I am after any good and any iphone/android apps with support for custom maps or aussie maps that can show the trail maps with current gps, not requiring any 3g/net access, so must be 100% offline.

breadcrumb tracking , with speed results etc...

Aussie ski maps arent 100% top view either, so any custom maps must be 100% 3rd party created.

So anyone using anything cool or are all skiers poor bastards with 1998 nokias?

Or do we need someone to make an app and co-label a ski.com.au 'APP'

I use Ski Tracks on the Iphone. It does not have trail maps, but does do tracking with speed result, total vertical, lifts, ski vertical, max speed and slope. You can upload your tracks on to a map, but I have not, as yet done that.

There is Open Piste Maps which is rather sparse for Australia at the moment. I have mapped some of Thredbo from my GPS tracks from 10 days ago, but there is a big delay updating (for some reason).

I had Open Street Maps loaded (which takes effort) in the meantime. That was on a portable GPS, though. No idea about phones. Horrible, noisy, intrusive things.

I don't believe maps exist in Australia for this but it wont be too far off. Pretty cool stuff, watch the video. I believe it will be ported to Android soon as well.

This is made by the same vendor as the one which produces the tickets, sells hire etc... in Thredbo, Perisher, CP and Selwyn. Not exactly what you are looking for in terms of tracking but this ski resort mobile app development space is very interesting. Apps should keep getting better.

I liked iTrailmap, one of the cool looking ones.

Now if only gps+3g didnt drain the battery so fast and it lasted from 9am to 5pm.

hehe
