  • I’ve enjoyed BRMB books for years and used V1 last year. Am pleased that I can now import GPX files via the Web version. I have a large file with 142 tracks which shows properly on the Web version but when I Save it only the first 2 tracks are saved. Is there a limit to the size of Imported GPX files? Perhaps I have to break up the file into smaller segments. Sure like V2. I am using the Android version.

    • Hi Trevor, Thank you for the nice feed back. Have you tried our webmap for New V2 of Android? Is that were you are having problems with saving a bigger file? If you can send me more info, I can definitly have our Tech take a look and see. I sent you an email. Thank you

  • I have the Android app and so far very happy with it. I don’t see the “interactive web map” anywhere on the site. Is the web map included with the subscription ? Thanks.

    • Hi Rich,
      We are so pleased that you like your app.
      Which version of our app do you have? Version one already has a webmap at http://api.brmbnavigator.com/
      Version 2 of the app (released in October 2016), will have a webmap ready by the end of the year. And yes you get to use the webmap free with your subscription.

      Just login with the same username and password as the one in the app.

      • I have version 2 so I guess I’ll have to be patient : ) Another question – can I use the iOS version as well with my subscription ? I could use my iPad in the meantime to look at larger versions of the maps.

        Rich Reply
        • Hi Rich, we wish. Unfortunately Apple and google are two different stores and each have their own subscriptions. We might look info making subscriptions available to our customers through our site in the future, that way you would be able to use it on any device.

          Webmap is almost here:) I will let you know when available.

  • Where is the PRICE???

    Brad Reply
    • Hi Brad
      When you buy the app, you get to try the province of your choice at no additional cost.
      If you decide to keep using the app, it is then 0.99/month for the province of your choice including all our adventures on an Android device.

      On iPhone, or iPad, you download the app for free, then get charged 0.99/year if you decide to keep it. That only gives you the basemap though. You can then go to the province page, click on ALL ADVENTURES icon/button, and buy that for an additional price of 9.99/year. So you get the whole province and ALL its adventures for 10.98/Year.

    • Hi Ben,
      At the moment our app is only compatible with Android or IOS devices.

  • The app worked fine on my old iPhone 6, but I recently upgraded to an iPhone7 – the app loaded, but the mapping and activity (ATV) that I’ve bought and paid for don’t seem to be working – I’ve tried logging in and out, but no success – no BC Map or ATV trails.

    • Hi Alan
      You should now be able to put the app on the new device no problem. Please let us know if you still have any problems. Thank you
