    I use it for cycling. So when I use it on the motorbike I upload it at the end of the ride and then quickly share it with Facebook, delete it from Strava (so no one thinks I have beaten any cycling speed records ...) and then save the new Facebook image as an image and put it on here (Long winded I know but it is good to see where the ride went. It is a shame more on here don’t share their routes)

    I have the ap on an iPhone and it lasts a long time (have been over 7 hours on the bicycle). No cellular data as it runs off the GPS while recording, only need data to upload at the end.

    And for anyone thinking of using it remember it is a cycling, walking, running, swimming application. It does record fastest times for certain segments so you would be shot if you were recording motorised segments in there as you would be sitting the fastest times everywhere. That is why I delete it so quickly once I have the image saved).

    I’m sure there are better and more suitable applications to use, but this is the one I have loaded.

    Wasn't me:( I'm not allowed out.

    Did go for a blat on the pushie but not far enough for a whitebait fritter sammy at Mokau, sadly.

    Gorgeous day here too, cold and clear.
    The mountain would have been impressive.
