BuzzRoute for walking & hiking


BuzzRoute makes your Android device vibrate when you go the wrong way.

BuzzRoute allows you to draw a route on a Google Map, and then, once you begin walking the route, hit the "Walking Man" button and put the Android device back in your pocket. What will happen then? Nothing -- unless you walk off the pre-defined route. If you do, the Android device will begin vibrating in your pocket.

Basic instructions to create a map:

* When you first open BuzzRoute you will see an empty list of routes. Press the large "+" button.
* You will now see a map. Move your map to the location of your route, then click the "Folded map" button.
* You are now in edit mode. Tap on the map to start drawing the route. Each tap will extend the route. To remove the last point, shake the device.
* Once you have drawn the route, press the "Checkmark" button.
* If you press the "Back" button, you will see your new route in the list.
* You can rename the route by choosing "Edit" from the menu.

Walking the route

* When you are at the start of your walk, choose the route from the main screen.
* Once you see the map, press the "Walking Man" button.
* BuzzRoute is now in walking mode.
* If you go off the route, BuzzRoute will vibrate until you return the route.
* You can stop the vibrations by pressing the "X" button.

Import GPX walking routes
