Description

What is the MCN Ride Logger?

Motorcycle News editor Marc Potter, who helped develop the MCN Ride Logger, explains: “With our App anyone can record their personal performance figures - then after a ride relive every bend, twist of the throttle or touch of the brake lever.

Using the same GPS technology used in many professional data logging systems, the MCN Ride Logger provides previously unavailable insight into your everyday riding performance.”

- Record your location, speed, acceleration and braking continuously throughout a ride

- Review your ride data at any point via a zoomable map

- Swap to a graph view to see how you’re riding at different points, comparing in detail

- Share the details of your favourite rides with friends

- Fully OS4 compliant App

What the experts say

Bruce Dunn, the UK’s leading independent bike performance tester: “The MCN Ride Logger is a simple but highly effective tool for anyone who wants to understand and explore their bike’s performance.”

Colin Overland, editor of Ride magazine: “It’s slick and easy to use and can help you take an objective view of your riding habits – both good and bad. Being able to review your exact speed on a journey, e.g. at particular road junctions, can certainly help you reassess how much safety margin you are leaving yourself.”

Key features

Using the MCN Ride Logger couldn’t be easier…

- Hit the new ride button to start recording your ride

- Place your iPhone somewhere safe where it gets a strong GPS signal*

- Head off on your favourite ride!

Once your ride is over, hit the “end ride” button, and full data of your ride will be saved on your iPhone, where you can:

- See top stats for the ride – top speed and peak acceleration/braking figures (including the exact location where these figures were achieved) plus average speed, journey time and distance covered

- View each journey on an enhanced Google map showing speed and acceleration/braking at any point you select

- Zoom in and see how your speed/acceleration varies on your route yard by yard or second by second

- View your data in an expandable graph view – just like on a pro data logging system

- Add a range of background info to each ride, including your own personal ride rating plus details of your bike, tyres and weather conditions

- Build up a fascinating library of every journey you make on your bike

- Share with your friends the basic stats of each ride on Facebook or via email

* The MCN Ride Logger uses GPS satellite positioning to track your route. For best results, your iPhone should be positioned where ever it receives the best GPS signal. This will vary between bikes and riders and may require some experimentation to find the best position.

As with any GPS App, the goal is to give your phone as panoramic and uninterrupted a view of the sky as possible.

MCN has tested the App using a wide range of bikes and riders.

Locations giving consistently reliable results (e.g. works fine for the vast majority of riders)

- Tank bag map pocket

- Top of bum bag

- Rucksack upper/outer pocket

- Top of tail pack / other bag bungeed to pillion seat

- iPhone-specific bike mount

- Outer thigh pocket

Locations giving mixed results (e.g. works fine for some but not all riders)

- Front jacket pocket (may be worse for sports bike riders)

- Hard panniers

Could be great, but not close yet

:
Cons:
First, I just hate when the app description is misleading or missing information. The biggest drawback to this app is that once you click "start your ride" you have to leave the app running and the only option available is a button "End Ride". If you press the home button (to open another app or start your iPod) or ANSWER A PHONE CALL the tracking stops - contrary to what one would infer from the app description stating that this is an iOS 4 fully compatible app.

So, as you can tell I was frustrated right from the start, but I decided to brush it off and try it out on a short ride. So I let the app render my phone useless while the app stayed open to record my 5 mile ride. When I was finished, I hit the "End Ride" button and entered the info which saved nicely. Then the first thing I noticed was that the distance was only 1 mile, then when I viewed the track the whole path was there correctly, but only the first 3/4 mile and the final 1/4 mile of the 5 total miles had data (speed, accel., etc)... So far this app was misleading and the pieces that were defined in the description don't work. At least if the app gave a current status I may have known it wasn't tracking properly.

Also, I would have hoped for more options and settings. Like being able to specify the accuracy of the GPS and background location tracking options.

Finally, I have few apps that cost more than $1.99 and the ones I do have work amazingly well and I use all the time... Unless there are substantial updates to this app, it was a waste of money.

Pros:

The data and point by point track review would be amazing if it worked.

So... The interface and idea behind the app is there and superb, but needs to be functional. If the app had the ability to run in the background, displayed details while it was open and a ride is in progress, and let you adjust the background location tracking it could be one of the best apps in it's category and totally worth the money. So I'm hoping for an update and that's the only reason I gave 2 stars instead of 1.

4/5 stars

Wait has been worth it!

:
I have been eyeballing this app before it was available on the US markets. Quite nice actually. To be able to see the high points and go right to them on the map is amazing! The map shows you where you accelerate and decelerate, and how fast and how many g's you are generating at any given point.

One of the features I would like to see is iPhone 4 Gyro support, if it is capable of helping to display lean angle. Other than that, this app is a gem!

4/5 stars

Great app for any type of travel!

:
I first tested this app in my car and it tracks everything accurately. I really like being able to retrace the speed throughout the route. The main reason I bought this app was to track my path, distance, time and speeds while riding my motorcycle and it appears it will do a great job at this. I agree that the two updates it needs is to display temp in farenheit (better yet, could it read weather information based on gps location and display weather stats throughout the ride on it's own?) and the ability to export all ride data to your computer.
