Arrow LiteTrack - ver 0.7 - new features

Important: Uninstall previous versions and DELETE any map previously downloaded with Litetrack, they're not compatible with v0.7.
Saved tracks and POIs are still compatible.

what's new in 0.7 version:

- No more tiles' limit in map's download.
- Map is saved as a single file, to save space in your SD
- User's location added to Track viewer, to walkback even without map
- New scrolling system
- Bugs fixed, all regional settings (should be) supported
- Mobile Cells localization and caching

About Cells localization: even without GPS you will have an idea about your location. This feature can be enabled or disabled from settings. How it works: any new phone cell encountered is added to the app database; if online, also cell's location is obtained and added to database. (*)Cells' locations can even be added later (menu -> tools -> Update). Once the cells are registered with their locations can be used offline also.

* This means you'll be free to go around and around staying offline, LiteTrack still collects info about phone cells encountered (but don't forget to enable it from settings). Once at home, turn online and update the database, all the cells previously collected are now ready to be displayed on the map and used offline. In other words, you will have your personal database of mobile cells!


LiteTrack is the right tool to record your route, save off-road paths, retrace a journey, obtain detailed gps data, or simply get your position on the map. All staying offline!
UI attractive, finger friendly, real full-screen usage.

Features (what you can do with LiteTrack):

- Display your position on the map
- Download maps from OpenStreetMap sources directly to your device
- Track your routes, also off-road, and save them to files
- Obtain track's statistics, also in realtime
- Append new tracks to existing track files
- View tracks in a separate context (Track Viewer)
- Export tracks to GPX and KML
- Save your current position as a new POI
- Attach comment and picture to your POIs
- Import tracks and POIs on the selected map
- Get detailed GPS info (lon, lat, alt, speed, heading, DOP, hDOP, vDOP and more)
- Display charts about satellites detected
- Obtain specific data about each satellite (id, azimuth, elevation, signal strength)
- Gadgets feature: get weather forecast, compass, clock and system monitor
- Mobile Cells localization and caching

Requirements: WM 5, 6, 6.1 or 6.5, touchscreen with VGA or WVGA resolution (640x480 or higher), .NET CF 3.5

Hope you enjoy all the new stuff!

If you like this app please consider to eur, or usd, the amount you prefer. Thank you!

Hello Xdaid,

Unfortunately I'm not able to use this jewel on my HD2 for several raisons:

- the zoom level is limited (only one level) therefore to select the area for downloading the map is impossible; the range selected is too wide, therefore I've a message "out of the range" or "latitude S cannot be lower than latitude N" even if I change it manually

I've tried to select area from top left to bottom right or vis versa but same result.

I really need this kind of soft for off-road tracks in the beautiful desert of UAE

Can you help on this issue?

Thanks and regards,

Thumbs up Neat! Will Try!

Will give this piece of software a work out, meanwhile is it capable of GSM triangulation? If not is it coming anytime soon?


1) Sennheiser- best audio quality seen till date, good budget oriented, audiophile headphone would be PX100.
2)ATi graphic card amongst the most flexible, sapphire best maker, (of which one is better, nVidia or ATi, it long on going argument)
3) Network services, Sevice Provider, Airtel the best in India, Vodafone comes second, BSNL/MTNL third, worst would be !dea. (This point valid only for Indian readers.)

No luck with Omnia2 i920 version.
GPS "on" leads to "error page" ,press details program shuts down.
I tried soft reset.
Started "Bing" first to get GPS working. no luck
soft reset no "Bing",no luck.

Looks like a nice and easy to use program.

Thanks for the efforts.

To Romeo Fox

Consider that
1) max size is 1000 tiles per map, in respect of OpenStreetMap rules.
2) at first launch of LiteTrack you have a global map, not detailed at all.

Well, to get detailed maps of towns and small areas follow these steps:
1) take an area from default map (e.g. your country or state) and download.
2) open the map just downloaded, select the area you're interested and download again. You will have more zoom options now.

Hope this help.

To HD2 users

I'm getting opposite feedbacks, there are hd2 users saying it works, and other saying it doesn't. I'll try to find the point and solve any issue.
