The best GPS tracker bar none

I am ed

When it come to recording a GPS track - forget using Strava, runkeeper and the rest. I got fed up with the instability of those apps losing a precious(!) track halfway through. MotionX has never crashed on me and has always faithfully recorded the track.

It's then trivial to export the .gpx file and upload it to whatever social/tracking app you want. Yes, it's an extra step, and there's several steps to do if don't have access to a desktop computer, but the benefits outweigh that minor inconvenience for me.

By pre-downloading the map segments you can switch to airplane mode for extra battery life.

You can design a track at home, import into MotionX, then use it to follow when cycling - without needing any data - you can switch to airplane mode for extra battery life.

If you want the very best feature set in GPS tracking, use MotionX, nothing else.

Fav Walking App


Having tried others I really appreciate the simple but effective efficiency of this app, I’ve been able to share my walks to fb for example (which includes all the relevant data including a clear gps map) and I've found the app in general to be very accurate, clear and easy to use, the offline maps a very nice touch for walks where signals may be lost also 5/5.

Hurrah! Updated at last, still the best.

Man of Simple Mind

Excellent app! I used in the LakeDistrict and download a map of the area before I went to save on any 4g signal worries, the gps did the rest. Very handy to see where you went, how long it took and how far you climbed. You can also see where you went wrong which helped me get back on track, or find a route back to the car park!
