Does anyone use a devise to track how many miles they went on a trail. I am looking for one that is not expensive.

There are many apps that you can download to any of the smart phones if you have one.

Everytrail MotionX Edmundo

I don't recommend Magellion Triton 400. It has a software glitch that every time the battery goes dead, you have to re-install the software.

I downloaded EquiTrack on my iPhone and I love it. Tracks the minutes you rode, takes GPS of where you went, and also tracks your speed in MPH. It was $4 but very much worth it.

It is not enough to know how to ride; one must know how to fall.

Tremble outdoors has a free app. and for (I think) $5 a year, you can pay so you can post it to facebook. Several of my riding buddies have it and enjoy it. there is other apps for the iphones, but I don't know what they are.

I have EveryTrail on my phone and it works very well. It shows the trail, average speed, current speed, total miles, latitude/longitude, and how long you rode. It is very easy to use. Plus it was free.

I also have an old Garmin entry level GPS that I bought about 10 years ago to carry while hunting. It works OK. It would loose signal in heavy forest and deep canyons so you wouldn't get true miles or speed. But it would get you back where you started.

Debbie, if you know the area you ride in and can follow the tracks on a map, here is what I found useful:

Google Maps Distance Calculator

Even if you do not know the area, it is relatively easy to find your way on a satellite map soon after you have ridden there.
