    I have tried a number of the available exercise apps (My Tracks, SportyPal, Endomondo, etc.). While I like the ability to track my routes and view the stats, it seems that they make me re-record the route each time (essentially, saving it as a new route).

    Since I have a few routes that I tend to repeat regularly, do any of the apps out there allow you to record the track only once (or, map it out online), and then select to race the same route and compare your stats (i.e. - I record the route as 'Bike Ride 1' or 'Dog Walk 1' and if I want to repeat that route, I just select the route and go)?

    I've heard Cardio Trainer might be able to do this. I had it on my Eris for a while, but only used it once and found it to be rather inaccurate and full of junky bloat.

    Any apps out there that do what I want?

    I would love a program like that also. I was going to try CardioTrainer, but what is the junky bloat you mention?

    Well, it's a pretty big program for android, compared to endomondo or sportypal, and there seemed to be a lot of ads for trial versions of their other software products. And, the distances registered by the GPS don't seem very accurate (a common complaint, if you read the comments on the market). So, I removed it after about 1 week. Maybe I'll give it another shot.

    I have never tried it myself, but perhaps you can look into Softrace
