Mapping / Navigating

Our preferred method of mapping is using an App such as Maps.Me. This is an app available for most smart phones with GPS capabilities. The app allows you to see your location and heading in real time. A high level guide to install and load a map is as follows

1 . Download and Install Maps.Me
2. When you open the app opt to save and use “Brisbane” maps.
3. Download the Medic Map for Maps.me here
5. After downloading the file, select the file and “open in Maps.me”. If using iphone you need to “share” the downloaded file to maps.me

Tips For Correct Use

  • Click on the star icon down the bottom of the app to view which tracks you are viewing. 
  • If you have used maps.me before click on the star icon. This will bring you to a list of maps. Make sure only the latest map is ticked so that you don’t have old maps loaded over the top of the latest map. 

Navigating to a point

You may wish to share your location or navigate to a shared location.

To share your location
  1. Click on the Blue triangle (your location)
  2. Choose share
  3. Share as a text message (entering the number or contact as the recipient)
To navigate to a shared location
  1. Click on the link in your text (the shared location)
  2. Choose to open this in Maps.me
  3. The target location is highlighted. Your current location is the Blue triangle which will move when you do.
