onX Offroad Releases Fat Fingers Mode

Eliminating tap ambiguity with industry-first technology

onX Offroad today announced the newest feature, Fat Fingers Mode, is now available on both Android and iOS app versions. One of the company’s top requested features, Fat Fingers Mode will leverage industry-first technology to eliminate tap ambiguity and help users select trails and drop Waypoints with precision.

onX Offroad is a pioneer in off-pavement adventure navigation. The app is built for off-roaders by off-roaders, and immerses users into a world of possibilities–including 550,000+ miles of trails and 500,000 recreation points. Trip planning features let users review trail descriptions, assess difficulty ratings and trip durations, and check out route photos. By sharing customized Waypoints and Tracks, users can invite their friends along for the adventure and mark places they don’t want to forget.

“For years we’ve heard onX Offroad members lament about a time they shared the wrong Waypoint or selected the wrong trail, ending up in the wrong place,” said onX Offroad GM Rory Edwards. “I’ve been there myself, and frankly, it’s embarrassing. We’re excited to debut this new feature, ensuring that users of all finger sizes can reliably select trails and Waypoints on their screens.”

onX Offroad Premium and Elite users can find Fat Fingers Mode in the app’s settings. Once selected, the app will ask to measure the users’ dominant pointer finger, and automatically adjust the tap ratio accordingly. 

“After wrenching on a vehicle all day, no one wants to fumble around with a finicky screen experience,” said onX Senior Product Manager, Eric Evans. “We’re proud to debut this self-learning technology to our users–it’s an industry first. Fat fingering is in the past.”

Fat Fingers Mode is yet another major update from onX Offroad, as their team works to continually improve the user experience and functionality while helping drivers go farther, with confidence.
