Google intro’s My Tracks, a GPS-tracking training app for Android

Google has just announced My Tracks, an Android application that is designed to record the routes of your outdoor activities. Thanks to the built-in GPS functionality on the G1, users will be able to track their routes. The My Tracks app will allow users to see their course on a map and also receive stats that include elevation, total time, moving time, distance and average speed.

Additionally, the information you capture using My Tracks can easily be shared with others using Google Maps, and also archived using Google Docs.

Best of all, My Tracks is currently available for download from the Android Market. Just install the app and you are ready to begin. This is one I am going to have to check out myself. Overall, this should work well with any outdoor activity (assuming you have a signal) but personally I am looking to be able to track my running and bicycling progress in one location using one device.
