Great tracking app for smart phones

I've been looking at tracking our forthcoming Italy trip, and allowing family / friends the ability to track our progress real time.

I got recommended one of Piston Heads but TBH, it's crap (GPX Logger). So, 1.49 wasted.

But, for 2.49 I bought this and it's brilliant:-

It does this:-

One for RSK too I reckon

Cheers,

If you want to save on data roaming (it pings the server every 10 secs with coordinate data), you can turn data of until you reach your free hotel wifi & it syncs from there and populates the map track & works out the stats

Of course, this will not offer real time tracking to the family back home

I imagine one update per day of journey progress for family and friends will be sufficient for their needs!
