Because of reflection and more, GPS is only so good. It's far from perfect and you want better than that.
Some apps smooth the data but then you encounter battery time issues.
No problem Matt, it's a common complaint.

I'm looking for recommendations on a fitness app to track running, but there's one small but important feature I'm looking for.
First, I have an Android smartphone, so I'd like it to be compatible.
Second, and most importantly, I'd like the recorded routes, as in the route saved after you just ran to be editable.
On any app I've used, after I run I look at the map and my route clearly shows me running over houses, in the middle of the street, and even walking on water. I know the GPS is at fault, which is fine, but I want to be able to correct the route after the fact so I can get a more accurate idea of my pace and lap times.
Any recommendations of apps with this specific feature would be appreciate!
Thank you for the feedback so far.
I do understand GPS is imperfect, I'm not asking for it to be.
I'm asking to be able to correct the imperfections on the map of my route after the fact.
As stated: " I want to be able to correct the route after the fact so I can get a more accurate idea of my pace and lap times." and "I'd like the recorded routes, as in the route saved after you just ran to be editable."
The idea is, I know I was running on a sidewalk, not through someone's living room, so after running I want to review the route on a map, click and drag the route to the correct position, on the map.
It should be simple to recalculate the pace and distance in an app after the route has been corrected.
Doesn't seem over complicated programmatically.
Has anyone used an app that has this feature?
Thanks for the tips, I think I've tried map my run, but don't think it had the feature I'm looking for.
Does anyone have a better suggestion of what forum to post this question in?
I put it in this Android forum because I didn't know where else to put it.
Seems like there should be a general "Smartphone App" forum or such, but I did not see one.
Anyway, thank you for the ideas.
""Unfortunately, a lot of the coordinates that we received over the night were all over the place within a mile circumference," Lt. Jim Goss of the state's Fish and Game Department told WMUR-TV." (from article.)
I have a picture from the Vancouver Airport and the location bounces around a lot in the taxi, bus and pickup areas. To the point it's only good for about a few block (1 kilometer?) area. Yes, most of the time it's better but due to so many reasons it's something you know not to risk your life on.
I think this is what I was looking for:
Will try it out.
Any suggestions of other apps with this feature?
