NEW!!! Another Great FREE Nav App From Google! (My Tracks)

 

Just released 5/25/11: My Tracks allows you to record and share your GPS tracks, including statistics.

Use My Tracks while you run, bike, hike, or do anything else outdoors, and it will use the GPS sensor in your phone to record the path you took. It will also gather useful statistics such as time, speed, distance, and elevation. You can review all of this data live, or you can save it for use later. While you're out, you can mark relevant waypoints, and can ask to hear automatic voice announcements about your progress.

Get it for FREE here: https://market.android.com/details?id=com.google.android.map...

Other Benefits

You can also be sure your location, and what you are doing will be forwarded to Facebook and then to businesses, spammers and other undesirables that want to reach you for sales or other reasons.

Care to provide any proof to back up this spurious claim--or are you yet another smartphone hater engaging in scare tactics?

Why would businesses want to know what trail you run/hike on, and, where is your evidence that people's personal information from this app are being sold to spammers???

Will the fear-mongering never end.......?

Yes, that day AFTER shady practices by politicians and big business ends.

So, I guess that really means never.

They can't forward it to

They can't forward it to Facebook if you don't have an account and, if you must join, then you can do what I did a while back - set up an account with absolutely no relation to your real life. Same reason I have a dozen or so throwaway webmail accounts.
