[MeeGo Harmattan] Track@Way : Track Your Way !

Posted on 1:03 PM by SlipKoRnSaad

Track@Way is the successor to FreeTrack. Whatever reference you have for FreeTrack, you arrived in the right place now!



Track@Way is an Open-Source (released under GPLv3 license) application for mobile phones which lets you track your way using the embedded GPS in your mobile phone (or, where supported by the phone, an external GPS antenna).

Many use Track@Way (spelled "track-a-way") during their sport activities, some uses it during their travel to geoference their photos, some use Track@Way just for fun! Myself, i use Track@Way for my sport activities and leisure vacation.

Suppose, for example, that you go out for trekking in the mountains: Track@Way in its most basic usage can record where you have been so that you can review later your path, project it on a map (check gpsvisualizer.com for a free converter tool for Google Maps and Google Earth) or even reuse it as a guide for your next trekking in the same area!

If you have some more time to set up Track@Way, you can add a map to it (check the map section of the forums for some maps aready available, or just use the maps that you already own) and check your position on the map in real time...

Track@Way uses your phone internal GPS receiver or an external Bluetooth GPS antenna, if you have one, to find your position. It can use A-GPS or simple GPS devices, it can also use network-based localization if it is available on your mobile.
