Compare Everytrail and ActiveTrails

I’ve uploaded my last outing to both Everytrail and ActiveTrails to do a little feature comparison. You can follow the links and play with each yourself. I come out leaning towards ActiveTrails, which has a nice simple interface and does things like printing with grace. Everytrail has a few more features for editing content, and provides an embedded trip view:

That may be attractive to bloggers (although the photo doesn’t seem to be working). Which is nicer for blog readers?

  1. That’s a point I hadn’t looked closely at.

    Both have USGS topos, just a different control for switching.

  2. The photos worked for me with full screen.
    When your out there, how do you update your position to geo? All I got is my mobile, I’m still looking for a way to enter my position in the header or text.

  3. On the CDT I sent posts to my blog via email, and had to write my own software to parse the position from the header and save it.
