Map data for each MapPack App is installed with the application and available offline!
Each MapPack covers a specific area or park of interest.
This edition covers the full extent of Yellow Stone National Park.
For this App the map data for Yellowstone will be installed on your devices external storage, and
you will need to have 340 Megabyte of available storage.
We realize some users do not have the available storage or have experienced difficulties loading Apps with expansion files, so also available on the App store is a compact version with less than a 50 MB overall file size, with some sacrifice in map image resolution being made to accommodate the smaller footprint.
This version also Includes GPX file support, to save and view your recorded tracks.
The GPX trail files are saved to accessible external storage folders.
You can create new GPX trail files from your recorded tracks and or add
GPX files from other sources for viewing in this App.
Browse mode, allows for browsing of map areas, and previewing of GPX trail overlays.

On startup defaults with GPS in pause mode, and displays a general location in the park.
To start the GPS tracking go to the map settings and un-check the pause GPS box.
Track recording is off by default.
To start a new track recording file, name your track, and check Record Track under Map Settings.
You can start and stop the recording anytime.
The bread crumb trail runs all the time while GPS tracking is enabled.
Statistics data will be displayed when recorded track is selected and displayed, when enabled.
Note below zoom level 16, new topo map tiles will not be loaded and displayed , so if you don't see a topo check and make sure the zoom is at 16 or above.
If you select a single map from the selection, make sure you are at zoom level 16 or above or the map will not be displayed.
When displaying track overlay files the browsing of maps is slower, for general browsing you can speed things up by clearing the track display while browsing.
**Never rely on electronic devices , they can fail at any time.
To be resolved in next release...
Every time the App is started the data initialization cycle occurs, the map display shows a blurred map
and once initialized will animate the map to a default location on the map as soon as the first gps location update occurs. Attempting to use the select map feature prior to full initialization will cause a
crash. Note also the animation to default location only occurs if gps is paused otherwise it will animate and center on the gps coordinate of your current location.
