Default The app that inspires tens of millions to go cycling

If you aren't a keen cyclist then you may not have heard of it but for
those of us who do like pedalling around on two wheels it isn't an
exaggeration to say that the app has been revolutionary.
Utilising the GPS (global positioning system) software on your
smartphone, it enables you to record your ride, and then see an accurate
line of the route you have cycled on an electronic map.

Is there any reason why this smartphone app would not work in a car
(like the built-in satnav app does)?

Or maybe, with more obvious scope for a practical use, in an HGV, a
delivery van or a council bin-lorry?

It's nothing new, runners have been using this for a decade.

And to answer your question, I doubt it minds that you're travelling
fast, so it should work anywhere.


Simply driveling for driveling's sake again, eh, Birdbrain? G

More from Birdbrain Macaw's (now "James Wilkinson" LOL) abnormal sociopathic
world:
"However I do like to make fun of people. For example, a professor once
told a secretary off for having a topless male model as the wallpaper on her
computer. So I told her he was a hypocrite, and that he had pictures of
transvestites on his (not as wallpaper, but stored on the hard disk). She
spread that around quite quickly."

So you think there are people who wouldn't cycle, but would just because
they can see where they went?


Gee... why are all your questions as retarded as all your statements,
Birdbrain? BG

More of Birdbrain Macaw's (now "James Wilkinson" LOL) Nazism:

"Unfortunately Hitler was stopped."
MID:

"I'd have been a conscientious objector, mainly because I would have taken
Hitler's side. Better yet, defect and blow up my own people."
MID:

"Trump is a mild Hitler. The real deal would be better"
MID:

"Are you one of those Nazi haters that does so because "it's the right thing
to do"? Tell me one thing they did wrong, just one."

"Oh come on, wars are fun!"
