Open iTunes to buy and download apps.
Ride Tracker is a GPS based tracking app for people who like to road or mountain bike. Get it now to help with your new years resolutions!
STATS AND MAPS
Ride Tracker tracks speed, distance, altitude, and time. It also gives you a map showing where you have been while you are saving a run.
When viewing saved runs your route shows up on the map color coded by speed. It shows where you went the fastest (red) and where you were slowest (blue).
Don't have a mount to see the stats as you bike? You can have the app tell you updates on your progress either every mile or every five minutes.
PAUSE AND RESUME
Pause the workout to catch your breath or chat with a friend and then resume when you get back to it.
Share your workout with your friends on Facebook with our easy to use integration.
If you have a mount for your phone this app is perfect. You can easily see your stats in real time with your current speed being the focal point.
VIEW TIME PERIODS
See the stats for the last run, last week, current month, or all time with the touch of a button as well as the ability to choose a specific track.
You can switch between 3 different map types including street, hybrid, and satellite view.
The supports both standard and metric units.
Note: Continued use of the GPS will reduce battery life.
What's New in Version 1.7
-bug fixes with a map problem that occasionally caused a crash for some users
Good and simple!
If you want just a no nonsense way to track your bike ride: time, speed, distance and don't want all the junk that comes along with apps like mapmyride then this app is perfect. Also it won't drain your battery at all. I tracked on a 7 mile trail thru the woods with poor cell signal and my iPhone still showed 100% after completing the ride using this app. Very happy with this. Definitely worth a $1.99 to me!
Ps. To the reviewer who said that false starts etc. can't be deleted...all you do is slide your finger to the left on that particular stat and the delete button pops up.
I have had this app for years now but have not used it in a couple of years because the old version always told me the gps signal wasn't strong enough, even though it was clear as a bell outside. I started using it again this week and haven't had any problems with the gps. I really like the fact I can lock my screen now and the app continues to run. The Facebook connect is really nice as well. I do wish it didn't use so much battery.
Perfect for Me
As many have said this is a basic app - all it does is keep track of your rides - distance, date, speed, etc. for a casual rider like me it's all I need.
The map doesn't show in the main screen so everything is large enough to read without reading glasses!
Riding in my hometown I always know where I am so don't really use the map.
