    Any of you guys use this? It's awesome for running, cycling, whatever. I don't really use the log features much since I do that in a notebook but the mapping feature is better than any thing else I've seen. By far the most useful feature for me is the elevation graph, especially for planning a bike trip or something. Plus you can search the running routes of other users to get ideas of good places to run.

    You can even export routes to google earth and all kinds of cool stuff. It will also calculate average speed and calories and all that nonsense based on the time you took. I'm really impressed by the features they put in it.

    Example of one of my saved routes.

    Oh yeah you can also save it as a garmin GPS course if you happened to have one of those handheld GPS devices. That would probably be sweet for a long cycling trip or a hike or something.

    This one shows the route drawer, and with the aerial image view on. You can place drinking fountains and parking and stuff on there as well.

    And this is the training log. You can also make a daily log entry with general things like weight, resting heart rate that day, weather, and general comments. You can even track which pair of running shoes you used on a particular run and see that shoes total mileage. :rofl:

    I was wondering how far this circuit I was running in the PM was, and this told me exactly.

    I guess it doesn't actually list the route/give directions? That would be a lot cooler if it did, so I didn't have to zoom in and figure that much myself.. would be easier to modify routes based on distance of each road, etc too

    or does it and I'm fucking missing it somewhere? :o

    somehow there are 80 in my area, dunno if some people created a lot or just that many people in my small area are on here, then again, college town so a lot of people from out of town have prob listed routes

    ugh I'm not seeing the find streets when viewing a route, unless you have to register for it.. oh well, I'll look later, feeling too stupid right now :o
