iOS - SityTrail mobile applications / Re: Height recordings apparently wrong!
« Last post by brassechr on July 12, 2016, 08:05:28 am »

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'?

iOS - SityTrail mobile applications / Height recordings apparently wrong!
« Last post by livfoss on July 11, 2016, 10:25:01 am »
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!

Dear customer,

Our old Geolives website has been stopped.

It is being replaced by new SityTrail applications, which are already available for Belgium, France, Spain, Switzerland, Spain and the Netherlands.
These new applications allow you to access all the maps of one country on the Web and on mobile devices (Android, iPhone / iPad) with a yearly or a monthly subscription.

More information :

In order to purchase a new subscription :

Unfortunately, these new subscriptions are not yet available for Ireland because we have not come to a financial agreement with OSI.

For more information about the closing of our old website and how to transfer Geolives PC Editor to a new computer, please visit this website (soon available in English) :

Thank you.
SityEditor / Route plan

I attach my own web site link which I use to convert Gpx files to a viable route plan for my own use, using ANY Gpx file, with sensible limits.

It accesses Google Elevation if that is unavailable and NOAA data for magnetic variation  and  human walk rates built on years of experience with a club walking factor.

It clearly deals with Garmin files which don't have elevation information by adding that info please try that and  it automatically adds that info to produce a pdf formatted downloadable Route plan for me.

Try it by loading a Gpx file, or you are free to and evaluate it, try with any < 40 waypoint route!

May be interesting

Can you please send us a screen capture of this problem to the address ?

Can you please also try to uninstall and reinstall the application from the AppStore (after backing up trails to the server if they haven't been sent to the server yet)?

Thank you.

Best regards.
