    I'm using My Tracks and CardioTrainer. Both will map your route. CardioTrainer is more fitness oriented while My Tracks is more GPS oriented but they both will record, and graph, heart rate if u have a Bluetooth heart rate monitor. My Tracks will also graph cadence if u have the right type of sensor. There are many good ones. These r just the ones I use. Sorry, I don't know anything about the one you mentioned.

    +1 for My Tracks and its free. It has an easy to use graph/map function and a voice tells you your average speed every km which is nice to know when your doing longer rides.

    I've tried my android alongside my Garmin 750 and Garmin 60CSx and the GPSers are around 6-12 feet discrepancy in plotting. My android accuracy is about 80-130 feet off.

    I am curious as to what you want to do with the phone? For example do you want to naviagte with it? Is it just for logging rides? Using it as a in the field resource source? Something else?
