The strength of TrackMyTour, is to be very fast to create a point on the map. Just take a photo, who will be geo-localized and dated, write a small text if desired and upload the point on the time or save this point to the poster when you will be connected to internet.
We can easily manually adjust the position and date if the tags are missing from picture.
When several points on the map, these are connected by a line and the ride takes shape. obviously, there will be more points, more representation of the route will be accurate.
One can create his card from the website of TrackMyTour and therefore TrackMyTour is also accessible to Android users from the website. The only advantage of being on iPhone, This is to prepare the points offline for the post once you're online again.
Creating a new "waypoint" (way point). You can add a text, the point type, weather and manually set the date and position if necessary.
When taking a picture directly from the app or as a picture from its library is chosen, TrackMyTour automatically retrieve its GPS data and the date the photo was taken.
