The guidance in the newer downloadable manual supersedes any instructions on these pages.
See that manual from here:
Please note of the new overflow menu located on the upper right portion of the screen for devices with screen sizes that does not fit all the menus. On some devices (not many) you might need to use the system menu key to reach this menu.
Opening BackCountryNavigator for the first time
The first screen you will see when you open the app will be a Map Selection Screen.
*Ticking the[E] "I've learned this" box will keep this inline support menu from showing up during start-ups.
The first time you run BackCountry Navigator, you will probably want to accomplish at least two things.
- Choose a Map Source for viewing
- Center the Map on a specific place.
Choosing a Map Source
1. Click the "Layers" Menu
Then, The "Layers" options pop-up will Open; The 4 most recent map source you used would be displayed beside the word "Map Source" - it is a dropdown menu
* Internet Loading should be enabled if you want to "Stream" map sources; Turn it off if you want to use previously downloaded Map tiles.
Clicking "More Map Sources" will open up the map selections below. Clicking each tab will open up the various maps available per region.
Centering on a Place / Coordinates
When doing a search, the application will give you several options; specially when an area of interest has similar names/locations associated with it.
which will give you several options on how you would like to get on that place of interest.
(outdated screenshot - but should show the same options)
you can either choose to [A] Center on Coordinates [B] Create a Waypoint [C] GOTO Coordinates.
Centering on a coordinate / place of interest is as easy as clicking the Center on Coordinates (with matching coordinates based on format you currently use) option.
