/ Does runkeeper carry on working when it loses 3g signal?
Yes, it keeps it on the phone and will upload it the next time you have a signal.
If you're spending a lt of time in an area with no mobile signal beware that your battery may run down faster as the phone ramps the cellular radio power to try and get a connection. I use an external battery case when using runkeeper for more than 3-4 hours.
Nice one guys, cheers
I tried it in Florida without roaming on as it would of cost me about £300 and it didn't work but maybe it would of if I let it carry on and then waited till I got back to where I was staying and uploaded it via wifi!
Also, I'll be taking my usb battery pack!
It will work (as another said turn off your 3g to save on battery) but I found that if you're ascending/descending steep terrain the pacing gets all wonky and you'll be logging 5min/km ascents with a vertical gain of 300m! And then the next km will be 20min+ without any altitude gain..
