Never lose your track
GPX Viewer and Recorder is a tool that is used for travel and navigation purposes. Unlike the most commonly used maps, it offers more than just helping its users locate a specific area or location. GPX viewer has different features that can help create, track, and record your movements on the map, review previously used routes, check your travel time, and a whole lot more.
One of GPX Viewer and Recorder’s key features is being able to map out your movements as you travel in real-time, regardless of your mode of transportation. This can be done by activating or enabling the Track Route on Map option, which then allows GPX to follow and record every path and turn that you take. Once you have reached your destination, you can disable the function by clicking on Stop Follow Me. The route that you have taken will then be saved and stored by the app so you can use it as a reference in the future. The Track Route on Map feature is useful for when you would like to try alternative routes or are visiting an entirely foreign area so that when you need to return back, you can just check your self-made directional map instead of wasting your time trying to remember which way you took the last time.
One of the basic things that travelers must learn is always knowing where the North is. GPX Viewer and Recorder is able to synchronize its map with the compass. Enabling this feature will have the map fixed into facing the North no matter which way you go. The map will only rotate with the user if this feature is disabled.
Review your travels
Being able to save previously taken routes for later use is not the only way for you to be able to review your travels. GFX Viewer and Recorder also takes note of other important details such as departure and arrival time, travel time, speed, stopovers, and even the number of steps taken. These logs can be exported and then imported to other platforms that are compatible with them.
Different maps, different views
GPX Viewer and Recorder offers different kinds of maps for viewing with—each one serving a unique purpose. Probably the most important and useful map of all is the map for traffic status and reports, which basically informs its users about the traffic situation on the routes that they plan to take. The other two maps offer 2 different satellite views that let you either see a whole area from a bird’s eye view or to look at it from up close. Depending on what you are trying to accomplish, these 3 map views will surely help you in your travels.
Navigate like a pro
Despite its many features, GPX Viewer and Recorder is not the most ideal navigation tool for everyday use, like Waze or Google Maps. However, GPX is great for planned road trip travels and vacations. Its ability to track, remember, and save tracks you have taken and other information is what makes it a good companion for traveling to foreign and unfamiliar places.
