Mohawk Valley GIS, creators of the NYSnowmobileWebMap.com interactive trail map and trip planner website, has just released a trail app for Android smart phone users.
The iPhone version is currently in beta test and will be available shortly.
The app features trail coverage for 45 counties in New York, including the popular Old Forge and Inlet permitted trail system.
Trails, intersections, sponsoring businesses and current GPS location all display without reception. Choice of street view, satellite or hybrid background maps display with reception.
Users can create a route before heading out or check the mileage of any trail segment. Most importantly, riders can feel safe in unfamiliar terrain knowing that their GPS location and the trails and intersections will always display regardless of tower reception.
Route creation and trail mileage checks will work regardless of reception availability also.
The NYSnowmobileWebMap.com project is now in its third year. Snowmobile clubs can benefit from the new profit-sharing model, introduced for this season, along with numerous other new web map offerings.
Complete details and screenshots for the Snowmobiling New York State app are available on the NYSnowmobileWebMap.com website, along with contact information for questions or to suggest new features.
