YouTube™ videos of your routes

Seeing photos of a trail it's a great way to get an idea of how the surrounding and landscapes of the route look like, you may even see which terrain you'll find. And since more and more authors are adding nice photos of the routes (almost 10.000 photos already) I'm glad to announce that we may additionally add YouTube™ videos of our GPS tracks. This is a new feature that we may use to better describe our routes.

Here you have one of Tom's kayac trips in Norway:

New updates

Well... frankly this time I don't know where to start. Recently we've released a major redesign of Wikiloc with so many improvements that I think the best way for you to see them is by doing a tour by yourself :)

You may find specially interesting new features like:

- New map page: improved browsing experience to discover new tracks
- A revamped upload process: now it is easier and faster to upload tracks
- A new KML feed to explore and easily discover routes with Google Earth
- Almost 9.000 tracks uploaded until now, 9000 photos and we're already a growing community of nearly 10000 members.

So thanks to you all that make possible wikiloc. So far we've received many great suggestions that are the basis for upcoming improvements, so feel free to contact me at jordi ,at, or in the forum

and... stay tunned, more changes are coming :)
