iOS CalTopo - Export Track?

Jeff's Avatar

I'm using the beta version and can't find a way to export a track as a GPX file (so I could email it to someone). Did I miss something? Is there a way to export a track directly from the app.? (I suppose I could access the track on the desktop and then export but I'm wondering if there is a way to do so from inside the app).

    Jeff, please see my attached images for the location of import and export.

    Thanks for the reply.

    My problem originated in pushing the "create track recording" without first opening a map (Just read the fine print under create track more carefully). I was trying to work with a track that does not show up as a "line" under "Map Items".

    Am I right that if I want to export tracks made by using the "create track recording" that I must first "Save Map" (to create a named map)? In effect, for a SAR operation, this would mean saving a map before taking to the field, and then pushing the "create track recording"?

    Thanks again!

    I think right now to export a GPX directly from the app you do need to save it to a map I'll debug and play with this a little today. However no matter what you can export a GPX from the web interface. If you click on your user name in the top left corner it will bring up a prompt that includes "Your Tracks" and you can export from that interface. If you're a member of a SAR team that is using our team accounts you can also access tracks from the team interface/maps which may eliminate your need for import/export. (More on that at
