    There are a few. Google has one for runners that maps your distance and other stats. Another app would help you with photos and waypoints...
    and know you want to their names....and I have nothing for you.

    The good news is if you search these forums there are videos. The bad news I have given you nothing to help that search.

    I like this one.
    Cyrket - RideTrac

    It doens't have the ability to load files not created by it as of yet, but the author said he will look into it.

    It will save different tracks so you can load them up later and the author does ride.

    I believe you want to use something like My Maps Editor, from google. This allows you to see and edit the maps you have on Google Maps, from your phone. So you can create the route you want on the google maps website, and then follow the route using your phone from the My Maps Editor application.

    There are a couple...one that comes to mind is called RideTrac. I can't recall the other...it was something to do with "bread crumbs". Trying googling ;)

    Ever since I got my G1, I've personally been using CardioTrainer. If I recall correctly, it's under the Lifestyle tab in the Android market and should be near the top if your searching by popularity. While it can show where your running through its GPS (which is what we expect, right?), its also got other neat features such as voice command, a statistics page (Calories lost, etc), and its got built in features for running, walking, driving (?), and more things than I'd probably ever care to do. If you want to check it out, the CardioTrainer website is here:

    About - WorkSmart CardioTrainer

    I've also tried My Tracks, and while both are pretty similar, their are a few things that make them just different...while they both upload to Google Maps, Cardio does it anonymously (But still can be shared) and its more like a training program while My Tracks is a tracking program.

    Hope this helps.
    Buffman out.

    I am basically looking for the same thing...

    Just to be clear, not JUST looking for breadcrumbs... Lots of choices for that.

    But looking for something I can run on the phone that will KEEP me on the route. Using a bluetooth headset for example.
