Mountain biking with the htc desire android smartphone

I’m just back from 2 weeks’ hard riding/guiding in the Alpujarras region of Southern Spain. One of my new toys before I went was an HTC Desire smartphone. The Desire runs on Google’s Android mobile operating system which powers many of the new phone models trying to compete with Apple’s ubiquitous iPhone. What’s this got to do with mountain biking? Well like many smartphones, the Desire has built-in GPS, a compass, fast internet-connection and a lovely big colour touch-screen. Put all this together and you have the potential for the ultimate navigation device.

Mountainbike Scotland: The Highlands

All the routes in this book are set out with the need to plan a day's mountainbiking in mind. The grading system used was designed to help identify the routes that will suit you. Text descriptions then give a flavour of the day. These are followed by a breakdown of the route into individual waypoints. These are accompanied by their OS grid references. Physical trail descriptions of the riding between the waypoints complete the picture. A great guide book with 50 mountain bike routes in the Scottish Highlands.
