Google My Tracks 'deprecated'

Discussion in 'Riding Gear and Bike Accessories/Parts' started by Rexxy, Mar 25, 2016.

  1. I just updated all my phone apps and found that My Tracks is going to be forcibly disabled at the end of April 2016.
    I use this app to record where I ride, and it is the simplest app ever that just works. No ads, no social media crap, no in-house purchases.
    No doubt it is being taken away because it doesn't produce any useful data or revenue for google.
    So, what to replace it with?
    For me, a replacement would have to have the same no bullpit approach - no ads, no social crap, etc. I need an app that will record my speed, altitude, location, moving time, total time, event time. Nothing fancy, no back to base alarms, cloud support, emergency sms or reminders. I don't give a crap about calories or lap times. Just record my trip.
    If it could combine all that with a decent fuel log similar to 'Motorcycle Fuel Log', all the better.
    Preferably a dedicated MOTORBIKE app - not a repuposed cycling app.
    Any suggestions?

  2. Depending on what features you used most in MyTracks, here are some other apps you might want to try:

    • Strava
    • Endomondo
    • Map My Run
    • Map My Hike
    • GPS Logger for Android
    • GPX Viewer

  5. usage: The most current sense of deprecate is “to express disapproval of.” In a sense development still occasionally criticized, deprecate has come to be synonymous with the similar but etymologically unrelated word depreciate in the sense “belittle”: He deprecated the importance of his work.

    Is THIS what you mean????

  6. Google's word, not mine. The yanks have a way of butchering English, especially in the IT world. Oriented is another of my pet hates.
