FishingMobile, with Two Minute Tackle

Contents

The Location screen in FishingMobile has an integrated Google Maps service. Users can search for a location, switch between map and satellite views and quickly jump to saved locations.

The Location screen requires that the GPS or location service be turned on to experience the Google Maps navigation features.

Waypoint

A waypoint refers to single location. Using the integrated Google Maps feature, users can save the coordinates as a waypoint. These coordinates include longitude and latitude.

There are two types of waypoints in the FishingMobile app:

  1. Regular waypoint
  2. Route waypoint

Regular waypoint:

The regular waypoints on the map are separate from the waypoints you add when creating a route. Regular waypoints could be used for marking good spots, ramps, anything really. They are a general purpose tool. The regular waypoints don't carry over when you create the route waypoints.

To create a regular waypoint, Tap Location from the Home screen:

  • Tap on the balloon icon shown at the bottom left corner.
  • Tap Use My Location to allow the app to pick the current GPS location. You can also manually give GPS co-ordinates by choosing Enter GPS Coordinates.
  • Give a name for the regular waypoint and tap Save.
  • A red balloon will appear at the location as an indicator. A quick tap over the red balloon will give you the options to edit or delete that waypoint.

Route waypoint:

You can set a route waypoint while you create a route. One or many route waypoints are used to form a route.

Steps to create a route along with route waypoints:

  1. Tap Location from the Home screen and tap on the Routes button shown at the bottom right.
  2. Tap Create new Route to set a new route.
  3. Give a name to the new route and press Save.
  4. The saved new name will appear under Name and now tap on Waypoints. The waypoints set in a route will be applicable only for that route. You can create multiple routes by repeating the same steps later.
  5. You can create a route waypoint by long pressing on a location over the map.
  6. A red balloon will appear as an indicator that a route waypoint is set.
  7. If you need to set more than one waypoint, repeat step no. 5. A route waypoint will be created wherever you do a long press. You can edit or delete each route waypoint. Press Save.
  8. Tap on the newly set route.
  9. Tap Track shown at the bottom bar. The indicator will turn green to notify that tracking is now enabled. To stop tracking, tap again at Track.

By enabling tracking, users can view traveling speed, distance to next route waypoint, total distance and estimated time to reach etc. The FishingMobile app depend on the GPS location service to show these details. Make sure the location service is allowed for FishingMobile through settings.
