hi guys, can anyone help me here before I sling my phone out of the window :(

I know there's loads of fitness apps with great social features etc like strava.... but can anyone point me in the right direction for an app that basically does what my old garmin etrex does...

I want to load or download a pre-made gpx offroad route into my phone, mount it on the bars and follow the route.

Any ideas?

thanks for your help

    Has open cycle map
    You can download lots of routes
    Bit fiddly to us but it's free and works well

    I use Strava for route plotting. Plot a route, export as TCX or GPX, export file to windows then move onto your device, in my case a Edge 800 (never tried a phone before so not sure on the file/folder structure) and off you go.
