If you come across something interesting on your meanderings you can add waypoints and statistic markers directly into the app. There are also a host of options to change the accuracy and frequency of datum points with an eye to less than ideal GPS reception, long journeys and handset battery life.

My Tracks supports data collection from Zephys’ HxM Bluetooth heart-rate monitor as well as ANT heart-rate monitors, and SRM power meters, speed and cadence sensors, assuming your phone supports the ANT communications protocol to start with.
