A really nice bit o gprs software for your phone.



http://www.sportypal.com/

Its free, all you need is a compatable phone, gprs and the software.
It will give you a speed/time graph, top speed, average speed even the calories used.
Also shows you the route you've just done on a google map.
You can upload your route for friends to see etc.

Get it. Highly cool 8)

Nowt- I'm tryin' to track down summat that will work with my HP iPAQ 2210......... :cry: Have a GPS receiver for it, but of course it isn't a phone/windows mobile platform.

Still, it's good enough with just scanned OS maps on it.

Once I have the Sports Tracker started, I just pop it in my pocket and forget about it.

Its just cool once you have downloaded it when you get home, and if you find different areas/routes it plots them for you.

Also the geo tagged photos is nice

(plus it proves to Mrs P that 'That' is actually what I was out doing!! :lol: :lol:

SportyPal users can appearance their conditioning on a map, set goals, allotment their advance on Facebook and Twitter, see their advance on graphs, and more. It looks good.
