Android GuidePace release!

The GuidePace mountain travel time calculator is now available for Android, with all the same great features as the iOS version:
  • munter system calculator - class 1, 2 terrain  - hiking, skiing
  • chauvin system calculator - class 3, 4  terrain  - scrambling, snow climbing
  • technical system  calculator - class 5 terrain  -  rock, ice & mixed climbing

Thanks to folks for all the positive feedback that kept me psyched to get this version out!


  1. Enjoying the app for estimating ski touring, summer scrambling(big boots) and mountain running (trail shoes). With so many different activities I've started tracking actuals carefully and calibrating my rates for each activity. I have a spreadsheet set to calculate for R but if you ever get really keen to expand the app it would be cool to have two faces: one for solving T and one for solving R. Thanks for the app!

  2. Thanks for the feedback! I'm psyched to hear that you're finding GuidePace useful year-round.

    In an earlier version of the app, there was actually an option for back-calculating the rate. But, I ended up taking it out to simplify the user interface. I'll keep your feedback in mind, though, when I put out the next version!

    Cheers, Chris

  3. Hi Chris. I've just downloaded the app, but my only comment would be every time I open it, I have to switch the units to what I need. It'd be cool to have a 'global defaults' option, or have it remember the previous used units? Thanks!

    1. Wow, I've been wondering when I would get this feedback! I'm psyched to hear that someone outside the US is using GuidePace. This is a pretty easy patch to work in, I just wasn't sure if anyone cared! Thanks Dan.
      Cheers, Chris
