Back in 2009 we released My Tracks, an Android app that uses your phone’s GPS capabilities to visualize your location over time for sharing in Google Maps and Google Earth.
We’ve used My Tracks to follow team HTC-Columbia during the Tour de France and trace the paths of our skiing adventures. A year after launch we open sourced the software and released the code to the world for developers to use in their own applications. Now, we’re happy to announce that My Tracks 2.0 is available for download on Google Play.
My Tracks 2.0 comes with a variety of new features, including:
- The ability to play back your tour directly on Google Earth for Android
- Aggregation of statistics over time to show trends in your performance
- Simpler, faster user interface
- Improved charts and stats tables that are easier to read
