Downloading maps

The following step-by-step instructions show how to generate maps on the nogago portal and install them on your device. Steps 1 to 4 only have to be run through when you use the nogago Web Downloader for the first time.

Of course you get maps on the fly while using nogago Outdoor GPS online. But, offline maps are faster and more reliable in the field…

1. Go to our map-download page and search for your desired location or city.

2. After clicking the Download button, you will be redirected to the Map-download page. By clicking the “Map” button, you go to step 3.

3. As the following screen shows, the nogago Web Downloader will start (open as a java programm) or be downloaded automatically. To be able to execute this java application please ensure java se is installed. (Java SE for Windows/Mac)

4. You will be asked where to save your maps locally and where on your Blackberry device. You can select the according folders manually or by autodetermining the directory for your smartphone device.

There are some additional features like a spotlight, we think it could be very helpful in the field, don’t you?

2. If your device is connected to GPS you can immediately record a track using the controls you may know from you cd player. Press ‘record’ (the round button) and nogago Outdoor GPS will track all your movements. Simply chose your activity and name a track:

3. See direction, distance, speed, altitude. It’s not happening too much if the nogago team goes out for lunch, anyway. Just to let you see what’s the deal with the  few screens of nogago Outdoor GPS.

Panel

Also you can edit what’s to be displayed on this panel in Options, from just one up to nine items of values synchronistically such as current speed, average speed, maximum speed, acceleration, distance travelled, distance in lap, distance to go, distance to waypoint, current time, elapsed time, time in lap, sunrise, sunset, time to go, time to waypoint, current altitude, average altitude, maximum altitude, minimum altitude, ascent/descent, latitude, longitude, magnetic variation, quality, course, horizontal acceleration, vertical acceleration, satellites:

4. Next screen: Altitude difference in proportion to speed. That’s very good to know if you are hiking or cycling or skiing in the mountains.

Profile of your activity

5. Follow, analyse or resume your tracks. This is what it looks like when the nogago team is outside doing extreme lunching. 😉

Follow track

6. Stop recording and upload your track to nogago.com! Your tracks are being stored on your sd card by default. But you also can upload them to nogago.com to share them or just save it.
