    Everyone,

    I did a quick search and didn't find much. Does anyone have any experience with using an Iphone to view GPS tracks for rides? Planning on doing the Tran Arkansas Trail in a few weeks and I have the gpx file available, but was wondering if there is any way to put these on an iPhone 4. Are there any apps that allow this?

    Thanks!

    I have found good success with the "everytrail" app.
    uploading your tracks to the GPS visualizer tool is pretty cool.
    I've been happy with it and also GPS Motion X has been fun to use also.
    Great function to share your location, route, track, waypoints, etc.

    Thats my $0.02
    Hope it is helpful

    Have an AWESOME trip

    I've got motionx and gpskit. You can load maps for when you are out of cell coverage (open street map for both, google and bing for gpskit) and you can load your own track into both.

    Of the two, gpskit is the better app, worth the 15 bucks it costs.

    Motion X GPS (Not "Motion X Drive") is the way I would go. You can download the tracks and install them to Motion X through iTunes.
