I will admit I am electronically challenged. I have tried backcountry navigator, avenza and a couple others. I can never get a background map to stay working. The tracks I load are there but background maps always disappear. I tried on x today. No luck. After spending hours trying to make tracks show on map, my wife figures out the trial version wont even do that. Bought the app. Loaded everything in my tablet. Took off, had to fuss with it to get it to follow us, then every time u touch the screen it goes back to not turning when you do. Had topo and sat background that i downloaded, but neither show any of the other trails as we pass them. As i said Im not good with this stuff, but I am beyond frustrated with this. Im sure im missing a couple key steps.
Thanks for giving onX Offroad a try. Let's see if I can help you out by answering a few of your questions...
- "Turn on the headlights" by tapping the location crosshairs button twice. The app will always point forward to the top of your phone or tablet showing the direction that you are moving. Now, if you tap the map somewhere else or move the map, the "headlights" will turn off. This allows you to move your map and find something. Simply tap the location crosshairs button twice to turn on the directional "headlights" again. I'll add a short how: to video below.
- Above you mentioned "neither show any of the other trails as we pass them" As you drive, you should see on the map open trails and roads as you drive along on either satellite, topo or hybrid maps.
- Did you download offline maps before you left cell service?
