Trail Locator


RE-CONTINUED as of October 19, 2012 09:00 EST.


Full App Information: http://www.valevarkasystems.com/Configure.php?projector=post&projecting=4



Even more features are planned for the future to increase the efficiency and usefulness (version 6.0).

1.) Tilt Phone to move map

2.) "HUD" (heads up display) for compass

3.) Local storage of coordinates

4.) Control who can see your recorded trails

5.) WiFi triangulation

6.) Efficient loading of map coordinates

A small, but significant update to the ATV Trail Locator program addressed a major issue of user's devices crashing when viewing large areas of the map. This was solved by simply limiting the number of coordinates a user can download per connection to 150.

ATV Trail Locator is an app that allows you to find popular and mildly traversed off-road trails where ATV, dirt bikes, mountain bikes, or walkers travel.

The application, once started, automatically records your GPS position and previously traveled coordinates, sends them to the VVS server, and publicizes them so that others using the app can find traveled trails.

As more people ride trails shared by other users of the app, a different color will be used to signify the trail's popularity.

As more people use the app, while riding new or previously discovered trails, more discoveries can be made, which will make the act of off-road riding more enjoyable.

You can also broadcast your location so that other users of the app can see where the action is.

When broadcasting, your GPS coordinates, only real-time coordinates, are sent to the VVS server. Other users of the app download these coordinates and blips are used to show other riders in the area broadcasting their location.

This app is in no way a privacy concern as it only sends numerical values to the VVS server that can only be downloaded by others after a specified period of time (10 minutes, for example). That in no way identifies you or the device using the ATV app (Except for showing a device is at the specified location, which is controlled by the app user). Other users will only see a blip on their map.

When the application is shut down it instantly de-activates GPS updates for itself and kills your unique key.
