The bottom bar in the main screen is the dashboard:
In the center of the dashboard you can find a panel with counters. There are three panels
The circles below the panel indicate the selected panel. By swiping a panel with one finger to the left or the right you can load the next or previous panel.
The units of the meters on the dashboard can be changed via Menu > More > Settings > Units. You can choose between metric, imperial, and nautical units.
The hiking panel is ideal for walking and is shown below:
Speedometer, altimeter and direction meter¶
The speedometer (km/h symbol top left) indicates the your current speed.
If tap the speedometer the average speed while recording a route will be shown. This is indicated by the symbol ‘avg’ direct above the ‘km/h’ symbol.
If tap press the speedometer once more, your maximum speed while recording a route will be shown. This is indicated by the symbol ‘max’ just above the ‘km/h’ symbol.
If you finish recording a route and start a new recording, the average and maximum speeds will be reset.
If you press the speedometer once more it turns into an altimeter. Your altitude in meters above sea level will be shown. This is indicated by the symbol ‘alt’.
If you tap the altimeter, the direction meter with the symbol ‘dir’ will be shown. This indicates the current direction with respect to the true north.
If you tap the direction meter, it will turn in the speedometer.
Route distance meter¶
The route distance meter (-.- km top right) indicates the length of all routes that are loaded on the map, including planned routes. If a route has been loaded the symbol ‘rte’ appears just above the ‘km/h’ to indicate that this is the distance of a loaded route.
If routes have been loaded and you tap the route distance meter, the map will be centered on the loaded routes.
If you are on a route, the route distance meter will automatically change to distance to go (dtg). If the ‘dtg’ symbol is shown the meter indicates the distance to the end of the current route. If you tap the meter in that case, the map will be centered on the route that you are currently following.
The record timer (–:– h:m bottom left) indicates the time you are recording a route.
If you tap the record timer you can start, pause and stop a route recording. If you are recording a route the symbol ‘rec’ appears just above the ‘h:m’ to indicate a recording is active.
Record distance meter¶
The record distance meter (-.- km bottom right) indicates the length of a route that is being recorded. By starting a recording you can see with the record distance meter how far you have been traveling. Above the ‘km’ symbol appears the symbol ‘rec’ to indicate that this is the recorded distance.
If you tap the record distance meter while recording a route, the recorded route will be centered on the map.
In the cycling panel your speed is somewhat more emphasized and your altitude can be seen directly. The cycling panel looks as follows:
In the center you will find the speedometer that functions in the same way as in the hiking panel. Tapping this meter will also change it.
On the top left you will find the altimeter, that indicates your altitude above sea level in meters. This is indicated by the symbol ‘alt’. Tapping this meter can also change it, exactly like the speedometer.
In the bottom left the record timer is located.
The route distance meter is located in the top right.
The record distance meter can be found in the bottom right.
With the coordinates panel you can straightforwardly read off coordinates from the map. To open the coordinates panel, slide the panels in the dashboard to the left. An example of the coordinates panel is displayed below:
If the coordinates panel is loaded, a cross appears in the middle of the map, as is illustrated below:
The coordinates that are displayed on the coordinates panel are the coordinates of the point in the middle of the cross.
By moving the map you can position the middle of the cross to the point of which you want to determine the coordinates. To quickly determine the coordinates of your current position, you can center the map by pressing the position button on the left hand side of the dashboard.
If you tap the coordinates on the coordinates panel, the coordinates will be shown in a different format.
If you press long on the coordinates in the coordinates panel a pop-up will appear in which you can choose to copy the coordinates to the pasteboard or to share the coordinates.
