    He's got an app built, which seems similar to what I want to build, given the time. Competition validates the space, I guess.

    This is the one that turned me on to the whole concept of a ride report. Started out very similar to MbMC.

    I think you should keep an eye on Rever. They seem like competitor in the mobile space, especially when it comes to route tracking, route planning, and route sharing, with some (limited) social media functionality.

    Turn-by-turn navigation for motorcycles Points of interest

    The fastest route isn t always what bikers need. Criteria like curviness, road quality, scenery, and elevation gain, can be more important than time and distance. NaviRider is a mobile navigation app

    That sounds like the closest thing to what I've wanted to do yet. I'm going to have to take a closer look. Thanks for the link!

    Interestingly, it's the MapBox vector map javascript API that I hacked to enable pulling from a phone based data store for offline maps.

    Could it be that Google is looking to become one of your competitors?

    http://www.androidpolice.com/2017/11/08/google-maps-v9-...

    At least for mapping and navigation, it would be hard to compete with the ubiquity of Google Maps. But I'd say you're safe as far as social networking goes. Google is notoriously bad at getting the social networking part right.

    Anecdotally, it seems like there's been more news than usual coming out about changes/improvements to Google Maps.

    Yea, there's no direct competing with Google but there's plenty of space "between the floorboards" as they say where one can still find a niche.

    Google is focused on tools. They are notoriously bad at understanding social networking, and more over they are not about story telling.
