try "HD Rides" - its a pretty nice setup where you can choose pre made rides in your chosen areas, save them to favorites or track your own ride to save it later.

It also has dining and lodging contacts along the way.... oh yea and HD dealers.... cause you always need a "rescue point" with an HD!

Victory has a route tracking app as well. Victory Rides. It's free and it works pretty well.

Waze is a great gps program with good features and is Free!
I use "Victory Rides" from RiderX to record a ride. it has a good weather feature and shows what Victory dealers are in the Area also.
It also is a free App.

+1 Waze is a nice App

I've had RiderX for a while. Seemed like a cool app.

However, on our 360-mile ride yesterday, the battery was dropping even though it was plugged in. Per the RiderX website, they state that excess GPS usage will cause battery drain.

I call BS, because my Garmin app (which does not require an internet connection) also tracked my ride allowing the battery to slowly charge up.

It's a shame, I would have liked to have recorded out route yesterday, but I couldn't or my battery would have died. And, it seems that their tech support email address isn't monitored because I sent them a query a week ago and have yet to get a response.

The only problem with the Garmin app is I can't share the recorded route. I'm gonna send them a email with an enhancement request on that.
