When was the last time you used a paper map to drive somewhere? Your guests deserve an Eco-Friendly, 4D interactive experience on your Trails.
- Guests see exactly where they are out on the trail, how much further to the destination
- Vivid colors guide your guests. The TrailHUB app allows users to toggle views:
- Trail Status (open/caution/closed)
- Difficulty (easy/intermediate/expert)
- Surface Conditions(Winter: powder/groomed/trackset/icy/corn, and more)
- Surface Conditions(Summer: spring freeze-thaw/muddy/leaf blown/hero dirt/closed for hunting and more)
- All from a mobile app on their phone - No internet/mobile data required.
Here's a simple guide to help you map your trails, and upload to TrailHUB. (Instant gratification, upon upload your trails instantly appear in the app)
Here we go:
(There are several tracking apps available, below is our suggestion to map from Mobile Phone)
2.) Get outside, walk, ride, ski or use ATV/Snowmobile at low speed. Record a complete trail from start to finish.
- Start of Trail: Open the app, and from the map screen tap 'RECORD'.
- Now travel the trail end to end, do not stop.
- End of Trail: Tap the same button again, selecting 'FINISH TRACK'.
TIP! Turn OFF your Mobile Data when recording with GPS Tracks & Stay in the Center of the Trail if a wider trail.
3) After selecting 'FINISH TRACK' a menu will appear with the option to 'EXPORT'. From here you can choose file type KML and finish the export by selecting your delivery method e.g. email.
4) The final step is to upload this file to TrailHUB.
- Login to www.trailhub.org from Laptop or PC as Organization Admin (Google Chrome preferred)
- From the Dashboard, select 'ADD/UPDATE TRAILS'.
- Find the trail which the tracking file corresponds to and click 'KMZ', and upload the file you exported from Gaia GPS.
Your tracks will now appear in the TrailHUB app for your users to enjoy! (Repeat for all Trails)
TIP! Don't like the way a Trail Looks or Maybe the Trail has Changed? No Problem, simply map the trail again and upload over the previous version. The most recent upload always overwrites the existing.
