I’m sharing a post from All Seasons Cyclist where he reviews the recently introduced Road ID iphone app. This looks like a great safety tool for runners and cyclists or anyone who does solo getaways to the outdoors. It’s still in beta, so input from users will be helpful as they do the fine tuning.
I just downloaded this a few days ago. I went out on a run since then, and I forgot I had it!
I’m sure that will be my experience a time or two, With the Find Friends app I’ve been using, I just keep a key person on the locater so I don’t need to remember. I think both systems have advantages and disadvantages.
This seems like a great alternative to purchasing a separate Garmin GPS tracker for long solo runs/ hikes as well! I’m looking forward to giving it a spin and seeing how battery life is impacted as well…thanks for the heads up!
You’re welcome. Let me know how it works on those hiking trails you run.
