Dog Tracks helps you to lay and follow up your tracks and markers.
With Dog Tracks you first walk the track and lay the markers. When the track is finished you will see a map of the track with the markers. A summary will show the length of the track, number of markers and the time it took for you to walk the track.
When your dog walks the track Dog Tracks will draw a new track on the map and automatically mark the markers your dog finds. You will see the track you walked and in real time follow your dog's track.
After you and your dog have walked the track you will see a map that shows both tracks, which marker your dog has found, track length and time. You can log weather and wind conditions and also write your own comments.
Dog Tracks requires that Location service, GPS and Mobile Data is enabled on your phone.
Used for SAR training 1st time. Could instantly email tracks to mission manager to combine with other teams and tracks.
...but it appears the markers isn't exported when sending the track to others.
Purchased a year ago and it worked well on my Samsung Stratosphere. Upgraded my phone and cannot import my old tracks. I added a new dog yesterday and two new tracks, and today the new dog is missing and I can't open the tracks. Reinstalled the app and lost all new tracks saved to this phone. Very unhappy now. New phone is a Samsung Galaxy 5.
Unable to email a saved track, this is why i bougt this app a second time( allready bought this in appstore aswell for my iphone) unable to find support anywhere. When clicking on email it brings me to the home menue of the app. Also i get two apps one called dogtracks and one called dog tracks, why?
Easy to use. Nice way to journal your tracks easily. I look forward to the ability to post on facebook, would be nice to be able to email as well (like when tracking with others so they can have their track).
Absolutely love the new Android version of Dog Tracks. It lets me easily lay a track and then track it with my dog. I know exactly where I laid my track no matter how long it has been. The new detailed summary page is great. Thanks so much.
Love this app. Only suggestion would be an option for a 'third' track, perhaps marked in green: When going over the route after the dog has finished working in order to collect articles & markers, it would be helpful to have a real-time GPS guide to show where on the track you are. When trying to follow a completed track to collect missed articles, I needed to guess where I was because the map was no longer 'live'.
The app, do the job, simple and effective. I wanna make a danish translation :)
This app works well when you have good GPS signal. The creator has also been helpful & added an option for yards vs meters. I
Didn't work for my phone. Nexus 6 android 5.1. Willing to try it again if it gets updated
