Running, Walking Routes: iPhone App

Do you love your iphone apps? Here is a new one for you to check out that tracks your walking/running/biking routes. The review comes from Fitness Test Drive, a Vancouver-based blog that reviews all the latest and greatest in the world of fitness gizmos and gadgets.

What It Is: An amazingly comprehensive iPhone app for tracking the walking and running routes around you (its database contains more than a million routes worldwide). Follow the app’s suggested nearby routes based on time or distance (less than a mile all the way up to 20 or 30 miles and beyond). Or, create your own route and save it in the app.

Other features include a place to log your training sessions, calorie-burn estimates, pace tracker and, my favorite, GPS tracking, accurately displaying where you are along the route.
