Seeking App that tracks Hike & prevents getting lost


Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

Is there such thing as an app that can track your path while hiking, so you can use it to assist in navigating your way back if you get confused? I'm thinking such an app would be invaluable to prevent people from getting lost. It seems like a GPS app could easily include this feature, since gps is already continually monitoring your position.

Does such a thing exist?

Hi Greg,

There are indeed several apps that provide the ability to create a track as you hike - here’s a look at one although we didn’t go too much into tracking in this article:

Although I like to stay found with a paper map these apps could also help in the situation you describe by simply displaying your location on a map whereby you could navigate to where you need to be without a track as well.
