1. Overview
The most accurate and reliable solution for the iPhone, MotionX-GPS embeds the
functionality of an advanced handheld GPS unit into a simple and intuitive iPhone
application. Use MotionX-GPS to track outdoor activities such as hiking, running,
biking, sailing, skiing, or any other activity where you want to track your route. It is
also ideal for geocaching and for sharing the coordinates of your favorite locations.
MotionX-GPS takes full advantage of iOS 4 with support for multitasking. Record your
tracks in the background while making a phone call, listening to streaming music, etc.

GPS requires a direct “line-of-sight” to communicate with satellites. Your iPhone must
have a clear view of the sky to locate at least three satellites in order to give accurate
position information. If you are indoors, in a wooded area or surrounded by buildings,
you may be unable to acquire an accurate signal.

For the satellite-based compass (GPS mode) to provide an accurate heading, you should
be outdoors with a clear view of the sky and moving at least a few mph or km/h. The
magnetometer in the iPhone 4 and 3GS is susceptible to magnetic interference from
electronics and ferrous metals. If an accurate direction cannot be achieved due to
interference, you will be instructed to move away from the interference and re-calibrate
the magnetometer by moving your iPhone in a figure 8 pattern.

Track Types

A solid red line represents your path while recording a track with the
Track Recorder. Use the "Start Track", "Pause Track" and "Save Track"
controls on the MotionX-Track Recorder page to record and save your
track.

A dotted red line represents an interpolated path between two points


when signal has been lost.

A solid blue line traces your path when a GPS signal is active, but when
not using the Track Recorder. In the event that you forgot to start the
Track Recorder, you can still save these blue tracks to the Logbook. Press
the "Save Tracks" option in the menu that appears when you touch the
caliper button to combine all plotted tracks into a single track that will be
saved to the Logbook.

A dotted blue line represents an interpolated path between two points


when signal has been lost and the Track Recorder was not running.

A dashed green line from the arrow indicates the path to the waypoint
you have chosen as your destination using the Go To or Start Nav
buttons.

A solid orange line represents a previously recorded track that is being


followed. A green start flag indicates the start of the track and a
checkered end flag indicates the end.

backups.

Downloaded maps are defined by an area along with a range of zoom levels to
download, for use when a network connection is unavailable. Once downloaded, map
tile sets are saved in MotionX-GPS permanently unless you manually delete them.

Map types available for download include MotionX Terrain (based on OpenCycleMap),
