5. Camp Where ($4.99, Android, iOS)

073114-top-10-motorcycle-apps-05-camp-where

This one is for the adventurers who like going off the beaten path. The ones who prefer campgrounds to hotels, and pack tents on the back of their adventure bikes. The Camp Where app gives detailed information on “over 11,500 public campgrounds in the United States and Canada.” These include national parks, national forests, state parks, state forests, Canadian provincial parks, and county and city campgrounds, all accessible by car or motorcycle. What’s more, much of the information on the app is accessible without the need for an internet connection.

Coordinate information is available for each campground, allowing you to input exact directions into a GPS device. Camp Where even provides information like phone numbers, reservation info, RV hookups, and weather information so you can make an informed decision on which campground to ride to. While the app is optimized for iOS devices, the link below will also take Android users to a less-optimal, but equally informative version.

    Nice story, Trizzle! Readers can also check out: Park the Bike, which shows moto-parking near you, the AMA Superbike and Flat Track apps, which give you real-time, lap-by-lap results of live races, an app I use called “Speed,” which you can use to measure speed without a nav app, gas buddy, which uses crowd-sourced info to get you the cheapest gas, and my new favorite: I Pee Address, which finds you the nearest public restroom!

    I love Moto Minder…great for keeping track of all of your maintenance performed and timelines…especially if you have multiple motorcycles.

    Allow me to introduce http://www.tourstart.org which is my web page where motorcyclists from more than 50 countries have created 15 000 private and public motorcycle rides. On the web page you can find events, tour, bike clubs and ride planner. All tours can be transferred to at Garmin or TomTom. Further, we have an iPonne app with voice guidede turn-by-turn navigation, so whether you create the ride on the app or web, you have instant access to the rides, and by a single click you start the navigation. Price?? Free to download and use – the only cost is a minor subscription fee to use use the navi.

    Good suggestions! I’ll have to try the Pirelli Diablo Super Biker. Another app that I found useful was the Law Tigers app in case of an accident

    Looks like there is a new app from Butler maps guys. Rever.co looks really good! Love butler maps, so anything they do has gotta be good.

    OK, I’m not totally objective (just so you know), but just check out MotoMap on my site MotoMappers.com It’s my pride and joy; The result of my year long quest for the perfect Motorcycle Navigation App.

    MotoMap’s just been updated and let’s you:
    – Access Thousands of Scenic Routes
    – Navigate Routes
    – Track your Rides
    – Import GPX Files

    Just check it out. If you don’t like it, don’t buy it :-)

      I suppose I could see a use for this app by Touring (Gold Wing), or Sport Touring (BMW), or maybe even high-end Harley weekend riders, since they are most likely to have compatible phones. But I don’t know a single true Biker in my whereabouts that can afford, much less have, an iOS type phone, so what good is your app for those of us that put in 12-24K+ miles a year on our cruisers, but would rather spend money on our passions, food or each other than giving it to Apple for a status symbol no Biker gives two shakes about?

      • http://www.motomappers.com Guido

        I get your point. Although I don’t quite agree with the iPhone being a status symbol. I guess opinions vary on that one :-)
        Anyway, once the financials are right, I’ll invest in an Android version. Unfortunately not in the position to develop on 2 platforms at the same time.

          Kudos for bikering up and answering back.

    Im looking for a trip trakcker app. So, every time I stop I can update my trip on Facebook, twitter, etc. Kind of mapquest route map with pinned out stops. Seen anything like that? Im leaving for Sturgis and thought a route update would be fun.
