    Anyone know a good tracker for jogging/biking? I've tried Sporty pal, Cardio Tracker and Buddy Runner and they all mess up. Emailed the makers with no fix yet. Anybody got a secret one I should know about?

    Google My Tracks is the best but it still isn't great... Definitely give yourself 5 minutes to get a good GPS lock before recording a new track...

    It generally takes me about 30-60 seconds to get 6 satellites for a good lock. :D Aren't I lucky.

    30 to 60 seconds is pretty good if you ask me, I have tracker Booster that you can find on the market, it takes now around 30 - 60 sec. for me :):)
    Anyway, there is new version of SportyPal 1.7.7 and the beta for their pro version which you might like as well SportyPal Pro - Part 1

    I've been happy with RunKeeper. Just be sure to turn on gps before you run it. It doesn't always work from inside the app.
