Trailforks App

Postby RHR_Rob on Thu 24/Sep/15 7:04am

This app is fantastic and should win an award.
it works off gps on your phone and shows you a map of all the trails (that have been user uploaded) in your area, and exactly where you are on that trail, you can just touch on a trail and it will give you all the details on that trail - length, profile, photo,s etc
if your unfamiliar with an area you can use this to easily find the best trails (and where you are) and not have to piss around with a paper map.
We used it in Whistler the other week and the uploaded network is pretty extensive so it was dead easy to plan rides and see exactly where we were.

There are quite a lot of nz trails on it but it is dependent on users uploading trails, so will take a bit of time to become extensive.

check it out.

It's the same conspiracy as all new bike stuff - "no-one is forcing you into the new standard", it's just the new stuff won't work with your old stuff.

Dumb BOOST apps.

The S3 can be upgraded to 5.1 if you install a third-party ROM.
