    hey iphone 3G users

    I found a super cool app in the iPhone app store today called Trailguru -- it lets you capture your ride using the GPS and then view it in Google Maps and Google Earth directly. Its FREE too -- check it out -- its in the Health and Fitness section.

    The start and finish times are wrong, as well as the average pace and maximum speed. The iPhone support is new so I'm sure they are working out the kinks. Other than that, it's a cool FREE little application for the iPhone.

    Check out http://trailrunnerx.com/ too. It's a great tool to log your rides and see pretty visuals like elevation gain and multiple rides at once.

    Yes- first gen iPhone has no GPS chip- only cell tower triangulation.

    can you also upload routes onto your iphone 3g and use it on the trail? if this is true, then I may not need to get a garmin edge

    Not to my knowledge- my understanding is the GPS chip is not fast enough to do turn by turn directions.

    I put this on my iPhone a couple of weeks ago(?) when I first saw it. Misses a little bit of info - at this point it won't replace my Garmin Edge, but it is kinda cool for hiking. You do have to set your phone to "Never" on the auto-lock for it to continue tracking while you ride or hike, etc... Neat application - esp for free!

    I just added the Every Trail app to my iphone 3g... It's not perfectly accurate and told me I rode 3.27 mi while my computer said 2.5 and also showed 2 trails in a couple of spots where I back tracked.. but this was my first ride just see how it worked. Its pretty nice, even lets you snap photos and geotags them on the map. It also has editable (is that a word?) waypoints so you can mark trail splits and entrances. You can upload your trip data and view it on google earth (as with most apps).. Here is the output:

    iTrail has been the best for me, also allowing me to export as .kml or .gpx... now i just need to find a program that lets me manage my gps files on a PC (something like trailrunner would be great)

    Don't know about that but I use another program named path tracker on my iphone and it works pretty well. Seems to be pretty accurate. The only downfall is that you have to pause it if you ever stop and since I carry it in my camelbak it is not completely accurate. I choose not to pause it but if you did I am sure it would be much more accurate. Here is what you get when you upload the trail:

    Hey BARK, thanks for the link...I downloaded GPSed this afternoon and tried it out on the way home...it worked pretty well on my crackberry.

    You can have it save the rout to your phone and upload it online as well, so I did not have to transfer my file once I created my track. Plus, I can add pictures to the route using my flicker or picassa site. I will test it out some more but so far this does what I want, and I do not plan on getting an iphone if this works out for me.

    been using this too (trailguru), very cool app and so far my fav of the gps apps

    motionX has one for 2.99 that is similar and looks to be a more professional organization so it might be worth buying before it jumps to 9.99 (per the website) when they upgrade things, but the website doesnt tell you as much in terms of ascent/descent graphs, just a map and some speed/distance stuff

    TheBikeComputer has a better display for a cyclocomputer (not sure id want my iphone on the handlebars though), but not as much access to data on your phone like maps and things...the website is very similar to trailguru

    I use mapmyride which is free as well. It pretty much does the same thing. I am not sure if it shows the altitude though, haven't found that on the website yet but I have only been using it for the google earth feature.

    I've purchase motion X and also downloaded the free trailguru. I like some of the features of motion X but prefer trailguru. I pretty much got motion x just cause I think it will get better over time and wanted to get my foot in the door @ $2.99. Here's a link to a new topic I just started, I got a tough case and nice handle bar mount for the phone.
