Chart Personal Journeys with LiteTrack

As his first contribution to the XDA community, member xdaid has created a very useful application which makes the most of your Windows Phone’s GPS capabilities.

LiteTrack allows you to record and store paths and journeys as you take them; ready for playing back when you want to take the same route again. Such a function is ideal for someone who frequently travels ‘off the map’ with regard to traditional GPS mapping applications. For example, a much-enjoyed walking route is very difficult to plan on turn-by-turn navigational software.

The application uses the OpenStreetMap repository, so that you can update and add to your library of maps without having to pay a fee. This also means that you can use the application without a data connection provided that you have already downloaded the relevant maps. Some of the information that LiteTrack is capable of recording includes your altitude, speed, heading, latitude and longitude to reassure you that you won’t get lost.

This app will work with your device provided that you it has GPS capabilities, a WVGA or VGA touchscreen, Windows Mobile 5.0 or later and .NET Compact Framework version 3.5.

You can find LiteTrack and more information in the original application thread.

ben_duder is an editor on XDA-Developers, the largest community for Android users. Hi! My name's Ben, and I'm proud to be one of the news writers at xda-developers. I live near London and have spent the last ten years wasting all the money I get my hands on on new gadgets with which to fulfil my technolust. I first got into HTC phones when I found a Lobster 700TV (the HTC Monet) at a very good price, and I'm ashamed to say that I couldn't have cared less about what operating system the phone was running as long as I could watch The Simpsons on the bus. As fellow Monet owners might know, the 'TV' part of the phone's alternate title was somewhat deceiving and was completely abandoned by the service providers in England. However, by then I had already fallen in love with the freedom Windows Mobile had given me. After the Monet came a Universal, with a Touch Pro following that. I've just bought a G1 (yeah, I know, get with the times!) because I'm really interested in Android as a budding operating system and don't think I could ever cope with a 'dumbphone' now that I know what's on offer. Although I haven't contributed much to the site in terms of programming or cooking help, I hope that I can give a bit back by letting you guys know what's new through my articles. If you have any questions, suggestions or complaints about those articles, feel free to get in touch with me via PM using the URL above. View ben_duder's posts and articles here.
