Note 1. iPhone 3Gs (9 hours), iPhone 4 (12 hours) - actual recording length dependant on battery condition, temperature, background applications and phone usage.
Note 2. Recording your ride requires no data or phone signal. However some features require data such as maps (if not already cached) or sharing. SET DATA ROAMING OFF IF YOU ARE CONCERNED ABOUT DATA USAGE AND COSTS.
As with all GPS receivers the quality of GPS signal can vary depending on the amount of visible sky, satellite positions, foliage, weather conditions etc. GPS will not work indoors. Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
What's New in Version 1.1
1. New graphical speed and distance display.
2. New mini speed and distance display.
3. New signal and location display.
4. Map performance improvements.
Best app out there so far
A lot of bike apps on the app store are decent. But this has topped them all. The others either lack the one thing you really need, such as offline maps, or they're just too cluttered and filled with junk you just don't need.
This however, has just about everything you could ask for. The plus for me is having the ability to store maps offline and be able to use them when on a ride. Right now, the only thing it's lacking is a calorie counter. I sent and received an email from the lead developer himself and was informed that a calorie counter would be coming in a future release. Once that comes out, this would pretty much complete the app and have everything you'd really need. So far, this app is worth re 3 dollars, and I don't buy too many apps from the app store either.
Close to perfection
Great app! If you're a skier you need these guys' SKI TRACKS app. All in all, this bad boy is almost perfect - especially for a phone app. 99% of riders don't need a GPS if they have this.
A few improvements I'd love to see:
1)Position plotting - selectable intervals: I find that on tight switchbacks it misses turns because the interval is too long. It would be better if you could select the interval according to your riding style, knowing that this will affect battery life.
2) Proximity sensor: SKI TRACKS uses the proximity sensor. Why not BIKE TRACKS?
3) Position tags: It would be sweet if you could tag the beginning and end of sections you wanted specific data on - and if this could be done with voice-recognition that would be ground-breaking.
The best yet
I can't believe there's isn't more feedback for this app. At least it's positive. This app is by far the most accurate I've used to date. I've used MotionX-GPS and Cyclemeter they have great reviews, but those people much be smoking something or have nothing to compare the data to. The altitude on those apps are way off. By like 400 feet. The speed is right on, but not good enough for me.
I have pretty nice equipment to compare the data to, but I only want to bring my iPhone with. This is the first app that can make that possible. Thank you. Now make it even cooler.
