I just cant understand why the app dosen't simply show my current location on the map when I'm browsing others trails.
This looks so simple to me and so important and usefull.

Sometimes I am in a trail and I see another path in front of me.
Then I want to find if other people have alredy passed this new path so I start browsing, but I get totaly lost because I dont know in the map where I am when I am browsing other trail.
I see a lot of trails but I dont know if is near or far from me.

So I have to stop my current tracking, load into the map and then see how to get to the start.
though i am not interested in the start, supose I am in the midle of it.

I dont know if I'm doing something wrong.

(Sorry about my english)

thank you

Can't you look in advance if there are other trails in the neighbourhood, when you are still at home?
That is the way I do it.

Yes, but this looks so simple.. why they dont improve the app?
This app can be much powerfull with some simple new features.

Not everything what looks simple is simple.
You have to deal with load times on places with many trail and bad internet connections

nop, just to show your position on the map does not requires even internet signal;
