Trail Buddy is a GPS location tracking application designed for walking, hiking or biking. It is also suitable for geocaching and other activities that benefit from GPS and mapping. Trail Buddy supports setting and locating waypoints, which you can pre-set or mark with the current location along a trail. Photos are now a first-class feature of waypoints. Trail Buddy is now completely FREE – no trial mode and no advertising! KEY FEATURES • Start, stop, pause tracking and view current information on one easy-to-read Home page • View summary Stats at any time for the whole track or for individual segments • Change run options, unit formats and map options from Settings pages • Pre-define and display Waypoints (a.k.a. points of interest) or capture your current position along a trail or directly off a map • Take pictures from the Waypoints page using the fast built-in camera support • View the Map page to view your track and waypoints on a map (road, aerial or hybrid) • Find your way to any waypoint setting the special marker as your target destination • Glance at the bearing indicator to see the direction and distance to the current destination Note: an active data connection (3G) is required to send text or email your location and to download Bing maps. V2.0 / v2.1 Update • Now supports Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) • Performance is much-improved, with a faster, more scalable database with automatic conversion • New, improved user interface, especially on the Map page • Take pictures faster from the Waypoint page using the new built-in camera • Choose the standard or the fast camera from the new Pictures section on the Settings page • New Level indicator for the fast camera is great for landscape photos • Delete waypoint pictures by pressing the image • Help improve Trail Buddy: use the Report Error button on the About page • Last (but not least), lots of pesky bugs have been zapped along the way
3/10/2013Great app when it works.
1/31/2013We are using the app for hiking and have found it is very accurate, even in areas far off major roads. It's good.
1/25/2013Not very accurate.
1/7/2013Would not actively show my position. Was about 1-2 city blocks off. Not very good. Walked for 2 miles and the app indicated 293 yards.
12/2/2012Easy to use, simple, yet does all the basic things I want from a trail tracking app.
12/14/2011Great application to track trails. Decent integrations with GPS and maps. Overall very useful.
7/4/2011Sucks. Couldn't find me on a trail. What good is a trail app that cannot use the phone's GPS for location?
5/28/2011Handy application for hikes or walking around the neighborhood. Waypoints are useful as is lat/long/altitude and elapsed time/distance traveled. I like the map view!
