I've only had this thing for a few months, do I drive too much? Lmao!! But it's pretty darn close. So I guess rather then have two things to carry, I'd just use my phone.

I think the app is EveryTrail, and it's available on Android and iPhone

Well I have one on my phone for driving but you punch in an address so that would not really work on most trail rides. Need to get to looking at that phone of mine, lol.

OOh thanks Jilly, will check that out.

How do you plan on carrying your phone safely? I use a cashel ankle safe pack.

This is amazing - especially since I have no pockets and phones tend to work themselves out of pockets on long distance rides. This is one of the BEST endurance purchases I've made:

I've tried a lot of things, and when it comes down to it, you need to have your phone on you (not on the horse) in case of emergency. This doesn't interfere and can carry a lot of emergency items should something happen and especially if you get separated from your horse.

(However, I keep my GPS on the horse - if he makes it home without me, they'll know where to look for where he left me!)

Alas I don't have a Garmin/GPS or a fancy phone, so I track all my rides using satellite images via mapmyrun.com. Not 100% accurate but pretty darn close:)

Another one you can use is Google Earth. There is a "ruler" tool that lets you draw lines from point to point. Then it gives you the distances. It can be annoying if the trail is very windy to keep drawing the points, but straight distances are very easy. It is very accurate, however.

I use the MapMyRide app on my Android phone. It is the most accurate free app I've found.
