    Hi all,

    Is there any application for Desire which allows me to see the altitude ? Based on GPS, of course.

    The app called tricorder shows your gps coordinates including altitude. There are others on the market.

    Google Tracks recorded my altitude last time I used it on a walk. Don't know how it does it, but it's really pretty good.

    GPS altitude is very unreliable.
