I tried it once, it kills the phone battery. If you have the battery plugged into the quad it should do fine. I was scouting trails on foot and forgot the gps so I used my phone. Maybe after an hour the battery was dead. It takes alot of power to track via gps on the phone.

We use it in the dunes, especially when we visit new dunes. It came in extremely handy for a poker run last memerial day when the locations of the poker stops were kept secret. With over 6,000 to cover, we used my tracks to record where we had been and where we hadn't...yet!

It works great but. like swampcat said, it puts a heavy strain on your battery. We have no problems with short trips around an hour or so but for longer excursions, we put them in the Rhino's, RZR's, etc that have charging ports installed.

I tried to use MyTracks while walking at Gardiner dog park trails today Couldnt track my phone while walking!!! and like previously stated my batt went dead real fast

Any other gps apps that you guys would recommend? Should i give back country navigator free or pro a shot? Or should i get a stand alone. I have no 12v plug on my quad.

You can get a stand alone cheap black friday. I picked up my garmin for less that 100 Bucks with maps. The batteries last all day even in the cold and if they get weak it saves power and still tracks you for a while. I always carry a spare set of batteries just in case and never had a problem.

Etrex Venture HC - I had it for about four years now so there may be something better out there but for what I use it for it works great. All I do is turn the tracks on when I leave and tag the parking spot. Then if I get turned around I just pull it out of the glove box and see where I am at and how far from the parking area.

      Does anyone use GPS, whether on a device or app to record their ATV trail rides? I have been thinking about a section where our members can upload let's say a .gpx file and share their rides on a google map for others to see where there are riding areas. Not sure if this is something of interest or how much it would be used, so just trying to get an idea.
      Importing routes from files like xml, lmx, tour, freshroute, gpx, kmz, kml

      It was a cold and windy day of Track'in !! How cold and windy you ask ?? Well, when I unloaded the bike it was 2 deg F (-16.6c) with winds between 30 & 40 mph, so the wind chill was about -25 deg F (-31c), but the sun was out, there was no dust, no bugs & no people ... so IT WAS A GREAT DAY !! WOO HOO !!
      Hope you enjoy the video !!
