    Any Android app just to post a google map location? Not a full bike computer app.

    I am going to be riding the Hotter N' Hell 100 on the 27th. I am running a Garmin 800 for myself but I am looking for an application to run on my phone that just updates my location every 5 minutes or so that way my wife will know where I am and can be at the finish line. It might also be fun to post my location so friends can watch.

    I don't want an application that does it live since it will use a lot of battery power for that. Every 4-10 minutes is more than enough. I also don't need any other features since it will just stay in the back of my jersey in a ziplock the entire ride and I have my Garmin for logging everything.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance!

    Chris

    Or, use Latitude to do a "check-in" periodically (i.e., rest stops).
    2009 mileage = 14,738 miles; 2010 mileage = 15,234 miles; 2011 mileage = 17,344 miles; 2012 mileage = 11,414 miles; 2013 = 12,169

    If I could find a way to automate that it might work.

    I don't want to take it out, I will probably only make one stop.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    I will give that a shot tomorrow. Hopefully you can set it to not be active all the time (Only update every few minutes or so). I am affraid it will kill my battery. Have you tried it?
