TrekMe is an Android app to get live position on a map and other useful information, without ever needing an internet connection (except when creating a map). It differs from other map apps in the source of maps. Usually, a map is downloaded from the internet and is sometimes cached for an offline access. TrekMe is designed for people willing to use particular maps like USGS in USA, or IGN in France for example. You can also use your own map if you possess a paper map and you want to use it for your next trek. In this case, just scan it, then prepare and view it in TrekMe (see below). It also works if you possess a huge single file (several Gb), as TrekMe is designed to work with arbitrary map size. The only limitation is the memory available on your device (smartphone, tablet).
To support future developments and to guarantee a decent support, the application costs a little. But the content is free.
TrekMe is intended to replace TrekAdvisor. Numerous feedbacks from TrekAdvisor users allowed me to identify some interesting features to add. This requires a lot of time, and will be done in TrekMe.
Here is the list of TrekMe features, missing from TrekAdvisor:
* Use the SD card if available
* Real-time visualization of a gpx record, as well as its statistics (distance, elevation, ..)
* Sharing your gpx records
* Adding landmarks to your maps (always see the direction to some points)
* Better stability
* Improved handling of new users
* Start directly on the last map
* Support in-app map creation from United States’s USGS, France’s IGN map servers, Swiss Topo, Spain IGN, and OpenStreetMap.
* Marker support (with optional comments)
* GPX tracks import, record, share
* Lock the view to the current position
* Orientation indicator
* Speed indicator
* Distance indicator
* Use SD card if available
* No adds
