1. Overview
The most accurate and reliable solution for the iPad, MotionX-GPS HD embeds the
functionality of an advanced handheld GPS unit into a simple and intuitive iPad
application. Use MotionX-GPS HD with your iPad during outdoor activities such as
hiking, sailing, off-roading, flying, geocaching, or exploring new places. MotionX-GPS
HD is exclusively designed and optimized for the iPad. While the WiFi iPad does not
contain a GPS chipset, many of the features are still useful in WiFi mode.

GPS requires a direct “line-of-sight” to communicate with satellites. Your GPS-enabled
iPad must have a clear view of the sky to locate at least three satellites in order to give
accurate position information. If you are indoors, in a wooded area, surrounded by
buildings, or in the back seat of your car, for example, you may be unable to acquire an
accurate GPS signal.

Track Types
A solid red line represents your path while recording a track with the
Track Recorder. Use the "Start Track", "Pause Track" and "Save Track"
controls on the MotionX-Track Recorder page to record and save your
track. (In MotionX-GPS v18.0 and above you may change the color of
your recorded track)
A dotted red line represents an interpolated path between two points
when signal has been lost.
A solid blue line traces your path when a GPS signal is active, but when
not using the Track Recorder. In the event that you forgot to start the
Track Recorder, you can still save these blue tracks to the Logbook. Press
the "Save Tracks" option in the menu that appears when you touch the
caliper button to combine all plotted tracks into a single track that will be
saved to the Logbook.
A dotted blue line represents an interpolated path between two points
when signal has been lost and the Track Recorder was not running.
A dashed green line from the arrow indicates the path to the waypoint
you have chosen as your destination using the Go To or Start Nav
buttons.
A dashed orange line represents a previously recorded track that is being
followed. A green start flag indicates the start of the track and a
checkered end flag indicates the end.

A waypoint is a set of coordinates that uniquely identifies a geographic location. From
this page you can create new waypoints and access your saved waypoints, sorted by
name, date, or proximity, and view the Auto waypoints and included POIs. Quickly view
your saved waypoints in a live map preview pane. Store up to 505 waypoints.
Waypoints are divided into three categories: All Waypoints, Auto Waypoints and Home
Waypoint. Waypoint folders allow you to group waypoints from a specific activity or trip
together. Included are folders for Recently Added, Import and Points of Interest, or you
can create your own custom folders.
New Waypoint: Create a
new waypoint using one

11. Compass
Leveraging the iPad’s built-in magnetometer, the MotionX compass shows such
information as heading, SOG (speed over ground), VMG (velocity made good),
distance, bearing, and time to waypoint, and ETA during active navigation. Mark
waypoints and start/stop navigation with a single touch.

Mark Wypt: Create a
waypoint at your current
position.
VMG: Velocity Made Good.
Effective speed at which
you are approaching your
waypoint
Direction: Current
direction of travel; True
North (T) or Magnetic (M)
Blue arrow: Indicates
the bearing to your
destination
Nav button: Start or
stop navigating to a
waypoint
ETA: Estimated time you
will arrive at your
destination
For the satellite-based compass (GPS mode) to provide an accurate heading, you should
be outdoors with a clear view of the sky and moving at least a few mph or km/h.
The magnetometer in the iPad is susceptible to magnetic interference from electronics
and ferrous metals. If an accurate direction cannot be achieved due to interference, you
will be instructed to move away from the interference and re-calibrate the
magnetometer by moving your iPad in a figure 8 pattern.

12. Map Downloads
Define an area of the map along with a range of zoom levels to pre-load onto your iPad
for offline access. Once downloaded, these tiles will be saved in MotionX-GPS HD
permanently unless you choose to delete them. Map tile sets are not included in iTunes
backups unless you configure to do so in Setup > Maps.
Go to Setup > Map Downloads to access the map download interface.1 Downloaded
maps are defined by an area along with a range of zoom levels to download, for use
when a network connection is unavailable. Once downloaded, map tile sets are saved
in MotionX-GPS HD unless you manually delete them.2
Maps are typically
downloaded faster via
Wifi.
Select a map type for
download. Map types
available for download
include MotionX Terrain
(from OpenCycleMap),
MotionX Road (from
OpenStreetMap), and
NOAA marine charts.
Due to Apple and Bing
restrictions on maps, these
maps types cannot be
cached or stored onboard.
By contrast, MotionX road
and terrain maps and NOAA
marine maps may be
cached and stored onboard.

Map caching and map downloading are two similar but distinct features. Both improve
map performance and enable offline map viewing. Map caching automatically saves
tiles viewed on the Maps page as you scroll and zoom. The cache limit is 1024 MB;
beyond this limit the oldest cached tiles are overwritten as new tiles are cached.
2
Cached and downloaded maps are not included in iTunes backups unless you
choose to do so; cached maps may be cleared via Setup>Maps. Installing iOS updates
will delete your cached and downloaded maps unless you enable backups in
Setup>Maps and create a backup prior to installing the iOS update.

Area & Zoom Level Definition
Select by Area: define a
circular area of map tiles
to be downloaded. This is
useful for large areas
such as national parks or
entire cities.
Select by Route: Use
this option to define a
longer, narrower area.
Useful for pre-loading
map tiles along a hiking
trail, for example.
Touch and drag the red
square to adjust the
circumference.
Drag the map from
anywhere to adjust the
center of the download
area. Pinch-zoom to
adjust the zoom level.
Min/Max Zoom: Adjust
the min/max zoom levels
for which you'd like map
tiles downloaded. Higher
numbers represent a
more zoomed in view.
Thus the number of tiles
and total memory
required will be larger at
greater zoom level
numbers.
Total Size: Estimated
size of the tile set you've
selected.
Memory display:
• Amount of used disk
space on your iPad.
• Estimated tile set size.
