I just got this as a press release.  Have not looked into it yet, so consider this post an FYI.   iBike Coach App The new iBike Coach App (designed to work exclusively with the iBike Dash CC), includes a new user interface, more extensive use of video instruction tutorials, a simpler product setup, easier… Read More

I get lots of press releases about how something can saves lives and normally, its a borderline case, but I think this app really could.  And as a motorcyclist, I may install this and keep it running in the background 24/7. UPDATE:  the app is now $0.99 in the store and there are two new… Read More

I’ve always known San Francisco to have a large affinity for bikers. It comes as no surprise, then, that a San Francisco based company called Strava is working on a universal program to keep track of a biker’s exercise for those who opt for the more sophisticated technology. This means bikers with an iPhone, Android… Read More

It’s taken awhile, but finally a function I have really missed when I used to have my treo. I have a limited phone plan, so keeping track of my cell minutes is important, but more importantly, I need to know where my minutes are going.  Although you can go on the web to get your… Read More

I downloaded this a while back, but since I do not run anymore, I have not had an opportunity to try it out. It’s a bit cold today for a ride but I still need some exercise, so I dusted off the old running shoes and went for a jog. Setting up runKeeper is pretty… Read More

MotionX is not like other gps loggers I have reviewed for biking or running, but I I thought I would have a look at it anyway.  Sweeeett looking app! MotionX is more useful for motorcycling or driving in my opinion then biking unless you are on a long or particularly complicated ride. The cool feature… Read More

Ok, it took awhile, but hey, its shipping! Go here to orangegadgets the check it out.. xWave also has a new release of xGPS software tagged 1.0.1-4.  Although its rough and takes a few steps, its the light at the end of the tunnel.  More here… It’s still early as far as other applications getting… Read More

There seems to be a pattern here, I cannot seem to get enough GPS loggers. This is the 5th GPS logger I’ve checked out, and with one exception, which I will cover in a second, I’m not really seeing anything significantly new here. iMapMyRide is a free GPS logger with a companion web site like… Read More

As most of you know, lately I have been writing about GPS logging apps for the iPhone for biking, running, sailing, or whatever. But what if we do not have the iPhone or we have the ipod touch? Are we doomed to look on in envy as you iPhone users get to wallow in GPS… Read More

I’m not a runner and I’ve stopped my regular runs a few years ago. But a reader pointed out Fitnio to me, so I thought I would give it a shot on a run instead of biking as normal. Fitnio is like most other free GPS loggers out there I have used; but what is… Read More

Well sure, why not?  I was in Sacramento today to play golf with my father and brothers and tried Path Tracker for a hole. Why didnt I keep it running for the whole round?  I forgot my car charger.  Do’h.  Worked pretty well although it did not place me on the green propery. My brother… Read More

At last count, I think there are around 7 or 8 iphone applications you can use for GPS logging.  I have not tried them all, but I did give TrailGuru a try. I tested TrailGuru on the ebike on a short ride to the grocery. Like Path Tracker (reviewed here) the iPhone takes a GPS samples and… Read More

I did a survey of the various navigation apps out there and decided to give Path Tracker a try.  It was only 99c. Path Tracker is not like TrackThing where you get a graph and stats on the iphone. Instead, data is uploaded to a website as with GPS Tracker.  Except I never could get… Read More

I said I would take a ride on Friday, and I did.  I just have not had time to write anything up till now. I took a short ride with trackthing lite on before the iphone 2.1 update and after hoping the GPS will work better and my graphs would be more stable with less… Read More

The last week has been insanely busy, so I have not even had time for a quick 10 mile ride in the hills.  I did however take my ebike to get lunch and did a recording just for fun. Now for those of you who do not ride electric bikes, (and I’m guessing that is… Read More

I did a ‘maintenance ride’ today and thought I would try out a new iphone app I downloaded last night called TrackThing. I basically turned it on, put it in the small pouch on the back of the bike and took off, ibiking if you will. {UPDATE} Since writing this post I have reviewed a number… Read More
