I'd like to start heading out on the trails soon. Is there a GPS tracker that I could use that tracks my movements and provides others access to my whereabouts? For safety's sake, I think it would be nice to have an app that would let my husband know I am out on the trail, and when I get back. Do any of you use something like this?
I have MotionX and am very happy with it. The best thing is that you can download the maps of the areas you will be riding and that way it still works if you lose cell service. I think it costs a dollar and it's done very well tracking my rides. Average speed, maximum speed, distance covered, elevation, and a graph that shows you how fast you were going at certain periods of time during the whole ride. Posted via Mobile Device
I've never used it but have heard raves about Horse Rider SOS. It will send an alert to your set emergency person if your phone stops moving after a set time (in case you're unconscious) and you can cancel the alert if you just stopped to rest or something. It tracks your route, speed, milage, etc... Its like $9 USD though but everyone says its worth every penny. I use map my ride and post to FB but its not a good emergency GPS app. Posted via Mobile Device
