  1. FINALLY! I have been running in NYC and estimating rudimentary mileages based on mapquest or googlemaps – except that both of those do the quickest drive route, so all of a sudden, they’re veering off my running path to head up the FDR or whatever. This is awesome!

  2. As a runner, this is one of the coolest things I’ve run across. Using my inexpensive pedometer gives me wildly varying results and I just don’t have the cash for the more sophisticated GPS systems. Now I can measure all my routes before I run or easily map out a route that’s just the distance I want.
