      Hi all,

      Just wanted to give a heads up on a cool little application/webservice called Sportypal. It uses your devices internal GPS and tracks your workout then uploads it to their website where you can share your fun or jut as a quick and easy riding log with velocity and altitude logging.

      Have a look here: http://www.sportypal.com/Workouts/Details/2526

      BTW Singletracks is a fantastic resource and I for one greatly appreciate the efforts!

      Yes, I also found out about this applicaton last week. It works fine on mine IPhone, and when i go riding, i can choose weather to show me the track or only the stats. It works perfect. Very nice job by sportypal.

      The Blackjack 2 has an internal GPS but it is locked down unless you pay your service provider a monthly fee. Unless of course you unlock it yourself 😀 That is beyond the scope of this forum but a google search will turn up all the info you will need.

      Hi Mitch_A,

      Thank you for info about Sportypal. I saw your workouts on Sportypal’s web. They are great, you really know to choose the track. I’m prety new in mountain biking and for now I’m just taking the dust near the river :-(.

      Any way I installed Sportypal on my G1, here is my workout:

      I believe we, especially you can contribute to share the interesting trial maps. Yesterday we needed specialized GPS equipment for that, right now just "simple" phones.

      Cheers

      Here in California we may be about broke but at least we got some great trails to choose from out of the deal before the money ran out 😀

      Yes, our devices have reached amazing tech heights in just a ffew short years. I’m looking forward to trying out Android when a version is available for flashing my phone.

      Cheers M8

      Hi Mitch,

      Finely I ride good track, is more Mountain Road Biking but I enjoyed a lot. Maybe my biggest motive was that I found track which can compare with yours.

      Here it is:

      Cheers

      This looks to be quite a fantastic track M8. You kept up a great pace. I exported your .gpx and then used a website http://www.gpsvisualizer.com/ to convert your gpx file into a kml file for viewing in Google Earth. You can then use GE’s built in flight sim to follow the track up close and personal. Wish I could take it for a spin in real life though 😀

      I’m going to have to go find another even tougher track now 😀

      Hi

      thanks Mitch, but for Google Earth it is not necessary to convert GPX, just go in open (file) and than in the field file type select GPX, GE will open GPX perfectly…

      I was out of MTB because I was in Holland and there was no Mountains at all. They have wonderful road bike tracks but all are flat 😀

      Cheers

      I couldn’t get SportyPal to work on my Blackberry (something to do with the screen resolution), so i have been using EveryTrail.com

      Chris the link on Everytrail.com website does not work. I downloaded sportypal on my curve but it won’t work. Connection issues. Maybe I have to pay Verizon for the GPS service.

    • #79469

      Not sure why it doesn’t work.

      Try typing it in manually (http://www.everytrail.com)

      I just downloaded new version of sportypal. I realized that there are some new really cool features on the their web service like selecting all the people around you in your area, setting up goals and all different useful utilities. Basically it turns the phone into an excellent GPS personal training system.

      Whoa mike & George, you guys sound like a cheesy infomercial for Sportypal. Maybe the ShamWow guy could pitch in on this thread too 😀
