Tips & Recommendations

  • Once you create and activate your account, you can test it by creating and sending a report titled *TEST* (including stars!). This will not be published on the portal, but you'll find it on your profile page in the Reports tab, where you can view, edit or publish it, or delete it.
  • To switch between the various pages (Terrain Management, Map, Weather), click anywhere on the upper blue bar with the title.
  • The submitted report will appear automatically on the front page of this portal. You can find your messages in the portal, in the Reports section of your account.
  • If you send an unintentional message from the app and want to hide it from the portal's front page, you can either delete it yourself or write us at posli@nabezky.sk and we will unpublish the report for you.
  • The map used in the app is downloaded from the internet. If you want to ensure that it will be available outside where there is no signal or your mobile plan does not include mobile data, review the area of the planned trip before departing on your trip. The reviewed map area will be saved in the phone memory and will also be available in places without a mobile signal (Internet access).
  • To turn tracking, switch to the Map screen and touch the pencil icon in the top left corner. Recording is active if the icon color changes to orange. When the icon is pressed again, the recording will stop.
  • The track recording in the GPX format can be found in the phone memory in the 'on-line' directory (Android only)
  • The weather forecast is downloaded for a place marked with a yellow dot in the middle of the map. Clicking on the localization icon at the top left will move the map to your current location.
  • Clicking the weather icons (cloud, sun, etc.) on the Weather forecast screen will display a description of the icon's meaning.

Note

  • The application is not currently being developed, but it can change if a programmer with interest to collaborate is found.
  • The reward of "points" information that appears on the page after the message is sent is no longer valid.
