SonicMaps 2.4 now available

As part of our ongoing efforts to provide you with the most reliable and feature-rich sound geolocation platform, SonicMaps has been updated to include a number of improvements that you can start enjoying today.

Version v.2.4 - Changes

  • New option in Editor to add supporting text and images to sound zones. This visual information is displayed as an info-card in the SonicMaps Player when the a walks into a zone.
  • Revised playback system. Any sound zone will now turn grey if its audio file has finished playing and user remains inside that zone.
  • The number of editing groups has been increased from three to six groups in order to facilitate complex projects.
  • New method to set the default map style (i.e. dark, light or sat) using a URL parameter. For example
  • Downloading a project for offline listening is now 95% faster and requires only half of the storage space in your device.
  • New option to disable remote listening and force on-site GPS navigation. This option prevents a user from listening to a project using the walk simulation mode (person icon).
  • Mobile battery life optimisations. GPS tracking is only used while strictly necessary to reduce battery drain.

Version v.2.4 - Fixed

  • Player stopped tracking GPS position and/or playing sounds after the app was suspended (e.g switching to a different app/tab or minimised). Location services and audio engine are now restarted if necessary when app regains focus.
  • Pause button remained visible even if an audio file had ended and no other sound zone was playing.
  • Sound areas did not load/play for a second time after reloading walk without an internet connection (offline) - iOS only
  • Other minor bug fixes.
