After the login you are redirected to the logbook. For a new user the logbook is empty of course, this is why we have made some example entries for you with a dummy-user. This should be a small help for your start with the app.

To use the core function of the app - the logbook entries - you have to be located directly at a point of interest (summit, hut etc.). You recognize that when the big yellow button is displayed.


Given that SummitLynx is a summit book app, the entries should be made on a summit, at an alpine cabin or the lake. You recognize that you are at a point of interest as soon as you see the yellow pin icon at the bottom of the start page with the name of the destination. When you click on that button, an input field for your entry opens.

Picture, text and Facebook

You have the possibility to either take a picture or choose an already existing photo from your smartphone; furthermore, you can add a text and you can decide, whether your entry should be shared on Facebook and/or Twitter.

Too far away?

If you are more than 300 metres away from your chosen destination, an entry is not possible. Otherwise it would be much too easy to collect the points!

Former entries

Former entries can be added subsequently at all times in order to complete your tour book. Of course, no points for the hiking badges will be credited for these entries. Here, you’ll find the instructions.

Edit check-ins afterwards

You can edit or delete your check-ins afterwards by using our website (not the app):
