    GPS Windows 6.1 mobile?

    Hey all. Just getting back in to cycling. I have a windows mobile 6.1 smart phone with gps and i'm trying to find a good low cost (free would be nice ) gps program that will do the following things:


    Map my route either against google maps or against a previously stored mapset including areas where there are no roads
    measure instantaneous and average speed
    measure point a to b and overall distance
    measure current and total altitude changes preferably divided in to ascents and descents

    I know I could buy a cycle specific garmin or something that would have those features, but I already have a gps, i just need the software.


    So, anybody got any suggestions?


    Oh, and I just got to check 'cycle across the Golden Gate Bridge' off of my bucket list today

    check out my pictures on the other topic about "normal GPS"
    Anyone attach a "normal" GPS to thier bike

    in short, yes you can do it, is quite simple.

    i'm using TomTom, also google maps, and GPSmeter which also uses google maps

    got like 4 applications that are perfect for biking.

    there is also this cycling computer, which is pretty good, but i mostly use the GPS based ones.

    To the best of my knowledge Garmin software does not measure elevation changes, do TomTom or GPSmeter?
