Ok, after much trial and error I have settled in on....."Track - Realtime route tracking and sharing". It works great, it is available in the apple App store at Track

For Android I use "My Tracks". It tracks your route really accurately, does distance, elevation, time, average speed (just moving speed, and overall). Plus it's really easy to import into google maps so you can share it.

Some do, some don't. If you get a app that allows you to download certain map areas and store them offline on your device than no. If you have a app that will continually have to access maps such as Google as you use the app then yes it will use data. Like I mentioned before, if you're going to get a app for riding in areas that may not have cell coverage or you don't have a unlimited data plan then get a app that has offline map options like gaia or accuterra like I use. There is also one for the iphone called Topo maps I use which is good.

Oh, I also have a nice little Garmin etrex vista/legend c that has built in maps and is also waterproof. It's great too and allows you do download your tracks to the pc and share them.

This is a really cool thread! I played around with a few of the mentioned apps, like "View ranger" and "All-sport GPS". I don't need maps because I usually already know where I will be going, so View Ranger was a little more technical than I needed. However, I really like the allsport GPS. I just want to track the basics like elevation, time, and speed, all of which it does very well! It's easy to use and I really like that I do not have to be connected to my data while using it. Just with playing with it a few times, it appears to use about 4% of battery per 30 min on my iphone. Essentially, I could go for a 6hr ride and only use 48%, still leaving over 50% battery life for an emergency call or whatever.

I downloaded AllSport GPS. I suggested horseback riding to them and got a real person answer. They want to hear from us!
