Gmaps Pedometer Counts For You

My husband is in love with Google Maps. I don't think he'd drive anywhere without checking the traffic and comparing routes. Me? I am more of a walker and like my own two feet to power me whenever I can. I just stumbled across a more fitness-minded use to Google Map — Gmaps Pedometer.

You can now track the mileage of your daily trek. All you have to do is drag your mouse around and map out your walk to and from work, to and from lunch, to and from the post office, etc. The Gmap Pedometer will keep track of the distance of each leg of your daily journey. Enter your weight and it estimates how many calories you burned while walking.

So go to it! Get walking! Then track it!

Am I the only dummy who's having trouble with this thing? How do you start marking your points? I've got it on my home address and when I try to click and drag, I'm dragging the whole map. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance to anyone who can help!

Very cool. I walk every day on my lunch break and now I know what the distance is that I have been walking and how many calories I am potentially burning. Thanks for the web tip!

I use this all the time. It really motivates me to go further and further without taking the subway.

I LOVE this mapping program! I used it during my trip to London to log all my walking miles. It was great to keep track of all my hard work. Now I use it all the time at home.

Google Earth has had a similar tracking tool for a while now...

I use Gmaps pedometer all the time to create new running routes and new dog-walking routes. It's a really cool program and it's pretty easy to use.

This was actually much easier for me to use because I couldn't get mapmyrun to track the distance around a park that I walk at (it's not your typical .25 miles around like a track), so this was key. Thanks, Fit!

Yeah, this isn't really a novel idea.. I've been using forever and it's awesome.

I always use gmaps pedometer over mapmyrun, runninglog, and all 3289238932892389 others of those same things. why?gmaps pedometer is simple. i don't need an account. and i can just bookmark my route! Also, the interface is a lot simpler and easier to use than, in particular, mapmyrun's (waaay too many features to be usable). I've been using this for my runs for a long time!
