MapTrack 1.2

MapTrack Publisher's Description

MapTrack is a PalmOS application to generate and display vector based maps on the Palm screen. 

You can enter your longitude and latitude coordinates and a crosshair display will show your exact position on the map.  If you also have an NMEA enabled GPS connected, it automatically get your coordinates from the GPS and display it as a crosshair on the map/  

Click anywhere on a map to instantly get the latitude and longitude of that point. 


Measure distance and heading between two points on the map by simply clicking on them. Distance can be shown in meters, kilometers, miles, feet or nautical miles. Headings is always in true north.

Waypoints can also be easily added to any map using a special built- in waypoint lookup database. 

You generate your own maps for any location in the world by simply downloading the vector data for that area from a special internet website (see included documentation for details).   You can generate the maps directly on the PDA or you can use a special freeware program called MapMaker.exe to generate your maps on a PC.  (MapMaker.exe is bundled with the MapTrack download).

The program is distributed with many examples of ready-to- use maps from all over the world and includes maps for North America, South America, Europe, Africa, UK, Asia and Australia. There are also maps dedicated to the USA and I included maps of most of coastal US states like Washington, Oregon, California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, North Carolina, New Jersey, New York, Massachusetts, New Hampshire and Maine. 

The program also comes with waypoint lookup tables for major cities from all over the world, as well as waypoint tables for the cities of every state in USA. Please note that I found these waypoints on the internet and that there may be some mistakes in them. 

Who can use MapTrack?

It is quite obvious that MapTrack is incredibly useful as a navigational tool, but it has many other uses for example:


· You can use it to locate the boundaries of a piece of real estate

· a Fire-brigade or Sea Rescue unit can use it to immediately identify a location by manually entering its longitude and latitude.

· A hiker can use it without a GPS to find his own coordinates by simply clicking on his approximate location on the map.
