Track your current course, elapsed time, and distance traveled. Plot your points on your computer with Google Maps and import them via iTunes file sharing with the KML format. Import and export multiple file types, including CSV, GPX, and KML. Store your favorite locations. Save and review your past tracks. The app is capable of handling multiple types of coordinate systems, including decimal, DMS, MGRS, and UTM. Text or email a link to your location; the recipient can click to open your location on a map. Get driving directions from Google Maps or Navigon. You should be aware that GPS Tracks does not give turn-by-turn directions itself, and it can have an adverse affect on battery life if you keep it running in the background. We took a first look at the iPad version last year, which is great if you’re doing your outdoor activities with the Wi-Fi + 3G model.
So, would you like to win a copy? We’ve teamed with the developer to offer promo codes to eight lucky readers; four for the iPhone version and four for the iPad. For your chance to win, simply comment below and tell me two things:
1) What sort of outdoor activity do you enjoy that would warrant an app like this?
Be sure that you’ve registered with a valid email address, so we can contact you if you win. Winners will be selected by Wednesday, Feb. 29, 1:00 p.m. EST. Good luck!
