Mornin' all,
Finally got me one of these newfandangled phone thingies and - after a few weeks playing early nineties video games - figure I should get some navigation/ride-logging type app and just wondered which ones folks have had good experiences with?

I guess being able to decipher & repeat the good bits of a day exploring will be the most useful trick, along with general bragging rights of course! :lol:

Cheers![/code]

Strava, have a look at some of the threads on here. You will not be disappointed. Even better it is free. It can be quite compulsive though.

Well for bragging rights you need to get Stava, it great for racing against your mates and people you don’t know and you can add your own race sections and its free.

I also use BackCountryNavigator for use with GPX type files and loading OS maps. Its not free but it bloody good.

Not sure I'm a fan of Strava, morally speaking, but that's a whole nother thread!:lol:

BackCountry sounds promising, I'll have a look into that. Maybe try a free one for a while first though, see if I use it much.

...

and I'll probably get Strava :oops:

:lol:


Thanks guys :)

I use MMtracker, as I already have a big stash of memory map OS desktop maps. Well worth it if you can get hold of memory map files.
