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!
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.
