MCN Ride Logger

I spent £4.99p on the mcn ride logger app for the iphone today and went for a spin. I'm not going to say the speed i was doing but the logger had it wrong by 28 mph. Now my speedo can't be that far out.

Got one too

I got the app a week or so ago and I think it's fairly accurate. I had a thought (and it might have said something in the small print but I didn't read it) but, if I were stopped by the law and they checked my phone, is it admissible as evidence? (if I had occasionally strayed slightly above the speed limit:winkie:)

iphone app

not got one of those phones, hardly use the phone as it goes.

not sure on that app though, what if you were to get stopped, is that admissable as evidence??

nice for pub talk, but what is it really good for on public roads?..just asking.:smile

app

I have used mine twice now , Its just a gadget :) nothing more , I love it :biggrin:

As for the admissible in court thing . I wouldn't of thought so due to it not reading the same as the speedo. This is common with all sat nav's which is what it does effectively . The speedo on any ( most ) motor vehicles read wrong after about 50mph so if you were to ever do say 155mph ( on the dial ) the sat nav would show 11% less or something like .

speedos

normally are designed to read up to 10% over to take account of tyre wear etc. (ie, at 60mph, your true speed will be slightly less).

Is the logger not based on GPS? (Don't have iphone, or the app so don't know).

As for admissible as evidence, I can't see it - the calibration / error factor for a start.

Hi David

Can I ask where you had your phone located when you were recording rides?
