What Is Trail Meter and What It Does?
Overview Trail Meter helps people record their hiking routes with distance, pace, duration, and elevation information. A green marker indicates the starting point, and a red marker indicates the end point. Address and geolocation information can be obtained by tapping each marker. Users can choose to stop recording anytime and either save the route or discard it. Users can then choose to continue recording the same route or reset the app to a new start after saving the trail. Saved History By browsing the saved routes history, users can see previous hiking routes to track their progress. Once the trail is saved to history, it can be followed later by clicking the “Trace” button and then the “Start” button to follow the original trail route. This functionality provides various benefits such as finding exactly where the trail was started and what places the user had been to. This helps the user avoid getting lost by knowing exactly which path to choose at each intersection. Photos By clicking the photo button, which has a camera icon, the user can upload photos taken along the routes and tag the photo thumbnails on the exact geolocations where the photos were taken. In order for this to work, cameras that are equipped with GPS sensors need to have their location services enabled so that photos will have geolocation tags attached. For standalone cameras that do not have GPS capability, make sure that the camera’s time setting is in sync with the phone’s system time setting. Share Clicking the share button enables sharing of trail links via email, messaging, social networks, etc. The user can share privately with friends or publicly on http://www.everytriplan.com to benefit other hikers. The user’s friends can download a trail to their phones via the shared link generated by the application. Users can also go directly to http://www.everytriplan.com to browse and search specific trails and download them to their phones locally. Downloads Obtaining the download ticket number of a trail is straightforward. From the trail detail page of the web site http://www.everytriplan.com, click the download button on the top. The ticket number will be displayed above the map image. In the Trail Meter application, press the “+” button under the “Downloads” screen. A text input field will appear. Copy and paste or type the ticket number obtained from the above step to proceed with downloading. Trace Saved history trails and downloaded trails can be followed by the user when clicking the “Trace” button from the trail detail screen. This works well in remote areas where there is no established trail, no cell phone service, or where no maps would be available on the phone. The original saved or downloaded trail routes could be useful guides and references to explore wilderness areas and to avoid getting lost. Tapping the photo thumbnails displays enlarged photos with exact latitude and longitude coordinates for better viewing. Delete To delete any trails that are under History and Downloads, click Delete button from trail detail page.

Step By Step Guide To Install & Use Trail Meter For PC
Using an Android App on Windows Computer is kind of tricky and you need to follow some extra steps. It is because the Windows computer (https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/windows) can only run the EXE file as an application. Since Android apps (https://www.android.com) come with a .apk file that your computer can not run or execute. In this case, we will use some third party software like Bluestacks or Nox Player (software or app or games emulator) who can emulate your Trail Meter app on PC and you are ready to start using this app from your computer.
It is worth mentioning that, Trail Meter is a popular app and will run smoothly in your Windows 10/8/7 and even in XP or the vintage Windows Vista.
