    Petit Poucet: Neat at-a-glance map for use while walking

    I did not develop this app.

    Website: Petit Poucet, a free GPS Map application for Android

    Reddit.com thread by the developer: I needed a better application than Google Maps to help me find my way back while walking. So I made it.

    Petit Poucet is a replacement of Google Maps with some features that you need when you walk, features lacking in the original application.


    With Petit Poucet you can

    • from time to time, simply put a marker of your position, just with one thumb
    • look at your altitude
    • survey the compass
    • look at all markers in order, for example, to retrieve the point where you left your car
    • review the time between two markers
    • survey the state of the GPS satellites used for the positioning
    • look at the circuits made before, long after, as each circuit and each marker is automatically saved
    • rename or delete, when you want, any mark: just click on it on the map
    • retrieve the location of a mark by clicking on it on the list

    And this is simple, the application having been designed by a hiker who didn't want to sit and look at his Android device, but just pick a look when needed. Petit Poucet is available on the market, but you can download it from here if you prefer : Petit Poucet for Android
    Don't forget that this application is free : if you use it, take the time to send a kind message to denys.seguret@gmail.com. I'm always available for discussions about new features or bugs.

    Thanks for the offer and I do like you app. I've used it on my daily walks (again, just to play with the droid as I walk in either a park or my neighborhood). I used it today on a little fishing trip to mark a "hot spot".

    Thanks
