Is it possible to install RWGPS?

Post by marpilli » Mon Sep 24, 2018 1:51 am

I've been reading through some of the side-load info, and I wondered if it's possible to install RWGPS (https://ridewithgps.com/)? I"m not at all familiar with Android. From what I've read it seems RWGPS must be loaded through the Google Play store and that option is no longer available.

I know there are alternatives (such as Kamoot). I'm familiar with RWGPS and would prefer to use it if at all possible.

Thanks!

It will be possible. It's mainly a matter of finding the apk outside of the Play Store. I don't know whether it's a simple install or whether it relies on Google Play Services also being installed (which is a bit more complicated).
