorite” icon in the lower right corner of the map, which is marked with a symbol made of a star. This will mark the current point as a favorite. In case you have marked a previous point, this point will be marked as a favorite.

How to add a photo or video to a point?

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.


Adding a video is similar to adding a photo, the only real difference is how the video is associated with the track points after the video is added. Since videos are not instant, TraceMyTrack will try to associate your video with multiple locations depending on the video duration, but it will always follow some simple rules:

– if you capture a new video or add a video which was recorded at the same time as the selected point, the video will be associated with the selected point and all next points which were captured during the duration of the video. TraceMyTrack will highlight this track line section for you, and also mark the video beginning and end point with a special icon.

– if you add a video which was not recorded at the same time as the selcted point, the video will only be associated with the selected point.

If you wish to delete a photo or a video from a point, you need to first select the targeted point on the map/track. The point details will appear in the lower half or the screen. Long press on the photo/video you wish to delete. An x button will show up in the lower right corner of the photo/video. Tap on the x button and the photo/video will be deleted.

The only difference between deleting a video and deleting a photo is that when you delete a video, the video will also be deleted from the rest of the points in the current track which may contain this video.

How to add a tag to a photo?


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.

How to add a description to a point



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 wish to delete description from a point, whether you are in the preview or the full-view edit point mode, hold a long tap on the description field and an x button will show up in the lower right corner of the field. By tapping on the x button, the description will be completely erased.

Settings and help
What is the difference between the LITE and the PRO version?

With the LITE version, you have limited access to TraceMyTrack features. For example, you can only record 5 Tracks and only within 1250 available track points, you can not display info bubbles or can’t auto assign new photos to your track. 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).

How do I manually copy and send the database from iTunes to TraceMyTrack Support?

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).

Can I use the app without internet connection?

TraceMyTrack can be used without internet connection, but you need to download the map from the area where you want to create the track in the Main Menu – Manage offline maps, and in the Main Menu you must enable the Use offline maps option. You will only be able to have access to the Help section when you are connected to a WiFi or to your Mobile Data.

Track display
Track line appearance

Track line

What do the colors mean?
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.


Guide section

If you add guide sections to your track, they will be drawn underneath the track line with a greenish color.


Video section

If you assign a video to a track, TraceMyTrack will highlight the section of the track where the video was taken by drawing a “film strip” underneath the track line.
