Bronco Trail App Now Available

Bronco Trail App Setup & Usage

Check out the new Bronco Trail App exclusively for Bronco owners! Instantly find trails near you, completely mapped out turn-by-turn and be able to video record your entire Bronco 4×4 experience in the wild!

Discovering, planning and sharing off-road adventures is now even easier for Bronco owners, thanks to the new Bronco Trail smartphone app, available now in the Apple App Store and Google Play. Available only for Bronco SUV owners, the app features about 1,200 professionally curated off-road trail maps across the U.S., Canada and Mexico. It also provides the ability to record drives with tracks, waypoints, photos and video – and lets you share a summary of the drive on social media. The Bronco Trail app is complimentary to download and use.

Curated trail maps: Always stay on the trail with the Bronco Trail App and discover roughly 18,000 miles of existing trails in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico. Filter by location, length, difficulty, and more. Each trail has a description and can be saved for future adventures.

Points of interest: Keep track of what’s ahead, like tough challenges, scenic points of interest, waypoints, can’t-miss photo ops, and more. Once you’ve saved a trip, you can add your own waypoints, photos, and notes about your experience.

Satellite imagery and 2D topographic maps: Access and download different map styles to prepare for the journey ahead. Going off-grid? No problem: you can view downloaded maps even if you are offline.

Pressure gauge: Some trails recommend lower or higher tire pressure to traverse – Bronco Trail App features a real-time tire pressure gauge built in the app to assist with adjusting to desired tire pressure on the trail and recommended pressure for the road. And you can use it even when you don’t have a cellular or cloud connection.

Adventure tracking: Bookmark and record favorite trails to visit again or share experiences from your phone with other Bronco owners.
