Multiple Wayfinding Choices for New, Returning and Current Riders
• Interactive Trail Guide Goes Live Today
• Go Snowmobiling Apps Available December 1
• District Trail Guide Availability
(Barrie. ON; October 29, 2020) – As part of its Trails To Ride 2021 plan to deliver the best possible riding experience this winter, the Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) is providing an update on ride planning and trail navigation tools. These include the Interactive Trail Guide, Go Snowmobiling App, TrakMaps for Garmin GPS, and district trail guides.
The OFSC expects its digital planning and navigation tools to be increasingly valuable to snowmobilers this winter, and to be especially helpful for the many new riders expected on the trails. These wayfinding platforms are updated regularly throughout the season to show current trail availability, a feature not possible with printed guides.
(Barrie, ON – December 2, 2019) – The Ontario Federation of Snowmobile Clubs (OFSC) has released the Go Snowmobiling Ontario 2019-20 App. With the success of the GSO App last year, we’ve taken rider feedback and added some exciting enhancements and new features for the upcoming season, including:
- Optional views (portrait, landscape and 2.5D);
- Location sharing enhancements;
- Ride planning, saving and sharing;
- Real time location sharing;
- Access to trail accessible and nearby amenities and attractions;
- Optimized performance and battery usage; and
- Increased zoom detail
- Riders will be able to download district views to have more detail available while in remote areas without cell services.
Most importantly, snowmobilers will have real-time access to trail availability information from their mobile device.
For only $3.99 a season, snowmobilers can purchase the app from either the Apple or Google Play stores.
To show our appreciation for use of your land and to protect you during the off-season, we will be turning off trail data on the Interactive Trail Guide and Go Snowmobiling Ontario App in the next few days.
Snowmobilers, we’ll be back on line closer to the start of the 2020 snowmobile season.
