If you have an Iphone, this is the one to have. Cheap, slick and very good.

https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/track-realtime-route-tracking/id475097577?mt=8

It has 4 "modes" that ranges from realtime and a battery eater, to a low battery chomper.

I used reatime and when in cell reception, it is absolutely real time. When out of reception it just, as stated above cached the route and then downloaded as soon as cell reception was picked up again.

On a full battery, I think in realtime mode the phone lasted 3 or 4 hours. I have an on-bike charging system and used that alot.

Anyone can follow if they have the link that the phone creates when a new route is created.

Big bonus was, when I was expecting a monster data bill, that I think the tracking for the whole 3 days came to less than R50.

Thanks bud.

And thanks to all for the advise. I down-loaded Real Time GPS Tracker and am testing it out  :thumleft:
BMW F650 DAKAR ; BMW 650 X-Challenge ; YAMAHA 660 TENERE ; BMW 800 GS KTM 200EXC. Now - KTM 950 Adventure S, KTM 250 XC-W and BMW 450 Rally

if u are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead, luke warm is no good, hot is no good either, white hot and passionate is the only thing to be...
