    Default Course walk - there's an app for that!

    I spotted this on EN this morning: http://blog.talkinghorse.net/2011/09...-for-that.html Here's the website: http://www.coursewalkapp.com/ It's still pending approval in the app store. I can't wait!

    I pretty much do the exact same thing with my Motion X GPS app and can take photos of my fences as waypoints along the course. Love that app!!

    I test drove the app in a big field tonight. It has some really neat features! When you start you enter the name of the event, the level, optimum speed (in mpm). There's a record button to start, a little jump button to mark where the jumps are, you can number them and use letters for combos and take a picture. There's a pause feature so you can walk around the jump without adding to the distance. Once you're done you can view the track. The orange numbers show the jumps, the blue numbers are minute markers (so cool!!).

    I have used other tracking apps like motion x, but this one is way easier to use, and everything is in meters and mpm. And it was way cheaper than a wheel I can't wait to try it at Marborough this weekend!

    I downloaded it over the weekend and played with it on my cross country course at the house. It is awesome!!! I love that I can mark where the jumps are and if they are ABC combinations. Plus it providing my minute marks, heaven! LOL. Also, it has a link to all the USEA dressage tests.

    What a great new app!!!

    I think there was some combination of user error and the GPS not being quite as accurate as it should be. It added 500-600 meters to the course. However, I was rushing big time. I think if I gave the GPS more time to catch up and figure out where I was it would have been more accurate. The app itself is really cool.

    I'll give it another shot in a few weeks. Meanwhile, I'll keep using it to measure distances at home for gallop sets

    It added about 50 meters to my course. even if I paused before the jump it still traced me walking around the jump. other than that, AWESOME app!

    For those with problems re: adding meters for waling around the jumps... I guess the solution would be to climb the jump! I used to do that all the time when I was a teenager - now, 5 years later at my first BN back, and I looked at that 2'6" log and said "no way josé" haha


    Really excited to try this!

    Maggie, are you using the iPhone or android version? The gps appears a lot slower on android and you may have to wait and let it catch up before restarting the recording.

    For quicker support, please go to www.coursewalkapp.com/support . We want to make sure the app works as expected.

    The other way is to just put the phone on the fence, walk around, and pick it back up.
