I'm considering getting a Windows phone, but before I commit I'd appreciate your thoughts on the best GPS apps currently available for Windows phones? I'm looking for something that essentially replicates the recording functionality of a Garmin; logging the route on a map and the usual ride stats of speed, distance etc. I'm less interested in being guided round a route, so the phone would basically sit in a pocket.

Many thanks.

Sports Tracker? I've used both the Symbian version, and the Android version, and both were excellent.

Runtastic is a good option.

One thing too also consider with a WP is very poor bluetooth 4.0 support so if you decided you wanted HR/speed/cadence sensors further down the line it would be a struggle. iOS is great for this, Android is good and getting better all the time.

I use Edomondo running on a Nokia. I am not big in to data just nice to have stats as to where and how far I have been, but you can subscribe to extras so have a look.

+2 for Endomondo. Great software, accurate and easy to use. Doesn't eat a lot of power either, I have completed 4 hour rides and still had enough to call home, take a couple of photos. Couple of my mates have it so we compare routes against each other. Though all are aware it's not a race.
PS I have a four year old Nokia Mozart phone running Windows.Hope it helps
