I use Runkeeper, but if I had to start over again, I'd probably start with "MapMyRide". I'm sticking with runkeeper because of the 5 years of data I already have there.

The screen is by far the biggest consumer of power from the phone. You can help this with 2 devices: A pebble watch + phone. My phone can last me most all day running like this.

Don't worry about rear window visibility. Lots of vehicles have 0 visibility in the rear window, and in fact, you don't even need a windshield mirror by law.

Amazingly, even in wet conditions, I can lock up my tires when braking... Seems traction is key, rather than the braking mechanism. But, to each their own, I suppose.
