Return to latest news

We've been busy behind the scenes updating the Map My Tracks Android app which, we are thrilled to announce, is live and available to download from Google Play.

Map My Tracks - Android

So what’s new in this update - v4.1.2?

Cleaner, clearer high resolution maps - It’s now a lot easier to see street names and other features with the new Street map style. High resolution map tiles also make each map clean, clearer and sharp. As before, you can set your preferred map style in the app’s Settings > Display section.

Optimisation - The app has been upgraded and converted to work great on Android 9. As a result of these changes the app is now more responsive with faster page loading all round.

Data validation - Due to various changes in recent versions of Android some, but not all, devices need to allow Map My Tracks to run in the background. We’ve added in data checks to detect if your activity has been recorded fully. In the event that the app detects irregular data it will now suggest that Map My Tracks is allowed to run fully when used in the background.

Various layout improvements - The app now makes use of your device’s full screen to provide a great experience on all pages. A host of other small refinements are dotted around the app.

We hope you like the updated Android app which can be downloaded from Google Play.
