  • Print/export to PDF. There are 2 print modes:
    • WYSIWYG – the printed area is approximately the display area. The map zoom level doesn’t change.
    • High-Resolution – the zoom level changes so the whole content (tracks/waypoints) fits into the printed area, and the map resolution is as close as possible to the print resolution.
  • Multiple tracks in one view.
  • Full screen mode.
  • HiDPI/Retina displays & maps support.
  • OpenGL support.
