Master Firefighter PT Training Tool
The days of casual exercise to stay fit are over. This app is the perfect tool to help you lead the way and track, grow, get faster, go longer, be better and keep a firm grip on where you have been. Both on the map and your performance.
I have to keep up and get stronger everyday in order to prevent my health from slipping. I can keep an eye on trends.
Also this app allows you to seamlessly tweet, or up-date face book on cool routes or new top sessions.
This is the best cross sport training tool available! Best iPod purchase ever.
I have now been using it for close to 2 years. It is as solid as they come. I use it for 4X4 trekking, mountain biking, backpacking and trail running.
I ride the same few routes everyday in an area of spotty cell coverage and still get great results from this all.
I upload the tracks into google and other apps with ease and great results.
If your on the fence because of some bad reviews, those people are crazy, this app is so solid and updated frequently enough with cool features.
Hit the trail! Good luck
Pretty bad app for hiking
Today I used it along three others apps to track a walk. The thee apps indicated that I walked nearly 4 Miles. This app only 1.75. The others apps showed an average speed of 5.2mph, this app only 1.9mph. I'd been suspecting that this app is very inaccurate and today I think improved it.
I had the phone in airplane mode because I place the phone on my waist and I do not want the radiation radiating from the phone constantly trying to use cell towers for "accuracy."
Regardless the other apps showed almost the same distance and speed, except for this app.
I will run another test comparing all these apps with a real dedicated hiking GPS. The Garmin 60CSx. A unit that its extremely accurate and we use it for search and rescue. I'll post my finding next time I go out for a work out walk.
This app nor any like it can't compare to a real handheld GPS unit, such as the Garmin 60CSx. Even if it worked, the battery life is too short for long hikes, much less for backpacking.
I would never trust it for hikes in unfamiliar places in the wilderness. For running or biking in the city where there is phone coverage, it will do If you don't care or accuracy.
It they could make it be more accurate and had off line maps, it would be a pretty cool app to have. Until then, I give it one star because it doesn't deliver has advertise.
Once a leader, now resting on its laurels
MotionX GPS looks to be standing still compared to other apps. Sure, there are still some things to recommend, but there are important basics that keep it from going all the way nowadays. Sharing needs to be expanded to include cloud saving like iCloud, Google Drive, etc. for easier sharing. It also needs other social networks, namely G+ (again, for easier sharing). As importantly, viewing data needs an upgrade. Viewing speed and elevation at the same time is a basic that MotionX GPS is missing. In the Track Recorder “Jumbo View” the ‘edit’ functions work intermittently and closing it is not easy - especially on the run! Likewise you cannot “turn off” pages of the Mode.
While the app stood out when first released it rested on its laurels and is now being overrun by other apps. Come on MotionX! Show the app, and us, a little love.
