[Update. OK, it turns out that you have to go to the Map My Ride website in order to save this location request. The app does not include a possibility for doing so. I hardly ever log into MMR on my computer, so it did not occur to me initially. Once I went to the website I was able to complete the request, and it has disappeared from my phone app. Thank goodness.] I've used this app satisfactorily for quite awhile, but in the last couple of weeks the app keeps asking me to confirm my location (country). If I select the country and click "next" I get a dialogue saying there was a error and the info was not saved. It at least then provides an option to "skip" and proceed using the app, but since it won't save I have to do this dance every single time I open the app. I tend to make lots of starts and stops each day, so click, click, skip multiple times a day is getting really annoying and makes me think it is time to find a new app for ride mapping.
I don’t really write review but I’m not as thrilled with this as I was in the start. The map building was super easy and sold me on trying it. It seemed to work well but has failed to log my last three work outs. I go to stop it and it logs a few steps that I’ve just taken. Total workout run: .01miles. The first time I thought it was me so before my next ride, I doubled checked quickly. When I finished nothing. The third time, I thought I wasn’t careful enough so I double checked and went for my run. When I stopped it, the same. I don’t know if I’m hitting something, but I can’t keep checking this thing to make sure everything is going. It’s bad enough trying to carry my iPhone 8 Plus around let alone it not really doing anything. Someone mentioned if was unreliable, that if you hit a wrong button it aborts your work out. Big problem is you start it and try to put it away and might hit something, especially on a big smart phone. If the could fix that it would be a great app. I’m not sure if I’ll switch back to the other apps, but it worked fine for a few workouts not require too much maintenance for me to keep using it. Also, the menu layout is a bit confusing. I have a hard time trying to navigate to pages in the app I’m trying to get to. I’d get used to it but I wish it were more intuitive.
Cool idea but has quite a few bugs. At first it seemed really great. Until I started “checking” it’s data for accuracy. It doesn’t handle gps very well which leads to most information being inaccurate. I used this to map my bike path. And see my speed, distance, top speed and the entire path that I traveled. It had all of that in the free version and the ads are minimal (except one in the last few days which the x button wasn’t shown on iPhone X screen). The issue came quick when I started doing math and known distances. Nothing added up and I noticed when checking my paths, sometimes it would just auto jump me from one skipped me 2 miles and instead of showing actual path just showed straight line. Which still isn’t that bad. I continued to use it. You know. Free and all that’s not bad. The issue is it doesn’t turn the app off and requires phone to be rebooted completely to close app or it just constantly stays open killing my Apple Watch. No matter how many times I manually close the app on phone and watch, every time I lift my hand after a couple minutes, it just shows the app open and wanting me to continue my already finished. And synced my work out. I uninstalled due to heating phone and watch and destroying battery so quickly.
I’ve used the free version of this app well over a year now. If you are going to use for shorter rides where there is good coverage, it’s fine. But hit the wrong button by accident and it aborts the whole exercise segment. It’s recent upgrade adding new buttons hasn’t helped but added confusion. I lost both of my last 23 mile rides, because the first time I didn’t like the picture it took and the language deleting didn’t say it would delete the ride. Today I had the app closed but operating and when I hit a button to continue, or so I thought, it started a whole new route without asking if I wanted to save the old one. I ride on rail-to-trails and have also had occasional times the app would not sync. I am glad of the manual option, speed function, and gps catch-up that figures out if you rode a bit but forgot to unpause and figures in the mileage in when you do. But I think also more than one pic should be allowed and the major flaw is no BACK UPS!!!!! If you don’t make it to the end and sync, your ride is lost-you can add a ride manually but without the cool maps. Remember GPS also uses lots of phone battery power.
I use MapMyRide (MMR) on every outdoor cycling and Chi Walking effort for it’s adjustable intervals and it’s audio updates on both average pace/speed, segment pace/speed, and progress towards goal in 1/4 segments (25%, 50%,75%, 100%). I suspect the distances rely on cell tower rather than Garmin’s sophisticated Satellite tracking, but do not know that as fact. I rely on my Garmin Edge device (Edge 1000) to record a host of performance data and am confident that the Edge devices are the most accurate. MMR seems to declare a 30 mile ride complete about 0.4 miles sooner than my Garmin Edge does. In actuality, that’s only about 1.3% off, but I rated it 4 stars instead of 5 for that reason. To avoid duplication, I delete the MapMyRide data after stopping it after each ride, but MapMyRide accepts the Garmin Edge data, too and I like their analysis of the data it uses from my Garmin Connect App. All and all I really like this App. I use an ear bud connected to my phone with Bluetooth to get clear updates during my rides or speed walks.
