Navigating with rakkup is much more than just looking at dots on a map. Only rakkup steers you precisely down the right trails and turns with an easy-to-follow arrow and a moving map view. Other guidebooks just give you a short textual description of an approach, or show you a blue dot on a map with no information about canyons, dead-ends, or trail quality. In rakkup, we’ve combined state-of-the-art GPS navigation programming with extensive data about every climb and trail. Each rakkup guidebook includes a detailed map of the entire trail system. The app instantly and continuously calculates the best route from your current position to your climb, even taking into account fourth- and fifth-class approach options, and gives you turn-by-turn guidance. A compass with an arrow, and a moving map, always tell you where to go and keep you on track.
