Has anyone used and can recommend a good walking app to go on android phone. I am looking for one that will give distance travelled and route covered.
Thanks, that's the sort of thing I am after. It will be interesting to compare where I actually walked compared to where I was supposed to be walking.It's not a dedicated walking app but I have "UK Atlas" which uses OS maps and will show a track of your walk and give distance covered.
I use map my run which does walks, runs and cycling. Uses gps and tracks where you've been, time, calories, elevations. Also recommends walks other people have done locally which is handy if visiting an area you're not familiar with.
Tried this one, works well and you can change the method of travel from walking to cycling etc. It has now replaced simply walking for this reason alone!I suggest you try the free Google MyTracks before spending any money. We use it all the time and it automatically puts copies of all our routes walked onto our Google drive.
