What are some good apps for phones when touring?
So i am currently looking at some apps to use on my phone when i do day rides, overnights, and, eventually come summer, some long distance touring with my wife. I have a Samsung Galaxy 3, so i use droid operating system. My wife has an apple. I use mapmyrun currently for my runs, rides, etc. It's ok, but doesn't have a speed setting that will constantly display. I am actually thinking i will most likely not even be looking at speed. But what i am considering is using my phone as a trip distance, odometer, speedometer, etc. Or, should i just opt to use a regular speedometer (most likely wireless). Other info that may help with advice. We use external batteries that do very well for keeping us energized if our batteries run down. Has anyone used a solar recharger for devices? if so, what works well?
