X grip?

^^^ Does that X-grip work out for dirt riding? I use one on my Vstrom, but I've not dared hammer through the whoops with it!


Tech support! I cached OSM to my sd card, but I can't figure out how to get the topos.

I actually already have topo's for Backcountry Navigator Pro. Can I use those?

I gotta say, ever since you fixed the google terrain maps, I have been loving this. Before it was a good substitute for my GPS--more or less the same. Now, with the google terrain maps, it is SOOO much better than my gps. Love it.

Keep up the good work.

I guess that depends on your type of dirt riding. I have no problem with the fairly light trail riding I do on my KLR, but if you're jumping your WR450 like Travis Pastrana you could always throw a rubber band on it for extra security.

I've been using the x-grip for a couple thousand miles now, both on and off road and my phone has never even slipped. I am quite happy with it.
But I ain't Travis Pastrana, either! :)

I want to change view to satellite image, and then cache that satellite image for an area I have tracks in. I know how to cache an area in just regular view, but I am lost on the satellite part? I am using a google nexus 7. Do I do it from a pc on google earth then email it to myself? Do it in google earth app on the tablet, or does dsm app have a 'switch to satellite view' that I am just too stupid to find?

Downloaded it yesterday, really think this is gonna be a great tool once I get the hang of it.

Find the layers button (looks like a map). It's between the words "Dual Sport Maps" and the Magnifying Glass icon. Press "Base Map". From there you are good to go. You can cache tiles for a specific set of tracks from the Search menu as well. Watch the videos on the youtube channel for details.

It's not about that. It's more about they fact that this was a colossal effort which costs me more than it brings in every month BEFORE you factor in my time. If I thought iOS would deliver me 10 times the revenue I'd consider it a worthwhile time sink, but I doubt it does more than double it. Even if time were free, doubling my revenue would still be a loser for me. The app sells about 32 copies a month, it has since the first month. I get $14 a copy. The website costs more than that.

Have you thought about doing a Kickstarter for doing an iOS version?

Just a thought, I know this more a "labor of love" project than any kind of revenue stream. I continue to be impressed with the version I have been using on my Android. But I jut got an iPhone and it would be cool to have it there too.

Thanks again for all of your hard work!

My feeling is that Google has absolutely NAILED the road stuff with Google Navigator (and obviously Dual Sport Maps is a fabulous off road app ;). Even if you are an "iPhone guy" I think buying a cheap/used Android device just for your bike is a better use of money than buying a Garmin. I got a Droid with a broken screen for $0 and repaired it with no experience or tools in advance for <$30 for parts and tools. Youtube told me exactly what to do. Smart phones are becoming ubiquitous, just get an extra one for your bike. Verizon is now required to allow Wifi tethering so I can even use my "real" phone as an internet source for my nav phone when I need new maps on the trail.

If I thought I could raise $100K on Kickstarter, I would do it, but I don't. Clearly the software isn't worth $100K or I would have earned that much in sales from the Android store. This may sound like a lot, but trust me that would be a discount. If you wanted to pay someone to develop the app and website for you it would cost a hell of a lot more than that. These are non trivial tools and this shit costs money. I think while it's awesome it also is just too small a market OR to small a marketing budget to turn it into a business. I didn't get into this to be a business anyway. In fact, I never actually planned to release the app. Some fellow ADVers insisted when I showed them the app at our regular burger and beer meetup.
