- Load the event map into PDFMaps:
- Run PDFMaps
- In the app, click on the + (plus) sign at the top of the screen.
- Paste the link that you just copied into the box “FROM THE WEB” and hit OK
The file will now be downloaded and processed for fast display. When it’s done, just click on the map name and event map will be displayed.
The event route is embedded in the map and is shown as a blue ribbon. There is no need to download any additional files to show the route. NOTE The file for each map is about 20MB, so you’ll need a bit of storage on your phone to accommodate it.
When the map is displayed, you can pan around by dragging your finger over the screen and zoom in or out by pinching or expanding your fingers on the screen. To go to where you are on the map, press the target circle on the top left (Android) or the arrow pointer (bottom left for iPhone or top right for iPad)
See Event Downloads for other files that may be of use in planning for the event.
- If you having problems copying the URL using the long-press on the map image, make sure that you are viewing this web page on your mobile device. If you’re using a PC or laptop, you will still be able to download and view the map, but it will not be available on your mobile device.
- If you don’t see your location (and you know that you are within the bounds of the map), your GPS is probably not turned on for the application. Here’s how to fix it:
- On iOS (iPhone, iPad), go to Settings>Privacy>LocationServices then on the list of apps, make sure that PDFMaps has the “Always” setting enabled.
- On Android, make sure that Location Services are enabled.
- If all else fails and you need assistance to install PDFMaps or loading the maps, please send a quick email to Graham Field by clicking here and include a contact phone number.
