If you've ever used a GPS or mapping app, then you need to know how to move your content around. It takes less than a minute to transfer that content into goHUNT Maps and your data will be seamlessly synced over to our mobile app— it's just as easy whether you have waypoints, tracks, lines, areas, or any other combination of them.
Also, we just released goHUNT Maps for iPhone. The Android version is right around the corner. Get early access to goHUNT Maps when you join INSIDER.
Once you become an INSIDER, you can head over to the App Store and download goHUNT Maps and log in using your INSIDER account. The Android version is right around the corner.
How to import waypoints, tracks, lines and areas
We'll start with importing and talk about exporting next.
If you're more of a visual person, you can check out the video above for a walkthrough of this simple process.
No matter where your files are coming from, the process is the exact same.
Start by making sure you are logged into your INSIDER account. Then click on Maps.
On the lower-left corner of the screen will be an “Import” button.
Click that Import button and a toolbar will appear for Importing Files.
You can either drag and drop your .KML or .GPX file to that box or just select your file from your computer.
You will then see your “Selected File” and the file size.
Now click on the orange “Import” button.
You’ll now see a confirmation page that shows that your import was successful.
From here, just click “Done” and you will now have access to all your imported information. You can access it in your “Saved” content area, or from the collection automatically made for your import.
How to export your data from other sources
Exporting from other mapping apps
If you are using a different mapping application: Log into that service, go to your content, and select everything by clicking the select all button, which will grab all your waypoints, tracks, lines, polygons, etc.
Then you will need to click on an Export button. You can save your hunt information either as a .KML or .GPX. Either format works.
That file will then be saved to your desktop or wherever you saved it to.
Exporting data from Google Earth
Once you have Google Earth open, on the left toolbar you will see “Places.”
In that area, you probably have a folder with your waypoints, tracks, lines, etc.
To export your data, you will want to right-click on the folder, then click “Save Place As.”
Now you can name your export and the destination you want to save it to. For convenience, it is typically best to save it to your desktop for ease of finding it.
Note: be sure to change the extension of the export to .KML.
Next click “Save” and your files will be saved to your desktop.
Exporting from goHUNT Maps
There are times when you might want to export your content. The process for this is very simple. Just use the bulk edit tool (the arrow at the top of the web version of maps) and then select the waypoints you want to export from a certain hunt.
Next just select "Export" and then you can select whether to export as a .GPX or .KML file.
