Travelputer is a mapping cycle computer for your iPhone. It uses GPS to calculate your speed and distance as you travel, and shows a map of your current position. It can also be used on foot or in a vehicle, but it has been specifically designed with the cyclist in mind. A single, gorgeous display shows your current and average speed and distance, pace, time and location.

Features:

Auto-pause: using GPS movement detection, Travelputer knows when you start moving and only counts moving time towards your total ride time and average speeds - it will pause automatically, and restart when you do. (Manual stop start override is also provided).

Current speed: show in large, easy to read digits.

Average speed, maximum speed: for the current ride

Trip distance: the total distance of your current journey

Total distance and time: the total time and distance for all your journeys.

Trip Time: the time you spend actually moving is shown.

Maps: Google roadmap, satellite or hybrid view, Open Street Map or Open Cycle Map . The map can be set to automatically follow your position during your journey. Full pan/zoom of maps is fully supported.

Heading fix: keeps the map correctly oriented to always show your direction of travel at the top of the map, even without an iPhone 3GS ! This makes navigation much easier as you’re travelling - left turns are actually shown on the left, right on the right, etc.

KML and GPX export: analyse your trip in minute detail with Google Earth and share your travels with your friends.

Clock: swipe the trip time to scroll across to the current clock time. Large, easy to read digits make this easily readable even when riding.

Altitude profile: Travelputer graphs all the ups and downs of your travels, so you’ll be able to tell just how many monster hill climbs you managed ! Tap the trip distance/altitude graph to view a large version of the graph in the upper display.

Pace indicator: Travelputer flashes a pace indicator next to the current speed, to let you know if you’re currently traveling at average speed, or faster or slower.

GPS accuracy indicator: the current level of accuracy of the GPS fix is constantly displayed to the left of the speed. The more bars are shown, the more accurate your ride data at any one time.

Battery indicator: constant GPS use is a heavy battery drain. The large battery indicator to the right of the speed lets you keep an eye on your battery power, without having to look at the tiny battery icon in the status bar. (We recommend the use of a battery pack such as the Mophie Juicepack Air; GPS is always a heavy drain on the battery)

Choice of units: kilometres and meters, or miles and feet - the choice is yours.

Note

Please use this application responsibly. Cycling can be dangerous - keep your eyes on the road at all times. The developer is not responsible for any damage to your person, your bike or anything else caused whilst using this app. We highly recommend the use of a iPhone handlebar mount.

This App absolutely requires iPhone 3GS or iPhone 3G because it uses GPS technology only found in these devices. Original iPhone or iPod Touch are NOT supported.

Great interface, but not quite there

:
I bought this app because it's nice-looking and the only bike computer that puts a map and all the bike data on the same screen. Problem is, it doesn't work that well.

For one, there's no dedicated lock button (like BikeMate) or screen brightness adjustment (to extend battery life), which I'd consider essential to keep the thing functioning during a ride. (If the phone goes to sleep, Travelputer stops tracking your route.) Next, there's no trip routing, so you've got to switch apps for directions (and thus interrupt tracking). And if you tap the map, it stops auto-centering; even pressing the bullseye button doesn't bring your current position back into view as I'd expect.

There is a handy 'Email feedback' button on the Settings screen, but after using it, I got no reply from the developer, so who knows if there's an update in the works or he's abandoned the project. (It has been eight months now with no updates and no replies to my email - looks like app has been abandoned.)

In short, this app is little more than a proof-of -concept; nice design, but unfinished and useless during a ride.

2/5 stars

Needs help

:
This app badly needs an update. It crashes often under iOS4 (both 3G and 4) and the trip counters fail to reset anymore. I would not recommend this app to anyone in it's current state. Given two stars because it was once great before the OS update.

2/5 stars

Where is the calories counter?

:
I think is a basic feature and its missing. I also did 'nt like that everytime my phone goes In sleep mode it stops tracking my route. Urgent update needed here.
