Analyze your orienteering GPS track

Control is the perfect app for displaying your GPS track on an orienteering map.

Record the track with the Apple Watch app or import the route from a file or directly from Polar, Suunto or Garmin Connect. Add a map image and there you go! Think of the app like QuickRoute but for the modern touch screens.

Basic app is completely free to use. For more advanced features, get a Total Control subscription.

Get in Control.


This was exactly the app I was looking for years. As a Mac user I couldn’t use quickroute and this baby does the job even better. Everything can be done within the app take the photo from the map import easily the gpx track. What can I say more apart it’s brilliant!
