PLEASE NOTE: Your Outdoor Edition serial number is located inside the packaging that came with your Juice Pack. Do not discard your packaging before removing your unique serial number and the instructions. The SN # printed on the Juice Pack itself cannot be used for account creation.
Find the paper card that looks like an iPhone, and turn over the card. Your serial number is printed on a sticker as shown below. Go to www.registration.neotreks.com and enter the code in the serial number field as indicated. It can be used only once to create an account, and enter the number exactly as shown (with dashes).
Once in AccuTerra Map Mode, select the “Grid” icon in the upper middle part of your screen. A panel will appear at the bottom of the screen, and the map will zoom to a preset Continental viewing level. The selection grid will also appear on the screen.
Begin selecting Continental tiles for your area of interest. A tile Download counter in the bottom panel allows you to select up to four grids per download. NOTE: Although there is a limit of four grids per download, there is no limit to the number of Continental tiles you may install on the App – jut as long as you install them nine at a time. The limit of nine allows downloads without having to be connected to WiFi. Each Continental tile covers hundreds of square miles, and is approximately 512KB of data memory on your iPhone.
To select a tile, press and hold the screen over the grid you want. It takes about a second, you’ll see the grid turn green, and a Download counter will register the grid count (up to four at a time). To deselect, press and hold the tile again until the green color disappears.
Once you’ve selected up to nine tiles, press the “Download” icon on the lower panel.
Once the Continental tiles are installed for your area of interest, you can then zoom further into the map to reveal the State-level tiles below. The State tiles will zoom to a level where you can narrow your area of interest to towns, park boundaries, and other geographic markers. Continental tiles are for reference only – they’re not at a usable level. Trailheads, points of interest, campgrounds, and high-resolution tracking maps are contained in the high zoom layers below, so keep zooming in and installing the high-detail tiles.
Be warned – with hundreds of gigabytes of maps available, you can quickly fill your iPhone!
HINT: Although you can select a grid at any zoom level, installing the Continental tiles first will give you a much clearer idea of which high definition areas you will get.
Once you’ve selected your tiles, press the “Download” icon on the lower panel and watch as the images are installed on your map.
While in the “Grid” mode, select the installed grid you want to remove, then press and hold that grid until it turns red. The panel on the bottom will track the number of grids you wish to remove from memory.
Tap “Uninstall”, and the selected map tiles are removed.
When all grid installs / uninstalls are completed, tap “Exit Grid” at the top of the screen.
Place one finger on the screen and drag it in the direction you want to view. You can also swipe the view in any direction by flicking the screen quickly.
Press the “Locate” icon on the lower left side of the screen. Getting a GPS fix may take anywhere from a few seconds to several minutes.
Notes on the iPhone GPS capabilities: The iPhone 4 uses “assisted” GPS, which leverages the cellular network to acquire a location faster than using the GPS antenna alone. Acquiring a location may take longer when beyond the cell network, and obstacles such as dense forest, mountains and building can hinder a good GPS fix.
Place two fingers on the screen simultaneously and move them apart, or double tap the screen.
mophie Outdoor can install recreational points of interest within the coverage area of the maps selected from the Map Catalog.
Points of interest cannot be installed from the On-Demand screens. Select “Map View”, and locate your area of interest – that can be a whole state, a National Park, or one of our hundreds of other defined in-app products. NOTE - almost all of these bundles require connectivity to WiFi because they exceed 20MB in size.
Once you’ve installed a grid, the programmed recreational points of interest associated with that area are installed within your library. To show those points of interest on your maps, tap the small arrow just above the ‘Locate’ icon on the lower right of the main screen. A carousel bar will appear across the bottom of the screen, and you will be able to choose from 20 popular recreation categories to display over the top of the map.
Place two fingers on the screen simultaneously and pinch (move) them apart.
mophie Outdoor Edition enables you to create your own trails, walking tours, and waypoints, and save them for future reference. Tapping the “Track” icon on the upper right corner of the map initiates the Tracking menu within the right hand slide dock.
NOTE: Marker, Camera, and Stats are enabled only while in tracking mode (see below).
Tap the topmost ‘Rec’ icon (red circle) in the slide dock. The app may need to locate your position before establishing the beginning of your track. When your position is acquired, a blue pin will mark your starting location. Once you’ve begun moving, green pins will drop on the map to mark and track your position.
> The ‘Rec’ icon will switch out to a “Pause” icon (see “Stop and Save a Track”).
> The ‘Marker’ icon will now be activated (see “Record a Marker”).
> The ‘Camera’ icon will now be activated (see “Taking Pictures”).
> The ‘Stats’ icon will now be activated (see “View Statistics”).
Open the slide dock by tapping the “Track’ icon. Tap the ‘Pause’ icon - A menu list pops and you will be prompted with a choice to Clear the current hike, Save the current hike, or Resume the current hike.
> Clear - removes your current hike. You can start a new hike any time.
> Save - saves the current hike to your Adventures. You will provide a default name, which you can change by Tapping the ‘Name’ window and renaming your hike. AccuTerra also stores your hike according to the date and time of when you’ve saved the hike. You can also add a ‘Story’ to this hike to help remember or share the hike. When you’re ready to save, tap ‘Done’, then ‘Save’. Your track is now in your Adventures library.
> Resume - takes you back to your current hike, and continues to track you as you go.
(See the MAP VIEW section to find your Saved Adventures in your Library)
Tracking must be on ‘Record’ to use the camera function. Tapping the ‘camera’ icon allows you to take a photo (which you can discard and re-take) that will be geo-tagged to its location within your maps.
NOTE: In order for images to be saved in your Library, you must save the Track into your Library. Once you’ve completed your adventure (even if it’s just the photo taken), SAVE the track by selecting ‘Pause’ and ‘Save’ in the Tracking menu. Otherwise your image with not be saved.
The ‘Stats’ function only works while the app is in Tracking mode. The duration, distance, pace and elevation will be displayed in real-time. Move the page to the right by sweeping your finger right-to-left, and an elevation profile page is displayed.
Within the Track slide dock (tap the ‘Track’ icon in the upper right’), select the “Marker’.
> A yellow Marker flag is dropped in the of the map (your location), but you may also move the pin to another spot on the map by placing your fingertip on the flag and dragging it.
> Once positioned in the desired spot, tap the small blue arrow on the lat / long.
> The page will turn to a ‘Saving Marker’ screen where you may now give the Marker a name and story.
> To discard the Marker, tap the garbage can icon in the upper right.
Your Marker is now saved in your Library (see the MAP section). Note that Markers are saved in a separate folder. They are not embedded in a Track recording in order to allow you to share each Marker individually.
Tapping the ‘Clear’ icon removes any Markers or Track that are displayed on the map; but it does not erase those tracks and points from your Library.
Tap the “Search” icon on the lower right of the map screen. Type in a search by keyword or a city / state, and results will appear in order of distance from the center of the map.
The topmost icon allows you to switch from AccuTerra map views to either Google Maps ‘Streets’ mode or Google Maps ‘Satellite’ mode. You may track or insert Markers in Google mode, but be aware that those maps are web-served and only work with a cell or WiFi signal. Once installed, maps work independently with a GPS signal, and can even be viewed in Airplane mode (without GPS location).
On Demand map downloads are enabled while the App is in AccuTerra Map Mode. While tracking, panning and zooming can be done in Google Maps, the “Grid” icon providing access to On Demand is disabled. To switch to AccuTerra Mode:
> Tap “Map View” on the upper right of the screen
> A slide dock on the right side of the screen will appear.
> Select the top icon in the slide dock, and a menu will appear at the bottom. Choose “AccuTerra” from the list.
> The “Grid” icon will now be illuminated and can be selected.
mophie Outdoor is pre-loaded a catalog of hundreds of defined recreation areas – National Parks, National Forests, and other recreational areas.
All your saved Adventures and Markers are located within this function. Once you’ve saved a Track / Marker with a name, you can also search your library via a keyword search.
1. Navigate the iPhone to the screen you want to capture as an image (your Profile, or your Stats page)
2. While holding the Home button on your iPhone, press and release the Sleep/Wake button on the top of your device. Your screen will flash letting you know that the screenshot was taken.
3. Navigate to your Camera Roll library (Photos). The most recent image should be the screen capture you’ve just created. That image can then be emailed or uploaded onto your favorite social network.
Tap the name of your Adventure in the Library. Below the Name, Date, Type and Story of the Walking Tour, tap the ‘Statistics and Profile’ tab. Outdoor takes information from any saved trail and automatically generates a trail profile (distance and elevation gain/loss) and statistics for your current trail or any trail in your library. That information is displayed in two pages. The first page shows your hike statistics. Information includes elapsed time, latitude, longitude, elevation, compass heading, average pace (in miles per hour), and distance traveled. To see your trail profile, simply swipe the screen right-to-left from the My Statistics screen, and a graph is shown depicting trail profile of elevation gain/loss over the entire distance of the trail. To return to the trail description, tap ‘Back’ in the upper-left corner.
Also located within the Library icon within the Map View. Currently Outdoor only supports KML format (compatible with Google Maps and Google Earth). This allows new trails or complex tracks to be saved into memory. Imported tracks are displayed over top your AccuTerra maps or within Google Maps mode.
> Import Via URL: Many user generated content sites now provide direct links to open into Google Earth. Browse a website containing KML download trails (such as HUhttp://www.RedTrails.comUH) and select the blue Google Earth icon. This url can be copied directly and pasted within the URL field provided in the Outdoor app.
> Import Via Device: Share directly and automatically between nearby iPhones via Bluetooth or WiFi.
> Import Via Desktop: Your iPhone and desktop computer must be connected to WiFi. Select ‘Import From Desktop” and follow the directions on the screen. Type the address shown on the screen into a browser address bar, and a import screen will appear on your desktop browser. Locate your KMZ file and select ‘Upload’, and a confirmation should appear on your iPhone.
Select the “Settings” icon from the Map View slide menu.
To see the Legend, Tap the Legend section. A list of symbols and types of trails that are shown on the map are displayed with their corresponding labels.
In the GPS section you can also set your default units of elevation to English or Metric (feet/miles, or meters/kilometers).
GPS Accuracy Required – Setting the accuracy high provides a much more robust track, but may dramatically reduce battery life.
The Adventure Milestone Chime rings and buzzes when you’ve achieved a given distance. For instance, if you would like to be notified when you reach 1/4 mile, Tap the ‘1/4 mile’setting.
The Sharing Option enables you to set your Walking Tour Speed (the speed at which your Walking Tour replays).
Select from the list of options for delivery of your tracks via email. Please note that the track can be shared as a link, or as a KML attachment, but not both.
