How It Works

Our maps are designed to be loaded into a smartphone (Android or iOS) BEFORE losing cell signal and then, when opened using the recommended app (Avenza pdf-maps), all that is necessary is the GPS function of the phone to locate your position on the map.  So, you move around on the map, the blue dot will show you where you are on the map.  It's really that simple!

All of the information you need is right there on our map!  Trail name, number, rating, etc - all there!

Follow these simple steps:

First, do this with a good, strong data/wifi signal:

1) Download the "Avenza pdf-maps" app to your Android or iOS device.

2) Purchase the maps you need from the CartoTracks.com online store. 

3) You will receive an e-mail after checkout from our online store.  

    - Check your spam folder if you do not recieve an email after ordering.

    - IF YOU DON'T SEE AN E-MAIL LOGIN AT CARTOTRACKS.COM AND FIND THE MY ACCOUNT LINK THEN "FILES" - COPY FROM THERE AND CONTINUE TO STEP #2 BELOW.

4) Follow the following instructions for Android or iOS device:

1) COPY (TOUCH & HOLD - then COPY) the link from the email that you received.
2) Open the pdf-maps app and locate the "+" icon (just the plain plus sign without the folder) in top right corner and select it.
3) Paste the link you copied from the email into the field titled "FROM THE WEB"
4) Select "OK"
5) Map should begin to download to your device.
6) When the download is complete, select the new map to open it.
7) Once viewing the map, select the symbol in the top left corner of the app that looks like cross hairs to turn on GPS function.
8) Enjoy!

At this point, you can operate without a data/wifi signal and always know where you are on your CartoTracks map!
