    Does the Nexus One have the capability to capture the signal from my Nike+ sensor in my shoe?

    Is there an application available or coming soon that functions as a real-time tracker of my runs (and not just an app that will download static data from my NikePlus account online?)

    I use RunKeeper.com app should be in the android market under "Runkeeper" it's free it's pretty good as long as you have a good gps signal and you can upload when you finish your run I love it it tracks your distant/time/weight/cals/ elevation maps/ and also gives you a mapquest map of what you ran....it's like they combined mapmyrun.com with this and it's AWESOME!!

    I recently splurged on the Sports Track Live app($10) and purchased the 'kind of expensive' ($99!) Zephyr HxM Bluetooth heart rate monitor for my daily mountain biking rides and I'm very very happy with it. I have it set to voice my heart rate at 30 second intervals when I desire and I could see all my stats/route on the phone as well as the STL website after uploading my rides on their site. It seems pretty accurate for a mobile phone sat/gps application but to be honest, I have no prior experience with any sort of gps tracking device or a heart rate monitor.

    As others have mentioned, there are plenty of free apps that can provide plenty of use if you don't need a fancy app that communicates with a HR monitor, etc.;)

    I second cardiotrainer - been using it for quite some time and it does a great job. I especially like how it will talk over whatever music/podcasts I have playing while jogging to tell me time/distance/calories/pace (however I have it configured).

    It has a bunch of plugins that I have not touched yet, but I may go and grab the racing extension since I have a basic run that is always the same during the week.

    Supposedly cardiotrainer will update Google Health if you want it to... But I think that isn't going to actually happen until a future release as it didn't load up my last run to Google health - or I don't know how to find it on Google Health.

    I downloaded CardioTrainer a few days ago, so far so good. It seems to be great.
