Ride with GPS is the latest app that we are recommending to add to your smart phone. You can utilize the free service or upgrade to a “Basic” or “Premium” plan. We decided to upgrade to the “Basic Yearly” plan so we can utilize the voice navigation.
In the App Store of your choice (Google Play or iTunes) search for “Ride with GPS”. Download the Ride with GPS App into your phone, following the directions given within the application.
In researching the Ride with GPS app online, I was able to sync the app with my Garmin Connect and see all of the rides we’ve ridden with our Garmin GPS’s! This is also really helpful if you like to look at the maps like I do, seeing the “big picture” on my desktop PC.
I recorded a loop we use, in our conditioning, on Ride with GPS. You can explore the Ride with GPS attributes on a ride we did.
We will be making all of the routes we plan to use at the Mary and Anna Memorial Ride available in the GPS file format of your choice so that you may show up to the ride, locked and loaded!
