I don't have an Iphone or Android phone, haha. I'm going to have to look into getting a gps. I did find this really cool site that I mapped my exact route and I want to say it's pretty darn accurate. Thanks guys :)

I haven't done it, but I heard that you can upload your Garmin maps onto Google earth and see where you rode!

If you REALLY want to spend some money, the nicer Polar heartrate monitors have GPS as well and you wear it like a wrist watch so you can keep track of all your "stats", both travel and health wise

I really cannot make heads or tails of the apps I have checked out. Are there any that get your location and you click start and when your done click finished and it tells you how far that was??? Cause that would be so nice and simple!!!

I wouldn't know.... Help button maybe? I use my Garmin, so I was just passing along apps I've seen others use

Are they spendy?? The Garmin I mean? Maybe I need to get a gps just for riding.

Cool thanks. Does it work the way I said? Like can you push start and stop and get a mileage distance? If so I need one, lol.

There's apps in the store - look up hiking I think. Mapmyhike is one that comes to mind.

Please keep in mind that these apps eat the battery on your phone QUICKLY. Please be mindful of the useable and don't leave yourself stranded with no charge. Just get a runners GPS system.

^^^ Yes I think that would be a better idea, to just get a separate gps just for that. Thanks.
