Endomondo

Anybody use Endomondo?

It seemed like a fun app., so I downloaded it to my Samsung Galaxy S II this morning and took my dog for a walk to try it out. After about a 2 km. stroll, it showed that I'd gone over 40 kms.! I wonder if I should give up on this or give it another try.

Used it for 8 months. The pro version is nice. Sometimes it goes mad and tells me I rode at 90kmh on the flat but its rare.

Went for a little ride this morning and it worked like a charm.

What are the advantages of the pro version?

Don't have any of those. Anything based on a GPS tracking system is only as accurate as the available signal and based on my own iPhone experience in and around Montreal - it doesn't take much to screw things up. Think this year I'll be cutting back on electronics as much as is practical.

Do you think Strava is better?

More data. seems to be a little better tweaked on the autopause and voice coach features. Lots of data available. More than I want.

i prefer using cardiotrainer, it has many nice features and does not overestimate on distance like many of the gps programs do,
