HAZ Tracks - GPS Hiking App
● record hikes
● import & export
● offline topo & satellite maps

Android
1.8.22

iPhone
1.8.23

Quirks ( not a HAZ Tracks issue )
- Nexus w/Jellybean off line maps do not work, consider upgrading to 4.4 or higher
- Moto X not working? try "Device only" rather than "High accuracy"
- Android 4.1.1 map freezes, upgrade your device to 4.1.2 or higher

anyone is welcome to donate an old Mac & iPhone to the HAZ DEV team if they would like to see HAZ on Apple

2014-02-14 Update
Received an iPhone donation! An old MAC is required to develop on Apple's proprietary system. If you have one collecting dust send me a PM

2014-03-28 update
The HAZ Development team is working on getting the equipment required to create an iPhone app. Current guestimate for a working app is Summer 2014.

I use android myself, but if you are serious, I do have an old iPhone 4 I can donate.

Thanks for the app BTW!

Still months away best case scenario and subject to approval by the fruit foundation...

HAZ Tracks ran on Grimey's donated iPhone today. Surprisingly nice too as iOS controls are considerably slicker than Android. Looks to be a winner once the bugs are figured out ( dev team is backed up ).

Wow, nice to hear. I have a Samsung s3 and I will be getting a new phone. I was thinking HTC m8 but when I heard that Apple was finally going to a bigger screen. I decided to wait for it and compare those two.

Ok, now then ... Is there any option for offline map storage (current or in development)? That's hugely important to me because 1. phone battery doesn't last forever and 2. there's generally not a signal where I hike (despite photo evidence to the contrary).

In the plans... a long ways out to automatically include map tiles for "follow" routes.

Android users can preview necessary maps ahead of time. Generally enough to cover a hike will cache and show off-line.

I always carry two portable backup batteries. Lately I have been using my tracks app. I like it when I start tracking most of the time the map of the trail I am hiking shows up. I really like that because I can see where I am on the trail.

I do have 1.7.4 on my phone. Most of the time it times out and I don't know why.

@Widowmaker
No problems on my phone. HAZ Tracks runs like a charm! Better than any ole Garmin 62, that's for sure...

@The Eagle Not sure why mine doesn't work. It used to work for me in the Supes.

Hello

Download Haz tracks and started adding files. When I tried adding the 4th file, it said the limit was 4 - even though I had 3.

Haven't tried it on a hike yet - will probably give it a try this weekend.

I only need 1 gpx, but curious why the limit is 4 - and I can only load 3.

I have a s4, running kit kat (not sure of version - latest one ATT has out right now).

Glad I have a option/backup to my Garmin - not that I do any trails where i could get lost, but I always like options.

That would be the 3 downloaded plus 1 for recording. The wording on that probably needs clarification, I'll look into it - thx

Future versions should hold more files when cross platform device storage standards become more standard.

You can get more files into HAZ Tracks if you plan ahead with Route MGR.
- HAZ Tracks holds (4) routes - 6,500 track points ( roughly a thirty mile equivalent ) + 50 waypoints
- the key is to create a "route" ( aka .gpx file ) in Route MGR with multiple "tracks"

example 3 tracks as 1 route

the above was created in Route MGR http://hikearizona.com/map.php?MY=7321&M=3

HAZ Tracks version 1.7.6 was just published to Google Play ( typically available in 3-12 hours ) & iTunes ( available in 4-9 days ).

● added satellite layer
● also added page back via swipe for the iOS version

If you find the app useful please consider leaving feedback on Google Play or iTunes. Likewise if you have ideas to make it better speak up or send me a PM. Please note there are currently 2 major tasks on the todo list ( listed in the first post of the thread ).

edit: Android version is now available as of 8:25pm ( 25 minutes later )
edit: iOS version is now available ( 5 days, 12 hours later )

Looks good. You may want to add a new view on the Google Play and iTunes screens.
