Full version and lite version
Thank you for purchasing OkMap Mobile or for installing the corresponding free version
OkMap Mobile Lite.
In Lite version the following features aren’t available:
 Managing of custom maps in KMZ format
 Adding of TMS/WMS custom maps
 Recording of tracks and sending the position to a remote server
 Managing of STRM altimetric data
 Managing of Cloud
Custom maps (KMZ)
The custom maps in KMZ format differ from those online, provided by servers from various
manufacturers (Apple, Google, Microsoft, Nokia, etc ...), because:
They are offline, so always available even without a connection.
They are raster, so can represent the morphology of the territory in a much more
attractive way than any other vector map.
They are thematic, so meet the specific needs of many categories of users using the
app during their outdoor activities (search and rescue, hiking, biking, off-road, sailing,
flying, fishing and hunting, search mushrooms, geocaching, soft air and many others).
Are easily producible, even from a paper map, using the free software OkMap
Desktop.
STRM elevation data
The STRM elevation data (Shuttle Radar Topographic Mission) let you know the altitude of
any point of the globe recognized by the mission (from 56 ° South to 60 ° North). The set of
data defines the Digital Elevation Model (DEM).
The resolution in the US is one second of arc (about 30m) while in the rest of the world is
three seconds of arc (about 90m).
The data is organized in files, each relating to one degree of latitude and one degree of
longitude and are freely downloadable from the internet.
OkMap downloads on demand the files relating to any point on the map, creating a local
archive of elevation data of the favorite places.
Thus OkMap is able to show the altitudes of the points on the map in the status bar with the
coordinates togheter and uses these altitudes to create waypoints and tracks, allowing to
create the elevation profile of a track in the planning stage also.
Knowing the altitudes, OkMap can calculate the estimated travel time of the designed tracks.
The elevation data can be interpolated to obtain more accurate values.

Requirements
To get the full functionality of the software you must activate:
Settings – Privacy – Location Services => On
Enable the use of geolocation. Disabling this option, the GPS cannot be turned on.
Check that this feature is also enabled in OkMap application, in the app list below.
Settings – General – Background App Refresh => On
Enable track logging even when the app is in the background.
Check that this feature is also enabled in OkMap application, in the app list below.
Screen organization
The OkMap Mobile app is designed to be
installed on both iPhone and iPad devices.
In addition, the app can work in either portrait
(vertical device) and landscape mode (horizontal
device).
The choice of the device orientation, horizontally
or vertically, is essentially personal and depends
on your habits and on the type of information
you are viewing; the positions of the elements of
the page are automatically adjusted, based on
the orientation of the device, for readability.
Below there is a toolbar with icons corresponding
to the main pages of the app. This toolbar is
hidden when you are viewing secondary pages.
When you are viewing a page, the icon is colored
green instead of white.
The main pages are:
Map
Waypoints
Trip computer
Tracks
Compass
Routes

Map
Page organization
The page contains the following elements:
Background containing the chosen vector map (the section Choosing the map explains
how to change the map).
Overlay drawing of Custom maps (KMZ) (not present in the Lite version).
Overlay drawing of GPX data (waypoints, tracks and routes).
Box on the top containing the navigation indicators (to find all available indicators see
the Trip computer page).
Orientation of the map on the top right (appears only if the map is not oriented to the
north).
The scale bar on the bottom right represented by a segment that corresponds to a
linear measure unit.
Custom maps (KMZ)
Custom maps, which we discussed briefly in the
Introduction, are contained in files with
extensions .kmz.
OkMap Mobile manages one or more KMZ files
simultaneously.
KMZ files can be easily installed on your iOS
device using the procedure described in the
appendix Transferring files between a PC and the
device.
KMZ custom maps are drawn as overlays on the
chosen vectorial map.
If the map was produced with images in PNG
format, transparency is handled.
Overlapping custom map images are drawn in
the order defined in the KMZ file.
Remember that the custom maps can only be
used in the full paid version of OkMap Mobile.

Waypoints are drawn with the icon
.
Tracks are drawn with blue lines; the beginning and end of the track are drawn with
the icons
.
Routes are drawn with red lines; route waypoints are drawn with the icon
.
The colors of the track and route lines can be customized in the Settings page.
Tapping a waypoint icon makes a balloon appear with the waypoint’s name and the
corresponding altitude. Pressing the icon
opens the Waypoint form page.
Similarly, tapping on the start or end track icons makes a balloon with the track name
appear, indicating if it is the start or the end of the track and showing the track length.
Pressing the icon
opens the Track form page.
