    GPS computer or APP

    Looking into the GPS bike computers and got to thinking there might be some APPs that perform the same or similar functions. Any thoughts? Thought it might be nice to track how I climb or find some maps to load that have trails shown so I don't have a bunch of sweaty maps to try and read.

    I use OruxMaps, you can load custom maps or internet maps, or even create maps.
    You can also load tracks and create track logs, and alot more options. There are more alternatives, but this one is a very complete one in my opinion.

    Trailforks.
    Strava.

    I use a Garmin Fenix 5 for mtb and have an 820 for the road bike. I've destroyed an 810 on the bars so I try not to mount anything on the bars anymore. I don't really care about my stats until after the ride so the Fenix works well for me. I upload everything to Strava after the fact (well, it does it automatically), but you can use Strava to track your ride as well.

    I use Trailforks for navigation and just pull it out when I'm lost.
    Hey guys, lets go play bieks!

    I use my Garmin Vivo. Uploads automatically to Strava. I don't use my phone.
