My Tracks travel tracker
Every journey begins with a single app?
This is a setting option worth keeping an eye on: my phone started blurting out journey details while I was standing in a queue at the Post Office.

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.

All the journeys I ventured out on - either on foot or by car - were recorded with near faultless accuracy, distances can be displayed in imperial or metric, the app is a paltry 2.8MB when installed and you can move it to your SD card if space is tight. ®
