Before starting a hike, start this app and let it
stabilize (find satellites and current location).
Then clear stats and go ...

Network reception on trails is poor, draining
battery and rendering many apps useless.
It's advisable to disable mobile network (3G/4G).
GPS works best with a clear view of horizons;
bodies, trees, and hills block signal. Carry phone
in pants pocket (not shirt) on the more open side.
Outdoors in a flat open area, most GPS units
can be accurate within 5 to 10 meters (yards).
Indoors it may be impossible to get any fix.

During GPS location updates (every N seconds)
status goes BUSY, then a beep sound indicates:
DOUBLE-beep at the start of a new lap;
HIGH/LOW beep for over/under speed threshold;
TRIPLE-beep for reaching milestones.

    Force Close on Optimus
    Wouldn't even open. Very disappointing, I was really looking forward to using this.
