    HI all

    I wanted to provide an update on this app. We have continued to progress the project and currently we are recruiting 4wders to help collect baseline data. Initial focus will be on capturing track data for Victoria, with a focus on the High Country region.

    Please yell out if you are interested in providing GPS track data (you might already be recording your tracks). We will be offering free use of the app (including premium features) on launch for those who contribute.

    Many thanks

    James.

    Will this be Apple or android? I'd be keen to run some tests on the Apple. Are you assuming that your app will run as the primary mapping package and GPS? Surely it must or swapping between hema or mudmap to your app would be come clunky.

    I'm keen to do some testing in the high country for you on an iPad no worries.

    The only good thing about an 80 series is..... the front end?? Wrong!!, the Engine?? Wrong!! the Full Time 4WD system?? Wrong!! Its the NissanPatrol.com.au stubby holder fitted over the transfer lever.

    Thanks MudRunner, we intend on releasing the app on both IOS and Android but may make use of 3rd party apps for collection of data whilst ours are being built.

    Our vision is that Newtracs will be the only navigation app you will need but we will look to build in functionality to allow you to use Hema and other popular map formats in the app also. Hema make paper maps and digitise them to use on a mobile device - our core offering will have a feel similar to Google maps, but with more accurate track info.

    I will PM you with details of how you can contribute.

    Hi bigguwesty, 4x4 earth seems to aim to provide track reports, but my experience with it is that the reports are not comprehensive or updated regularly enough. Our app will be able to infer the condition of the track users tackle without their active input. In this way we can provide regular updates of track conditions to a wide number of tracks. In addition we aim to offer other useful features like track difficulties tailored to your rig setup, route planning, and location of free campsites.

    Hi all

    Quick update on progress - we have further progressed with development and have gained access to a huge dataset of GPS track logs covering most of Australia. This will represent our baseline dataset and we plan to have something out in the market by October.

    I have been doing the rounds visiting 4x4 club member meetings (in Vic) to spread the word and gain valuable feedback. Support from the community has been fantastic, showing a real need for this solution.

    We have also built a prototype analysis engine which can ingest standard GPX track logs to figure out where problem areas are along tracks. Difficulty is based on comparing performance of cars and their respective setups.

    Check out the mock up screenshots in the galley on our website at www.newtracs.com.au/gallery

    Cheers
    James

    James just on your analysis engine , im guessing this will be ultimately what will grade track difficulty autonomously.

    How does this differentiate between say a driver taking it easy and crawling up or down difficult terrain vs a driver who limiter bashes it and goes as fast as they can all the way through the same obstacle?

    Surely if it was partly a time based kind of analysis that it could be completely wrong in grading of the track.

    Hope you get what im saying.

    Awesome idea mate! Very hard though from recent experiences found up there in the Vic-HC. Planned burnoff/dozer blokes keep moving their signs without thought of the 6hr open track crawling start point to get there :-( !

    G'day mate, just seen your thread and have to admit you have done really well for the third degree some have given you. I understand your motives and think it is a great project. I've tried to sign up in your website but either my internet connection is piss poor or your servers are inundated with people signing up =P

    I'm definitely been to be a beta tester for your app. Also, if your an avid 4wder and available you should drop by on our August forum Meetup in licola? Would be a good opportunity to show people how your app works?
