iOS - SityTrail mobile applications / Trail timings reported incorrectly?
« Last post by livfoss on July 13, 2016, 03:20:20 pm »
I have produced a series of trails of a trip through Holland by bike. I just noticed that the reporting of the time by the "Calculate" operation on the Editor seems to generate wrong results, unless the Editor cleverly notices when one has stopped moving (as a bike computer would do). In one example, the difference between start and finish times in the raw GPX file is 432 minutes, but is reported as 189 minutes!

Is this a bug or a feature?
This morning I upgraded my iMac to Mac OS El Capitan 10.11.5, and I then opened the SityTrail Editor and downloaded a trail which I had been working on yesterday. I made a couple of small changes (total distance, some text) and tried to save, but the 'save' action won't terminate - it just says "Please wait". I have tried this on the most recent versions of Safari, Google Chrome and FireFox and the result is always the same.

I then tried to print the trail using the Open Street Map maps  (the only one that I can use since the trail covers two countries), and instead of seeing the whole map, I saw a small amount of real map, plus a series of tiles with the 'MapQuest' logo and a text explaining that something changed on 11 July.

Can you help with these two issues? I just don't know how to proceed.

I have not analysed the original GPS data, but I could. My guess is that there will not be any inaccuracies of this magnitude, and the information displayed on the iOS app is just wrong. Would it help if I did this analysis?

Sorry, this feature is not available on the editor.
But we note your suggestion for the next update.

The elevation is computed from the data of the iOS GPS device. It May Occur Sometimes Some inaccuracies , DEPENDING on the GPS coverage of the road you do . In forest , elevation will be less precise for instance.

We are working on elevation profiles that works with NMT data . If you send your trail on our servers , the elevation data will be replaced by the NMT data , becoming more accurate. The uphill and downhill information will be also more precise.

For elevation profiles on smartphones and tablets , we are still working on it .

It is possible to change the colour of the trail recording using the editor - for example from red to blue, to avoid confusion with existing map elements like main roads. However, when I try to print, the trail colour always goes back to the original red. Is there any way to make the colour 'stick'?

I've just done a cycle tour in Holland using SityTrail NL. The GPS recording of the route on the map is accurate as always, but the summary of the elevation data is nonsense! For example, on one daytime summary, the app says I did 1427m uphill and 2643m downhill. Holland is notoriously flat, and has a lot of territory a few metres  below sea level! When I put this data into the SityTrail editor, it is soon corrected to uphill 118, downhill 115. The elevation profile ** from the GPS** pretty much looks like this more credible data. Is this a bug in the iOS app?

When you encounter such a problem, the best way to solve the problem is to invert the trail, to draw the missing part to the starting point of the trail and then to invert the trail again.

Before starting to walk, it is better to check that the GPS has found a valid location on the map (the counter starts counting only when it has found a valid location).

Thank you.

Best regards.

SityEditor / Can I move the start and end points?
« Last post by Fififeuilla on April 03, 2016, 11:32:32 pm »
Hi, I saved a route but for some reason the counter did not pick up the first part of the track (hence creating a start point 1/4 of the way into the trail).
I managed to autofill in the missing part of the route, and the end point magically moved to the start point! But now I need to move the start point + end point back to where I started the trail in reality (not where the counter started counting). Is there an easy way to do this? If not, I guess I will have to do the walk again - but in that case how can I ensure recording has really started?
Thanks very much for your help. I'm struggling a bit, but basically love the app!
