Has anyone used "sportpal" for the blackberry or iPhone? I started using it in cunjunction with a Cateye Strada wireless computer and they don't agree very closely at all. When I was using rollout on the front tire for the computer they were WAY off >1 mile difference. I started using Cateye's std rollout for a 700x23c, now the difference is a little over a 1/2 mile.

The Cateye has the highest milage.

Sportpal work off the gps in the phone

I'm pretty happy with SportyPal so far, I just wish it had an autopause feature for when I'm stopped at a light. I also use a dedicated HRM and I find the calculated calories are very close, with in 3%.

I use it on a WM phone, and have been happy with it. You do pay for stopping at lights, so it gets skewed on time/speed calculations, but otherwise I have been very happy with it and find it pretty accurate.
