iPackTravel: Map My Travel Trails

Updated: Oct 14, 2020

Hiking Trail

iPackTravel has a new travel module for mapping of hiking trails, called "Map My Trail". Extending that capability, the module can also track the routes taken when in certain modes of transport (excluding underground trains). This module uses GPS locationing to get location updates from GPS-enabled mobile device to plot travel trails on map.

You can trace your travel routes wherever you go and share them online. A great tool for travel bloggers, add credibility to your blog by showing that you have actually been there.

iPackTravel App Now Supports Hiking

Yes, with the original "Packing List" module, the recently added "Location Finder" module and now "Map My Trail", iPackTravel is not just a travel-companion app for travelling use, but a hiking-companion app too. Well, hiking in overseas destinations is also part of travelling when visiting nature parks.

Fully Configurable Settings

The "Map My Trail" module is fully customisable. When the activity type for a new trail is selected as "Walk" or "In Transport", iPackTravel will set a default accuracy level and update interval for the selected activity. iPackTravel suggested these values to balance accuracy with performance, battery consumption and appropriateness, but you can change them.

Higher accuracy may result in higher power consumption. The accuracy setting can be adjusted to achieve optimal tracking for the full trail without having the battery going flat mid-way. So, avoid going for the highest accuracy if it is not necessary. High accuracy is also not required when in a transport.
