Trails – a update

Trails 2.0 - Infopage

Trails 2.0 - Infopage


I have switched to iPhone OS 3.0 without jailbreak a view weeks ago and I’m really feeling happy with this decision.

And as one of my App-Tests I now gave Trails another try – it’s now version 2.0.

The test-trail was about 6km and the duration was about 3h 45min – don’t wonder why it took me so long… the kids have joined me!

Trails has stored 495 waypoints during this test and have been set almost 100% on the ways showed in the map – so this was a positive result of the testing.

During the test I recognized several crashes of the application – trails terminated sometimes when I tried using the camera feature to take a photo related to the current position. All in all that was no problem because it was always possible to restart the session at the last waypoint without loosing data – and the taken photo also was stored.

What about the battery? Well – it works now much better because the display is faded out after not touching the screen and therefor the energy consumption shrinks dramatically. For this session it took about 50% of the overall battery capacity. I think that’s ok for the most trails. If you need more power you should look for an external battery tank like 3GJUICE.

The export of the trail to the Mac OS X application ‘TrailRunner’ worked like a charm and the map showed up the trail in a usable way.
