Introducing the new grid view

Posted by Breadcrumbs on July 21, 2011 under Features, News | Be the First to Comment

Organization has been a key focus of the gobreadcrumbs GPS track management app and the tree view has been at the heart of that, providing a great way for you to visualize and organize your tracks.

You can quickly move tracks between bundles by dragging and dropping…

…and delete and rename tracks directly within the tree view by right clicking on the track and accessing the menu.

Grid View

As the number of tracks you imported increased it became apparent there needed to be a way you could quickly access tracks and sort based upon the track name, activity, date imported and bundle name. So we created the grid view. The grid view is accessed by clicking on the grid icon just above the tree panel (see screen grab below).

The grid view provides a completely new way for you to find and interact with your tracks. You can sort by several different columns. My personal favorite is the date imported column as you can now import a track and access it instantly by viewing the grid view (we sort by date import by default).

Sort tracks by date imported, title, bundle and activity.

So login and give it a go, you may well end up finding tracks and reliving adventures that you had long forgotten about! Thanks to everyone who gave feedback asking for the feature too.

Embed your GPS track on your blog or website

Sharing your GPS tracks with your friends and family is one of the great features of Breadcrumbs and it just got even easier! Breadcrumbs’ new plugin functionality allows you to embed the GPS track you uploaded directly into your own website/blog. The plugin allows your visitors to see on a map both the GPS track you uploaded from your Garmin device or GPX file and any associated photos/videos that were geocoded. For the first release we support the Google Maps view, support for the full 3D Breadcrumbs experience using the Google Earth plugin will come soon.

New Embed button within the app

Embedding the GPS track into your website/blog couldn’t be easier.  Simply upload your GPS track and any associated media as you would usually do. Once uploaded select the track and then click on the new ‘Embed track’ button, this gives you the HTML code you need to copy and paste into your own website.  You can also access the code on the public page.

See the new widget in action below. Don’t forget to post a link with the widget in action if you embed a track on your website/blog.

Announcing the launch of our new public track page

Posted by Breadcrumbs on March 11, 2011 under Features, News | Be the First to Comment

Here at Breadcrumbs we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our completely redesigned public track page (showcased here). One of our main aims at Breadcrumbs is to allow you and your friends to relive your adventures. The new public page does this by putting you in complete control of your track interactions and associated media. At the heart of the redesign we have introduced a new media view which puts your photos and videos as the main focus.

We also have a load of other great new features including:

  • Map, elevation/speed chart and statistics dynamically integrated: As you playback your track, watch the statistics and chart change. You’ll be able to tell exactly how fast you went on the steep line you skied or the trail you rode. There is no better way to visualize your GPS tracks.
  • Google Maps playback: Now play your track back in Google Maps as well as Google Earth.
  • Comments: A new Breadcrumbs comment system allows you and your friends to chat about your day out.

Don’t take our word for it, check out this track and let us know what you think!

3D experiences are everywhere  - cinema, computer games, TV… Breadcrumbs is all about reliving your adventures, and we put 3D at the heart of the experience by building a cutting-edge platform around Google Earth. Everyone loves the desktop experience Google Earth offers, but until now you have not been able to share your adventures in 3D. Breadcrumbs allows you to do this and much more.
