    I have been using the my tracks app for my Droid phone .Whenever I go in the woods I record a track. It was great while I was scouting. Recording my routes then uploaded them to my goggles maps. The problem I'm finding now that I'm hunting is when I sit in place for a while. I wind up with lines all around the area I'm sitting. Kind of like I'm walking all around the area when I'm actually sittin g. When I look at on the map its like a big blotch of lines in that spot. Anyone else have this problem

    I've never had that issue. Did you update it?
    You can do a lot more for the environment by carrying a rifle then carrying a sign.

    Just a thought but maybe it's just the natural movement of the Earth in relationship with the satellites. Deffinately can throw off elevations . JMO.

    No I haven't but haven't.I Thought it updated itself I'm going to have to check that. I have only had installed about 2 months.

    I thought about that one.I was also wondering if it had to do with the satellite strength changing and it thinking I'm moving . Idk its just kind of annoying and makes my map look like crap

    Cell phones do not have the best signal recieving & the lines are the devation of your phones tracking.
    The act of killing is visceral .......

    I've got my tracks and cabelas recon, so far I'm liking recon better, but still not enough use to make a decision.

    I'm thinking I like my old exploreist 200 basic and simple. lol

    I like idea of the realtime satellite view and being able to upload your tracks to goggles maps but it does kill your phones battery. I'm going to have to check out some of the other apps

    I have been trying out cabelas recon hunter. It's a pretty cool app and I like the features. But it seems I get allot of map loading errors
