Bike My Way is a cheap and simple application that will turn your iPhone 3G or 3GS into a GPS track-logger for cyclists. It eschews the rather distracting frills of other biking or multi-purpose GPS apps for a simple, battery-saving feature-set.
The $2 app records your progress to a GPX file, allows you to add waypoint (spacial “bookmarks”) and snap photos with the iPhone’s camera to add to the route. You can add notes, and then export GPX 1.0 or 1.1 files to EveryTrail (an online route-sharing community) or via email. And that’s it.
You can see your progress as a line creeps Indiana Jones-style across a map, but most people will probably want to switch off the iPhone’s display to save batteries: Bike My Way keeps logging when your iPhone is sleeping – just don’t close the app.
If you have compatible software, you can also use the exported info to geotag photos taken with another camera, thus taking care of the most common GPS tracker needs. Sure, you can get other, better featured apps for free of a few dollars more, but perch those info-overkill HUDs on your handlebars and you end up crashing or draining your batteries in minutes.
