Touring app for iPhone
Hey all, I am new to the forum. A few months ago I went on a 2-day trip up highway 1 (from San Francisco to Mendocino). I was disappointed that there was no great way to plot out the elevation along my planned route, so I was always dreading the next unexpected climb. So I made an iPhone app to help folks get directions that come with an full altitude profile of the planned route.
If anyone here wants to give it a shot, email floatopian at floatopia dot org and I'll try to set you up with a free promo code. I would love feedback on the app from experienced cyclists!
You can download the application in the app store here.
I'm not expecting to make much money off of this software so this isn't supposed to be a big ad. I hope some of you find it useful. Does anyone know of a web site that plots altitude? I also made a little mashup with Google Maps but it's pretty rough at this point.
Here's a screen shot:
There are dozens of hike- and ride-mapping sites that do this: MapMyRide, RideWithGPS, BikeRouteToaster... there are probably dozens.
