- Cycling apps with live tracking?
The missus is on a cycle ride this weekend (sadly she doesn’t do many) but we’re going to be tight on time so if she takes too long I’m going to have to find her / pick her up. Usually I use Strava for tracking rides etc, but in this case it would be useful to have something that reports position online fairly regularly so I can monitor her progress / work out a good place to meet her if required.
Anyone know any apps that do this? Supposedly Map my Ride MVP and Endomondo Pro do, but ideally I’d like to avoid having to pay for what will essentially amount to a single use.
If I had to pay… which of these apps is generally considered best? Thanks. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Sorry, should have specified, whilst she has an iOS device, I don’t… which means Find my Friends is out. Tracking has to be visible via a website.
Endomondo’s website seems to indicate that tracking is only available with pro. It’s cheap enough though. I assume given the number of people mentioning it, the app works fairly well?
Edit – Some awful reviews on the latest version of the pro app.
Though reading this it seems that it is indeed supported by the free app: https://www.endomondo.com/featuresPosted 5 years ago
Am I missing something? Why can’t she use a normal mapping app and text you a grid reference?
Because I want to be able to predict where she’ll be / see how she’s going… not know where she is. Nor did I want her to have to worry about it, just to get on with the cycling.
Anyway, Endomondo worked very well indeed. The only issue is that for whatever reason it doesn’t support speed / cadence sensors (bluetooth smart) even though the iPhone does. Thanks to all that suggested it.
Might see if Map My Ride / Runkeeper will store that data as it would be nice to have for future rides. At least for later analysis anyway.Posted 5 years ago
