The Ride with GPS mobile app for iPhone and Android allows you to record your ride and upload to ridewithgps.com along with geotagged photos to share or keep for your personal use.

Premium and Basic subscribers will unlock even more features in the mobile app like Turn-by-Turn Voice Navigation, Live Logging, and Offline Maps.

Recording a ride on the mobile app:

  • Log into your existing Ride with GPS account, or if you don’t already have an account, create a new account here.
    Optional: Tapping LOGIN USING FACEBOOK will prompt you to sign into your Facebook account, if you aren’t already signed in to the Facebook app. This option is not mandatory.
  • To begin recording, tap “go ride”:
    On iPhone, Go Ride is in the upper right corner:

    Skip Stops searching a GPS lock, but starts recording using the location it currently has on the map.

    If you start/stop your rides outside at the same place often, then this process should not take very long.
