Outdoor enthusiasts can now experience nature like never before with this official mobile guide powered by Pocket Ranger® technology. This all-inclusive app offers an environmentally friendly way to explore, camp, hike or bike. Users can decide which park or forest to visit using a comprehensive list of activities or search for nearby locations within a particular region. Advanced GPS and GIS Mapping technology invites users to track trails, mark waypoints, and locate landmarks in the great outdoors, while interactive features guide users and keep them informed.
Users can access rich GPS features, such as:
•Advanced GPS Maps with State GIS (Geographic Information Systems), which allow users to access trail data, record tracks from hikes, runs, or bike rides, and view elapsed time and distance traveled.
•Easy-to-cache GPS Terrain Map tiles, which ensure that navigation remains possible in the event of lost mobile reception.
•Photo waypoint feature allowing users to snap a photo and mark and record the coordinates of plant life, animal species or landscape views. Post or share these remarkable finds with family and friends with the click of a button.
•Friend Finder feature that allows users to keep track of friends and family along the way.
•Built-in compass to help users navigate.
•Potentially life-saving Alert feature that supplies users’ GPS coordinates to designated contacts in case of an emergency.

•Thorough information on the facilities including general policy, contact information, activities, trails, park maps and much more.
•Detailed, cacheable maps of facilities, trails and campgrounds.
•Up-to-date news and information on state park advisories and weather information.
•Sharing features that allow users to share current positions, waypoints and recorded tracks via Facebook, Twitter, or email.
