I currently use imapmyride, the free version.

1. Is there a way to save your avg and top speed after your ride is ended and saved. (I can calculate avg speed obviously but I would rather it just show up and I'm semi-new to the cycling scene so top speed is still pretty awesome to me)

2. Are there apps that do this and can be integrated to display the route you took on facebook?

I am willing to pay $10 for one of the higher end apps but I want it do meet all my requirements.

Thanks guys!

Have you looked at BikePRO or Bikenik?

A great little App i found was Velodroid, it is fast, accurate and responsive. What more could you want?

I stumbled on this review and have been using it since. Gives a good run down of the features.

Despite it's name, RunKeeper offers the functionality you're looking for. It offers a variety of "activities" which include "Cycling" and "Mountain Biking". I believe the app itself is free but requires a monthly or yearly fee. I've used the app for about 6 months to keep track of my jogging routes and it's offers a lot of data (which can indeed be shared on Facebook).

You can also try Cyclymeter GPS... I was using it before investing on a Garmin unit for my bike. The best $5 spent. Hope it helps

I love runtastic which also allows your to choose different activities but it offers a ton of info on your workout

For my riding and running I use runkeeper.... it just lets you switch the type of activity but has been accurate enough. Like route is almost always dead on and speed has been almost dead on. I tried mapmyride and I liked it but if I remember right I didnt end up staying with it because some of the features runkeeper gives for free mapmyride charges...
