Do you know these moments, when you remember your mountain experiences and you automatically have to smile? When your body begins to tingle and you’re just grateful for the things you’ve experienced? We too! Therefore, we have a suggestion for you: You can also remember and enjoy these moments afterwards by recording previous hikes and tours in your digital tour book. It’s very easy: On the SummitLynx website as well as in the app you can add previous activities and thus experience these moments of joy again. Here you learn how to do it.

Please note: Retrospectively added hikes will not be used in the evaluation for the hiking badges.

Tip: If you activate your mobile location data on your smartphone, you’ll even get a notification for missed check-ins in the app. You only need to confirm them!

Adding entries retrospectively in the SummitLynx app:

  • Please log into the app and click onto the yellow pin button “+” in the tour book. (If you are directly at a location in our database while you do this, please go to the map view and choose there the list view with the button on the right upper corner.)
  • There, you’ll get an overview list. The easiest way is to enter your hiking destination in the search field above. As soon as you type in the first letter, a list with possible destinations appears.
  • If you click onto the destination either in the list view or the map view, you get to the input interface for the entry.
  • In this input interface, you can choose the date and time, when you actually went on this hike.
  • Under "Additional information” you can add further information, for example, if it was a hiking, biking, climbing or ski tour or if it was a winter hiking tour. You can also add information about weather conditions. Furthermore, you can enter your time of exercise as well as the achieved difference in altitude.
  • With just one click onto the button "select image" you can add a picture to your entry, as usual.
  • Of course, you can also complete your tour book entry by writing a few lines in order to record your memories even more precisely.
  • To save your entry in the app, please click onto the button "Create checkin". Now the entry has been added to your overview.
