can you sync these apps with mfp? i use both apps and wondered if i can upload my records onto this site, i know i can add it manually, but can i just sync them?

any help or advice?

have a check on the apps tab. There is a list there with easy connecting links

Thanks, i have looked on that tab, but there's not many apps on there

I think those are all they currently sync with. There may be future plans for others but I suppose you'd just have to keep checking or use one of the apps that already syncs

I use Endomondo and love it and it sync's right up to MFP

i use MapMyRide on my phone, i've got a phone holder on the bike, the app uses GPS to track my route, similar to a SatNav, and gives a detailed route map, and exercise breakdown that uploads online and can be shared, it'd be quite useful to sync it with this site

Curious. Is this the kind of thing where you can enter your walks and make a virtual map like to a pretend destination?

I've been wanting to try something like that.

not as such, it's a GPS based app that tracks your route, you actually have a map on the screen the same as a SatNav, so you can keep an eye on your location too, (you can use it as a satnav too)

Honestly, I use MapMyHike to GPS track my hikes, the routes, the average speed, and the total distance, but I would NOT want it to sync with MFP. It gives you inflated figures for your calorie burns. I wear a Polar HRM, so I know what I actually burn.

2/16 hiked 4.22 miles for 765 calorie burn. MMH had 822.
2/10 hiked 9.11 miles for 1966 calorie burn. MMH had 2066.
2/3 hiked 4.23 miles for 756 calorie burn. MMH had 1019.

Total over estimate was 420 calories by MMH. I'd be trying to figure out how to correct that if it synced and put in the wrong data.

You might consider switching to Endomondo. In my experience, Endomondo maps a lot more accurately - and it easily syncs with MFP (though it does inflate the calories burned).
