SledMass Trail Map for iPhone and Android available at iTunes and Google Play Stores

The number one question we’re asked at SAM headquarters is “Where can I get a snowmobile trail map of Massachusetts?” It seems that getting the map into snowmobilers’ hands is a challenge. You have to go to a club meeting or hope that the local store has one in stock. We aim to fix that.

The number two question is about trail conditions, which, by the way, can be found in the forums at Bookmark that now, please!

While it may seem simple, the job of creating and maintaining a snowmobile trail map of Massachusetts is a colossal pain in the buttocks. I’m talking part-time job with a nasty boss. Sure, we have lots of volunteers but they keep pretty busy clearing and grooming the trails. And besides that, they know the trails inside and out. They don’t need no stinkin’ map. But I do.

SledMass Trail Map for iPhone and Android

No Cell Service Needed
This project has been a dream of mine for years and I’m happier than a shovel full of snow. What makes our app so unique is that once loaded onto your phone you don’t need a cell signal to navigate. I repeat, no cell service required. All 2,000 miles of map data will be preloaded onto your phone. So long as you can pick-up a GPS signal, you’re good to go. We do recommend that you install the app on your phone over WiFi, if possible.

The SledMass trail map includes many premium features:

  • Displays trails, junctions and spurs to amenities
  • Option for trail and junction labels, which can be toggled on and off
  • Statewide Trail Pass sales locations
  • Clubhouses and club meeting locations
  • Businesses and amenities, with info and phone numbers
  • Tap to call a business directly within the app
  • Parking areas, which can be toggled on and off
  • Background map choice of street or satellite view
  • Weather radar overlay (when cell reception is available)
  • Map will keep centered while riding. A simple but important function
  • Breadcrumb tracking records your trip
  • Mark and save waypoints to record key locations and landmarks
  • Create/tap a route to follow within the app, for those that plan ahead

Best of all, the app costs the same as the paper map and has far more sizzle. SAM’s trail app will be available in the iTunes and Google Play stores for just $4.99. We’ll also have microSD cards for Garmin GPS devices for $20.

But wait, there’s more… For you old-fashioned types, we still have the paper edition, which folds neatly into a pocket and never needs a battery or GPS signal. Enjoy!
