Searching for hikes using my phone

Post by DaveFraser » Mar 10 2016 7:01 pm

I love being able to save a route using route manager and then use it on my android phone with Haz Tracks and/or Route Scout. I would like to know if there is a way to search for hikes or tracks while using my android in the map mode. I end up in a area and may change my mind on the trail I want to hike and would like to see all the available hikes using just my phone.

Good question as you more than likely will not have internet access

As long as you have an internet connection (cell signal) you just click "Import" and then choose "nearby" to see a list of hikes and the distance you are from them.

It will not pull up all hikes that exist on HAZ however ... only those hikes that have an "official route" designated.

Nearby will pull up all nearby hikes

The purple ones have an "Official Route"
When you tap it you have the option of importing or going to the mobile web page

Those without a route offers going to the mobile web page and info on how to post a route.
