What app should I use?
For performance (high accuracy) tracking use the Map My Tracks OutFront app, available for iOS and Android. OutFront will broadcast your progress every few seconds. When used on ‘online public’ mode it will stream full performance details including speed, distance, cadence, power, heart rate live to the event maps.
Live tracking available as an in-app purchase which costs £2.99. An additional power pack may be required to track live over long durations.
For long distance (low accuracy) tracking use the Map My Tracks Endurance app, available for iOS and Android. Endurance is purely a location tracker. It does not provide performance statistics but can have the update interval extended in order to preserve the phone’s battery life. Endurance is available to download from the App Store or Google Play for £0.79.
