GPS Odometer

GPS Odometer


A simple and easy to use odometer. GPS Odometer only does one thing, and does it well: measure distance travelled. Includes run in background capability. Ideal for almost anything that requires measuring outdoor distance travelled such as walking, running, driving, boating, hiking, and horseback riding. Please note that the home screen widget is for the full version only.

Common user mistakes:
- Do not try to test the app by pacing around in the same small area.
- Please note that GPS uses a lot of battery power.
- Satellite based GPS location does not work well indoors. Many apps use network based location because it does work indoors, but it is not accurate enough for use with this app. If the location icon is not solid in your status bar, that means your PHONE can't acquire a satellite GPS fix in that area.


Features:
- accurate to within 1 percent when compared to most car odometers under normal driving conditions.
- includes a timer
- includes pause / resume for each trip
- includes a lock to help prevent accidental reset/stop/start of your trip. After unlocked, it locks back in 9 seconds, or you can lock it yourself.
- includes displacement readout (straight line distance from your starting point)
- average speed readout in meters per second, feet per second, yards per second, kilometres per hour, miles per hour, nautical miles per hour
- actual speed readout (This may not be accurate at slow walking speeds)
- units include meters, kilometres, yards, feet, miles and nautical miles
- approximates distance travelled in some GPS dead spots such as driving through a tunnel by adding the as-a-bird flies distance to your trip.
- resumes tracking after restart (You must now enable this feature in settings)
- includes a custom calculator. Uses include taxi fare and energy burned while exercising

What this app does NOT do:
1) Does not record your route. Each trip has a start location, a last location, and a next-to-last location. No record of where you go is saved other than that. Only distance and time.
2) No location information ever leaves your device.
3) No maps. Only distance.

David Great app. Wife and I walk in the evenings and sometimes have to vary our routes. This app allows us to take any route and still know we made our distance goal. The accuracy is impressive and the timer let's us know if we were slacking off. I noticed that the creator of this app seems to provide good customer service and interest even for this free version. I would be comfortable supporting by buying his/her products.

Handy Dead accurate and works awesome for tracking multiple trips for project billing through the day. Might have to buy the full version of this one. Seriously if you have to track miles for several projects throughout the course of your day, this app is awesome.
