FAQ

Q. Where are the physical map download codes?

A. Physical cbgtrails.com maps are planned to begin appearing on trails in the Crested Butte area in the summer of 2015. Until then maps can be easily accessed and downloaded from the list of nearby maps or searching for them.

 

Q. Why is my GPS location not shown?

A1. It sometimes takes a moment for your device to fix your GPS location...wait for it.

A2. Is Airplane mode turned ON? iOS and some other devices turn GPS OFF when you turn on Airplane mode ON. So first try turning Airplane mode OFF.

A3. Is something blocking Global Positioning Satellite signals (e.g. are you in a building, behind a cliff, or under a large piece of furniture)?

A4. Does your device have a GPS chip? Some devices like WiFi-only iPads can only show your location in areas with WiFi.

A5. Use a third party "GPS Status" app to determine whether or not GPS satellites can fix your location.

 

Q. Why is the map app not showing map tiles or behaving erratically?

A1. Try refreshing the map app by pressing “Refresh”.

A2. Full or even nearly full device memory causes problems for most any app. For iOS, go to Settings>Generals>Storage. If nearly full, “Manage Storage”. For Android go to Settingss>Storages and make more memory available.

A3. Ensure that you always download map apps via the cbgtrails.com button you added to your homescreen.
