When I’m cycle-touring a long distance I generally only switch on Pocket Earth when I’m at a (major) turn or crossing (or when I want to know how far it still is till a next turn.)
It would be very handy that every time when Pocket Earth is switched on it automatically stores the positions in a track. This way I am able to see the route I have ridden by the “bread crumbs” it stores. This could be one track or even better a daily auto-track.
For a long days ride switching on tracking is not an option for me because it uses to much energy since the GPS is continuously on. The bread crumbs auto-tracking would be a perfect alternative!
(Motion-X has this functionality. They call it ‘real time track’, to be found under the ‘Maps’ button.)
My feature request slogan:
“The best overall navigation-app. Enthusiastic to help making it even better (for me at least)!”
Yep, we have had requests for this already, and its on our list! I just can’t say right now exactly when it will get implemented. We have a large number of tracking related enhancements that we want to make so we will probably do an update focused on this at some point relatively soon.
