Welcome to the wonderful world of the Great Indian Trail – your single resource for the best routes across India. The Great India Trail is a repository of curated routes from across India, in the form of KML/GPX files.
Navigating the Great Indian Trail
To begin with you will need to choose a device on which to view/use the KML/GPX files –
– GPS Devices
– Android phone
The main choice is between using a dedicated GPS device or using a mobile phone with GPS capabilities.
Whatever device you use, get to know the app and how it works on your device.
Make sure you use it a couple of times before your big trip! It’s a gadget and there’s always the chance of bugs/quirks.
Note:- Mapping apps will have a navigation or route record option to prevent the screen from going to sleep while on the trail. We recommend a power source for your device as constant GPS usage can drain your battery.
