A simple and easy to use odometer. GPS Odometer only does one thing, and does it well: measure distance travelled. Includes run in background capability. Ideal for almost anything that requires measuring outdoor distance travelled such as walking, running, driving, boating, hiking, and horseback riding. Please note that the home screen widget is for the full version only.

***** Important! *****
Common user mistakes:
- Do not try to test the app by pacing around in the same small area.
- Please note that GPS uses a lot of battery power.
- Satellite based GPS location does not work well indoors. Many apps use network based location because it does work indoors, but it is not accurate enough for use with this app. If the location icon is not solid in your status bar, that means your PHONE can't acquire a satellite GPS fix in that area.

Features:
- accurate to within 1 percent when compared to most car odometers under normal driving conditions.
- includes a timer
- includes pause / resume for each trip
- includes a lock to help prevent accidental reset/stop/start of your trip. After unlocked, it locks back in 9 seconds, or you can lock it yourself.
- includes displacement readout (straight line distance from your starting point)
- average speed readout in meters per second, feet per second, yards per second, kilometres per hour, miles per hour, nautical miles per hour
- actual speed readout (This may not be accurate at slow walking speeds)
- units include meters, kilometres, yards, feet, miles and nautical miles
- approximates distance travelled in some GPS dead spots such as driving through a tunnel by adding the as-a-bird flies distance to your trip.
- resumes tracking after restart (You must now enable this feature in settings)
- includes a custom calculator. Uses include taxi fare and energy burned while exercising

What this app does NOT do:
1) Does not record your route. Each trip has a start location, a last location, and a next-to-last location. No record of where you go is saved other than that. Only distance and time.
2) No location information ever leaves your device.
3) No maps. Only distance.

Recently changed in this version

Fixed a bug that causes the following scenario:
1) User exits the app by pressing the 'back' key and agrees to pause all active trips.
2) Upon opening the app and resuming any trip that was paused upon exit, the 'as a crow flies' distance is added to the trip.

For previous recent changes, please see the end of the description. This section has a 500 character limit.

    How do you turn it off? Does it use airtime while it constantly runs?

    Love the idea, the layout, everything. It's a great app. The developer made exactly what I am looking for... But it just isn't accurate on my device :/ so I have to go back to using run keeper aka battery hog :(
