Strava Or Other
« on: June 15, 2019, 11:35:02 AM »
I'm getting a new phone.
It won't be flash or expensive but it will be a massive upgrade from what I am using now.
So probably the cheapest Galaxy or similar.

Chances are the new phone will be able to run Strava.
My question is should I go there?
What are the advantages or the disadvantages?
Is there an other that is better?

I want something that can map my runs and bike rides.
It has to be free.

I use Strava and think it's good
You can map where you go, keep track of speed, how much you have climbed, how long your ride was and lots of stuff
Have not tried anything else though.

I use ViewRanger for my walks. I don't know how it compares to other apps.

You can use Strava (and some other apps) with Relive https://www.relive.cc/ which I think is pretty cool. I would love to use it for hiking photos.

For the NZ Topo maps, yeah looks like it's about $12NZD/year. https://shop.viewranger.com/product_details.php?item_id=779 Includes unlimited downloads for offline use though.
Otherwise it's on a satellite aerial or their own topo. I haven't done any more than just record my tracks.

Not sure if you will be able to view this..... https://my.viewranger.com/track/details/NDA4NjAzOQ==

Map types in drop-down menu at right of map but you have probably found that already.
I meant to say I haven't bought any maps for it.

Well it's free so you can always try it and ditch for something better if you want.
Works on my S4 Mini, worked on my Ace 3 too.

Sweet, I can export my tracks as .gpx files and import them into Google Earth.  :tu:
