    Looking For Advise Please On GPS Tracking To Share Routes

    I apologize if this question has been answered somewhere else. I do a fair bit of traveling but I've always been a map guy and don't use GPS.

    My question is if someone can suggest a device (dedicated GPS type or smartphone, etc) and/or software that can record where I'm riding so that I can then transfer my route easily to another rider for them to travel the same route on their own?

    I am aware of SPOT conceptually as a tracking method. Can that be used to record a route for someone else to download to their GPS and use.

    Any help or suggestions will be appreciated. Thanks

    Charlie

    If you're okay with an android phone, check out mytracks from the playstore.

    If you love your bike, let it go.

    There is also an app for the iPhone. When I looked at it, you have to enable tracking (obviously) and the company gets to do whatever they want with whatever information they can collect about you. Sure, everyone does it, but these guys are pretty upfront about telling you that. I opted out.

    The android app "Bubbler GPS" uploads tracks to your free account on Spotwalla.com, and lets people view a map of your travels. Though I don't believe it can export a route into a Garmin GPS file format.

    OsmAnd app ( http://osmand.net/features?id=trip-recording-plugin ) allows you to record your tracks on your phone....Bubler will record your tracks (when you tell it to) and post it online. Bubler requires cell coverage if you plan on using a phone. However it will store up to 200 (i believe) points and then upload them when you get cell coverage (data required). Both are free.

    Thanks to everyone who has responded so far - I appreciate it. I have a Samsung Note 4 Android phone, so that might a viable tool to use. I'll check out all the suggestions.

    Another app for android - Locus and Locus Pro. It's pretty good at down/uploading tracks. Free version includes ads. The pro only cost $7 when I bought it and I got all the USA and Mexico maps included in that price.
