Warrington, PA (PRWEB) June 26, 2013
Gogal Publishing Company announces the first smart phone app designed specifically for Pennsylvania anglers.
The GPS Fishing Guide to Pennsylvania features an interactive GPS fishing map displayed over roads, satellite images or seamless 7.5 minute USGS topographic maps. Streams and lakes are color coded to highlight those waters offering quality fishing opportunities with every stream in Pennsylvania included.
Integrated GPS functions allow users to view their current location, record custom waypoints, target destinations, receive turn-by-turn driving directions and use their phone as a handheld GPS. Distance and compass bearing to targeted destinations are calculated and displayed to aid in navigation. When no phone coverage is available, maps can be stored in advance for offline use.
Almost 5000 predefined fishing destinations can be searched and targeted for turn-by-turn navigation. Each destination includes a detailed listing of fish species, fishing regulations, ramp information, boating regulations, seasons, size and creel limits. Search menus enable users to target destinations by water name, stream section, fish species, fishing regulation, boat ramps or boat motor limits. All search results are returned in distance order from the user's current location. For travel planning, search results can also be set to list in distance order from any town in Pennsylvania and results can be saved to favorites for later recall.
"As a Pennsylvania angler," commented Mike Gogal, company president, " I wanted to create an interactive phone experience for Pennsylvania fishermen incorporating the best aspects of the Fish Commission's website, quality fishing maps, and the power of GPS in one single fishing tool for smart phone users."
While the app is primarily designed for Pennsylvania's anglers, it includes nationwide topographic map coverage and both custom waypoints and GPS navigation can be used throughout the US.
The GPS Fishing Guide to PA is now available on iPhone and Android for $24.99. Search, "GPS Fishing Guide to PA", on the App Store or Google Play. The price includes free updates and no additional fees or subscriptions are required.
A no obligation, Free Trial Version of the GPS Fishing Guide to PA for Android is also available on Google Play. The free trial allows the use of all of the app's functions for a period of three days.
