What’s missing? There are over 7,000 miles of trails in the Granite State, so you can expect to find a few instances where the data may not be 100% accurate, but that’s not for a lack of effort. The trails committee will continue working with clubs to improve the product. In reality trail routes are always in flux but that’s the true beauty of a digital map: it can be updated in real time to reflect the best data available.
You’ll also notice that services are somewhat limited at this time. The main focus is club facilities, fuel and parking areas. There will be opportunities for businesses, such as lodging, restaurants, stores and services to advertise their location next year, 2021. The plan is to open a channel for clubs to sell digital ads, which will help fund the trail system that snowmobilers and businesses depend on.
What are the online web map functions and how do they work?
What are the mobile app map functions and how do they work?
Open the mobile app, click on the menu icon in the top left to access the Help section. Common questions are listed below.
What mobile devices are compatible?
Updates should only be installed when a reliable online connection is available. Wi-Fi is best. Data interruptions during updates may prevent the app from functioning. If you receive a notification to update, do so only if you have a reliable cellular or Wi-Fi connection. Otherwise dismiss updates and install later. Updating on the trail is not a good practice.

I bought the app on my Android device, but would also like to use it on my iPad (or vice-versa). Do I have to buy it again in order to do that?
We do not currently support cross-platform purchases. That means you can use the app on your Android phone and tablet at no additional cost since the purchase would be linked to your Google Account (or to your Apple account for iOS devices).
Why are there are no services/amenities displayed in the app (gas, food, etc)? They used to be available in the online trail guide.
The services and points of interest are disabled by default on the very first opening of the app to speed up the process. You can selectively turn them on through the Search menu, which will make them appear on the map.
The trails/maps are not detailed enough. The quality of the map was better in the online trail guide.
We chose to limit the resolution on the map for a better offline performance, reducing both storage and processing power requirements. We will include the option to enable higher resolution maps in the future for users who wish to have them. Stay tuned!
My GPS location is incorrect on the map and/or is not precise enough.
The precision of the GPS functionality depends on a multitude of factors, including the quality of the GPS signal in a specific area and the strength of the GPS chip included in your mobile device. For an optimal performance, the app should be used outdoors with a direct line of sight to the sky. It won’t work well inside a building and will be limited in a car. (This is true for any GPS receiver, not just for mobile devices).
I bought the app last year, but it does not reflect the current state of the trails. Why is that?
The app is valid for the season in which it is bought. Next season you can purchase the new version to access the up-to-date trail map. Club volunteers maintain the trails and map information, without them riding would be impossible. Show your support!
