ride mapping/recording app for iphone

Recommended Posts

was thinking of using my phone to record my ride outs so i can revisit a good run that i might forget how to get to in future. A couple of mates had OS maps with specific maps already added on some old type garmin sat nav. 

 

Was wondering what people used on iPhone etc.

I have no idea what people are using on their stupid iphone, but on my Android I use Orux.

 

BTW, this has been discussed a bazillion times. ;)

I use MapMyRide on the iPhone for tracking workouts and gps recording for mountain bike and road cycling routes.

Thanks and yes it has been discussed but most are old threads and new apps come out all the time hence the question. I tried installing Orux on my android tablet but the OS is that fragmented i lost the will to live when it just wouldn't install. I think i was running chocolate lollipop dog poo sandwich or something. So i tried ViewRanger on my iPhone and looks like the thing i was after.

Thanks for this. I did have a look but it doesn't have any detailed maps i need for green lanes. i needed something with Ordinance Survey maps really.

The key here is to be able to run independent of your cell network.  I use my Windows phone for GPS mapping, I use an app called Satellite GPS.  That phone is no longer hooked up to my cell provider so I don't worry about running the battery down.

Thats why ViewRanger seemed to be a good choice. Lots of free maps to download and you can pay for OS maps of different regions and scales. :)
