0:35: Route calculation by walk on hiking trails. It is also possible to do route calculation for car or bike (Thanks Google!).
1:34: Elevation retrieval when editing the track (Thanks MapQuest!)
2:22: Quick save of track file by drag&drop.
Very quick and useful but it works only with Chrome.
Be aware there is a known small bug with drag&drop in Chrome: if you start dragging the track and stop the action very quickly (few tenths of a second after), all opened Chrome applications are frozen. This issue occurs in every web apps that uses this technique (ex: GMail with an attached file).
The bug is filed here. Do not hesitate to “star” the bug to make Google fix it.
The goal of this blog is to give me tools to better communicate on MyGPSFiles .
Currently, the MyGPSFiles website contains only 3 pages: one page for the app (/app), one description/doc page in English (/en) and the equivalent page written in French (/fr).
The description page is quite compact. I do not want to write on the MGF’s life on it.
I provide some information on the Facebook page.
Facebook is useful. Nothing to install. People are automatically notified about news. But the post format is quite limited. Moreover, information gets lost in the timeline and we cannot rely on Google to find it.
This blog will help me to communicate with more details.
I still use Facebook & Twitter. They are the 2 communication channels you can use for feedback, bugs or improvement requests.
