N97 Tour: Day 8, Highest to Lowest

with 3 comments

For my second challenge, I took a journey to the tallest point in San Francisco and used Sports Tracker to draw our path down to the lowest point. Matt Bennett and Dan Silvers joined me in taking the 37 bus up the winding roads to Twin Peaks where we climbed the steep stairs to the top.

The plan was to use the incredible view to see Mount Davidson, which is really the highest point in the city (according to Wikipedia), but the intense weather made it impossible to see more than 100 yards in any direction.

From there, Dan and I took the F Market line back up towards the coast (losing rockstar Matt once we neared the hotel) and made our way to the waterline to catch the lowest point. Unfortunately, both of our SportsTracker applications had a hard time dealing with the lack of consistent GPS reception and required a quick reboot to get the data loaded properly. Mine appeared to stop working shortly after we left the mountain peak, but Mobile Dan’s worked a lot better. Check out these links to get to our SportsTracker pages and take a look at the difference in elevation. I didn’t realize it would be so dramatic!

Also take a look at the video captured from the top of the peak live using Qik.

Once again, we have a lot more media to put up that was captured on our adventure and this post will be updated once all of it has been uploaded properly .

  2. Which version of Sports Tracker are you running? The N97 doesn’t appear to be officially supported by NST. Are you using a beta version?

  3. The version we’ve been running was found on a quick Google search of “sportstracker n97”.
