I've been looking for a good app on my phone for riding. I often will have google maps or Waze on (even I am not using it for directions). Google does log my routes and I can go back and look at them via timeline. However, I was wondering if anybody had a motorcycle riding app that is more specific and would like to share their experience.

I found a new app called EatSleepRide. It has a social app component (which I don't personally care for) but it seems to be geared toward bike riders and logging rides. I plan to try it out this week. Anybody have any suggestions or experiences that they would like to share?

I’ve used fitness apps before. They log miles, route, various speed related data etc.

It is pretty good and can be used for logging as well as directions, there is also a paid version that can be setup to be used for emergency purposes and they also have a alarm system that can be installed on the bike that can be used with the app.
I have not used the alarm system or the emergency service parts of the app so can't really say anything good or bad about them.
But I do use the logging and directions and both work great in the Philippines so I would imagine that they would work just about anywhere.

I am using calimoto - it has ride logging and route planning/directions. Route planning is really nice - you can specify the level of "twistyness" for the roads on your route, you can add waypoints in addition to "from" and "to" points, you can generate random roundtrips of a given duration if you just want to go for a ride. Available on iOS and Android, and also has a web interface that makes route planning very easy - big computer screen and mouse beats fat finger on a small phone screen any day :)

I discovered really nice roads in my area through this app. Highly recommend.

Paid version unlocks "super-twisty" roads, but in my experience there is not that much difference between that and the next setting up. And you can always slap a waypoint on your favorite road if it gets omitted from the route.

There are some additional limitations for the free version - not all maps are available, some statistics in the ride log is not shown, and I think it limits you to only one regional map at a time, so you can not plan any long distance rides with it. I bought a subscription mostly to support developers, but used the additional maps on my rides from MA to NH.

It has a bit of social functionality - you can share your rides and browse rides shared by others, but I am not that big on the whole social aspect of riding and did not experiment much with it.

The free version is worth a look anyway, does not cost you anything if you don't like it.

I've heard good things about caliMoto but haven't used it.

I like Yamaha's MyRide app. Saves your route and tracks all kinds of neat stats (top speed, max lean angle, fastest braking, ect.).

So here's my question, I tried a couple of GPS routing apps. So far none do what I want them to. One let me plan a route, but it would not reroute to my next way point if I ventured off the current route. So any suggestions?
