    Hi,

    Is there Android application that can be used to calculate travel time and distance?

    For example:
    From address A to address B, click calculate.

    The result would show:
    - How far the distance is in kilometers
    - How long the travel time is in hours
    - Summary of the journey

    I believe Google maps can do all of this.

    Yes, Google Maps can take your current location and give you directions and estimated drive time.

    However, and this may only be for us lowly v1.5 users, Maps doesn't have a convenient method of storing endpoint locations to be entered again later. Yes there is a dropdown cache that gives you previously entered locations based on the first few characters you enter, but I like to have a whole list of any locations I might need.

    For this I use the A2B app.
