is there an app that can calculate your current altitude?

    Google has not released a Google Earth for Android yet. I figure they will at some point.

    Try using Instamapper. It gives your current latitude, longitude, speed, heading, altitude, accuracy, and # of satellites. I've had it installed for about a day and a half so far and it seems to work really well.

    orienteer does pretty much the same thing.

    True, I've got that installed as well. I like instamapper though because it actually tracks you and you can share your location with others either via facebook or an embedded map on a webpage.

    But for simply getting the altitude, orienteer probably is the better program. I just forgot about it :)
