- Is Endomondo crap? Is there anything better?
loads but which works best for you and your handset is a gamble. I’m on android not Ip and found My Tracks better than endomondo, but my Desire S takes a few minutes to find me/the satellites so always misses the start of a ride, whereas my other half’s older Desire runs My Tracks almost instantaneously.
Map my ride also popular.Posted 6 years agocolournoiseSubscriber
It’s usually the phone rather than the app.
My old Hero was pretty accurate with everything except altitude. My Desire HD was all over the place with all the GPS apps I have until a recent update which seems to have made it much more accurate.
Bought a 20 quid PAYG Pulse Mini from T-Mobile purely to use as a tracker and it’s been more accurate than either of the ‘proper’ phones mentioned above and I won’t much care if it gets trashed.
App-wise I prefer SportyPal to Endomondo, although Endomondo has better ‘community’ tools and a slicker website if that’s important to you.

endomondo and the like aren’t very good for trail centre style tracks – their accuracy and sampling rate tend to mean that the smooth out a lot of the wiggles that you do on a trail centre, so your distance is a lot lower… 28 vs 31km sounds like it is doing that.
You’re not going to get much better from any GPS software… if you want an accurate distance measure, you’ll need a good old fashioned cycle computer counting wheel revolutions.

Endomondo is pretty accurate
ahem – see the other endomondo thread 😉
Maybe it is accurate. If it is then Everytrail is grossly inaccurate. Or maybe Everytrail is accurate, which means Endomondo is grossly inacurate. Or… well take yer pick – one might be accurate (enough).

I’ll go with that. Rollers etc. and switchbacks will certainly be filtered away, at least partially.Posted 6 years ago
