Waypoint 4.1 Released

Waypoint 4.1 has been released.  This update adds the following features:

Proximity Alerts
Proximity alerts allow you to be notified when you are apporaching your waypoint.  This alert can be configured in the Edit Notifications menu item.  There are 4 preset distances to choose from: 30, 50, 100, and 150 meters.  When the proximity alert is enabled and triggered a system notification alert message will be displayed in notification bar.

Notify user if GPS sensor is not enabled
Waypoint will check if the GPS sensor is enabled and if it is not, the user will be prompted to enable the GPS sensor. If the user decides to enable the GPS, the Location and Security menu is displayed where this setting can be changed.  Once complete, they return back to Waypoint.  Waypoint will remember if the user enabled the GPS sensor and prompt the user to disable the sensor on exit, but only if the Back button is used to terminate the application.

This version resolves the following issues:

Directional arrow rotation issue
The directional arrow was not rotating properly on all screen resolutions.  Thanks go to the user that pointed this one out.  With a little help from the Android emulator to simulate multiple screen resolutions, this one was resolved.


  1. Hi,

    I would like to as a question whethere there is another way how to install the Waypoint Pro application?
    The Google Market search does not show your app for me in the list for some reason.
    I can see the app and it's description on Androidzoom and other websites but neither the QR code nor the Market search works.

    Any suggestion is appreciated.

    Thank you in advance.


  2. What version of Android are you running and where do you live. Waypoint Pro is targeted for Android 1.6 and higher and is currently only available in the following countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Ireland, Mexico, Russia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, United Kingdom, and the United States. If you are running Android 1.5 or are outside any of the countries Waypoint is not available.

  3. Thank you for the quick answer. I live in Czech Republic so that explains it.
    Do you plan to release the application in other countries or is that decision not up to you?
