App Description

Footpath lets you map routes in seconds.

Whether you prefer the simplicity of running or riding without a phone, forgot to record a GPS track, or want to plan out your next hike or race, Footpath allows you to map out your routes quicker and easier than ever before, all without GPS.

It's easy:
• Draw your route and watch it snap to roads and trails.
• Press and hold on the map to automatically calculate routes between points.
• No roads or trails nearby? No problem, just zoom in and draw your routes free-form by tapping the magnet.
• View elevation profiles for your routes to gauge difficulty.
• Save your favorite routes for later. View up to 5 of your most recent saved routes at any time, or upgrade to Footpath Elite for no limit.
• Share your routes via email, Facebook, Twitter, Path, and Instagram.

Tips:

• Try zooming in for more accuracy
• If you need to route between unconnected roads, connect them by temporarily turning off snapping
• Tap "Loop" to quickly calculate the quickest route back to the start
• Tap "Out & Back" to automatically trace your route back to the start
• Try switching to driving mode to ignore trails & footpaths or to use highways. Perfect for road trips.

• Import routes from other apps. Send a GPX file to your device and use the common “Open In…” menu to open the route right in Footpath.

Footpath is designed for runners, hikers, walkers, and cyclists, but can and has been used for everything from kayaking & swimming to travel & road trips—even to land planning.
