    Smart phone, GPS for speed runs question(s)

    I have 2 Android phones (5 and a 7) that I no longer use. Neither have service, is there anyway I can use them for speed runs?

    If so, how.....and what app should I be using?

    Thanks in advance!!!

    I have never had any luck with smartphone gps. I used an old iPhone 5s with a sim and I didnít have enough distance for it to get a proper reading. From what I read, smartphone gps is only accurate to about 20 feet but a gps unit you can buy can be as good as 10 foot accuracy. For speed runs I reccomend that you buy a Garmin forerunner series gps. Found on eBay for about $50
