I do use Strava although it sometimes gives a different reading to my Garmin 200.

My experience of my htc desire s is that I cant see the screen well enough in sunlight, or rely on there being enough battery life, to make it a viable/reliable bike computer/gps for longer rides. Also there is always the re charge issue on a tour. That's why I carry a GPS Map 60csx (garmin) there is usually a store with AA batteries somewhere out there.

I personally use Runtastic free on Wildfire S, works perfectly :) And Google maps for android if I got lost (not often, but still)

I use Veiwranger and Memory Map. I find Memory Map best for route planning, and Viewranger best for route tracking. I have just invested in the full UK 1:50000 map package for MM. I have them available on my Laptop phone and tablet, you can install them on up to 5 devices. The viewranger buddy beacon is also a useful safety feature if you are riding alone any distance as someone can track you and see where you are, useful if the worst should happen.

I use Endomondo Pro on my Wildfire. Was only a couple of pounds, though there is a free version which lacks some features. It does most stuff, speed distance etc, and it automaticly downloads the results to your own account online. From here you can edit and share via Facebook. The route is tracked using the GPS and downloads to a map. You can also track someone from the PC with a slight delay. Handy if you have a problem and need picking up. For navigation I use MM Track on which you can use the OS maps used in Memory Map rather than the less than good Google Maps which lack detail, especially off road. This app can also track your rides and you can load GPX maps to it.

Hi Marc, I use My Tracks on my Android phone - you get 3 screens during the ride - one showing your route on Google Maps, another showing your stats - distance, speed, time, elevation gradient etc and a graph with your Elevation & Speed on. these can then be saved in your Google maps & documents, or can be exported in various file formats. It's a free app, (or it was when I downloaded it, so I assume it still is), so you can try it and discard if it doesn't work for you.
