Dirt Bike GPS Apps.

dirt bike apps - gps kit

GPS Kit for IPhone only is one of those underrated apps that you stumble upon from time to time.

It only has 61 ratings (4.1 stars) and it is ranked #167 on Apple Apps Store for GPS.

But it managed a  place in TIME magazine in 2011, ranked as one of the 15 best gifts for fathers day, and it has come along way since then.

This app contains a lot of great GPS features for dirt bike riding.

The dashboard contains all the right information you would expect from a GPS app such as speed, elevation, coordinates and riding time.

It also provides complete topographical world maps and you can mark hundreds of way-points with it. The maps also operate offline if you have pre-loaded them so you don’t have to worry about internet access.

You can also import GPX track files with this app and it also has a social feature so you can track your friends that are riding with you if they also have the app.

dirt bike apps - locus map pro

Locus Map Pro for Android only contains downloadable maps for the entire world.

With Locus Map you can create your own trails, import your own GPX track files, create way-points and you can also upload your own photos onto the tracks.

There is also a smart GPS power feature that preserves your phone battery as much possible while in use. A great idea for dirt bike riding.

Locus Map Pro also can be used offline when you are riding deep in the forest and have no internet connection.

dirt bike apps - osmand

OsmAnd +- for both IPhone and Android is a super popular GPS app that is mainly used for street and city use but it’s also good for the trails as well.

It’s also a popular app for skiers who need to navigate the more remote parts of the ski field and I’ve been told its also popular with boating enthusiasts.

Osmand comes with everything you would expect from a GPS app including maps for most of the world, and they continue to keep adding features which are mainly plugins that you pay extra for.

dirt bike apps - motionX

MotionX GPS for IPhone and Apple Watch would probably be my choice for an IPhone GPS app.

It has won numerous awards around the internet and they claim they have 5 million active users which is impressive.

What I really like about this app is that the interface is really easy to use and see. The buttons and text and large and it really easy to use and navigate.

You can save up to 300 individual tracks on this app and thousands of way-points so you can store your tracks for future use.

Also, for Apple Watch fans, this app runs great just off your Apple watch which is one of the very few GPS apps that can operate effectively from your wrist.

Trail/Track Finder Dirt Bike Apps

dirt bike apps - motoguide

MotoGuide for both IPhone and Android is a fairly new app that displays tracks and trails information as well as dirt bike events around the USA.

Their database of trails are not complete and there is a plenty more to add, but this app is a handy app for finding local motocross tracks and enduro trails.

In the future, this app will be brilliant but there is still some work to be done.

The interface is great, with plenty of images and all the information a user would require to make the right track choice for the riding day.

Keep an eye on this app!

Riding Analytics Apps

dirt bike apps - litpro

LitPro

Calling LitPro an app is like calling a Ferrari a bicycle.

Although the system runs on IPhone, it more of a complete ecosystem of data tracking tools for pro motocross riders who want to take their riding game to the next level.

The LitPro system is so comprehensive that I wrote a complete LitPro review here.

Basically though, the LitPro system is a high speed GPS unit that fits to your helmet and relays lightening fast data back to to your IPhone or IPad as you are racing around a motocross track.

The data is then analyzed and the system will find ways for you to become a faster rider by finding the fastest way you should be taking around corners as well as a myriad of other techniques.

Apart from that, it includes a host of other features and services that you can read more about in my LitPro review article.

In fact if you don’t shave at least 2 seconds off your motocross riding game, they will give you your money back.

The LitPro system isn’t cheap at around $500 but is an essential tool if you are a professional rider looking to get an edge on your competition.

dirt bike apps - mxbuddy

MX Buddy for IPhone only is a great LitPro alternative for riders that are on a budget.

To use the app you can either carry your phone with you while you ride or you can sync it with a GPS receiver which is the high speed data option.

After you have captured your data, the app will analyse your riding game and find ways to reduce your lap times by finding the fastest lines around the track.

MXBuddy can also track your heart rate data using an optional Polar heat rate band and it will also give you live lap time updates if you are carrying your phone with you and have earbuds attached.

You can also use MX Buddy to track your bike maintenance as well as be able to record your most successful bike setups so you can remember your best setup at a quick glance. Very cool.

MXBuddy will also backup your riding data to the cloud so you don’t have to worry about losing it.

Aside from the analytics, the MX Buddy app can also be used for trail riding to track yourself on GPS and you can also upload GPX files as well.

The cost of MXBuddy is $7 for the app and $150 for the optional GPS unit.

 I have written a LitPro alternative article that reviews MXBuddy here if you want to learn more this app.

 

 

dirt bike apps - crossbox

Although it has ‘lap timing’ in the name, CrossBox is a complete racing analytics app that is comparable with MXBuddy.

CrossBox collects data via GPS unit that you fix to your helmet and you can either download that data to the app at the end of your ride or stream it live to your phone when you are riding (you will need to carry your phone with the live option)

CrossBox will find the fastest lines on your chosen motocross track and will also analyse your best theoretical lap, lap segments, distance, speed and a host of other important analytics data to get you riding faster.

CrossBox also has the live laps feature meaning that the app will advise you of your lap times while you are riding provided that you are wearing earbuds.

The costs for CrossBox is 300 euros (about $350 USD) which includes the app, lifetime membership and the GPS unit that you fix to the top of your helmet.

 I have written a LitPro alternative article that reviews CrossBox here if you want to learn more.

You will need a timing transponder for the MyLaps app so your lap times can be collected and recorded into the MyLaps database.

Social Dirt Bike Apps

dirt bike apps - lapking racing

LapKing for IPhone only is a social racing app. What’s that you say?

LapKing will collect your racing times on any track using a GPS device that you fix to your bike.

Then, after you go riding, your racing times are uploaded to a central leader board for that track where you can compare your race times with friends and other racers!

Not only that, but you can also talk smack to your friends just like social media. Very cool!

The app itself is easy to use and resembles more like a video game then a GPS timing app which makes it even more fun.

You can use the app for dirt bikes, 4 wheelers, road bikes and any other high speed sports where you can compete against other racers.

The app is free and the GPS unit will set you back about $250 which they regularly discount on the website.

If you want to race your friends and claim bragging rights and have blast in the process, you need to get this app!

Motohub for Android and IPhone is a fairly new app to the market with a lot of potential.

It is a social hub of information for all things dirt bikes that includes classifieds, track and event information, products and services and many other cool dirt bike related stuff.

The Motohub also has a place where you can talk live with pro riders which is pretty cool.

Further development is needed on this app as it is still young but I predict that this app will be a powerhouse in the future. Highly recommended.

The MotoHub is free and is available for both Android and IPhone.

dirt bike apps - offroad amino

Off-Road Amino for IPhone and Android is another social network community that is fairly new but has grown very quickly.

This app has a really nice interface that looks far more like a social media platform then a forum which makes it popular among younger riders.

The app is full of useful information for new riders and members can also chat to other members and share their pics of their latest ride.

This app is a rising star and definitely worth checking out.
