Have used map my run for years with much enthusiasm but it is now driving me mad with the new format.
Is there a good, simple, alternative?
G map pedometer
You have to double click rather than the single click on MMR. It is getting bloody hard to use isn't it?
click "Start recording" first, then double click on your start point
Try this, Ive used it for ages.
Tried the route measurer on fetch? It's cheap & cheerful (ie straightforward?)
Thank you all so much for those suggestions - will try one for my run this morning.
And am glad I'm not the only one who doesn't like the new format for mapmyrun!

use this one, it even follows the profile of the road with all the bends turns etc and it's free

Sorry don't know how to do the linky thing
When you post a reply, below where it says Johnny Stanford says: there is a tool bar. To the right of the smiley face there are three chain links. Click on the three chain links an a little box appears that you put the url and link title in. Robert is your mothers brother.
Another vote for gmap-pedometer from me.
i agree, mapmyrun used to be about the running, maaaan.
i use google maps for most things. as apple says, "there's a [widget] for that". see instructions here:
I prefer the UK version of MMR, they used to have a similar name but changed it to avoid confusion.
They are http://gb.mapometer.com/en/
Simon Richards I'm not sure about 3, but they do have 1 and 2.
And of course it is free.

I use this version too. I haven't had a problem with it, although you can't add loops to a route, therefore have to start again. But I can save my routes using the free membership bit, which is useful because I use the better ones repeatedly and never remember how many miles they were.
It's pretty accurate when compared against Garmin. In fact, more so when compared against my 305, which loses GPS alot.
Mike, I am using Adidas miCoach which is a free Android App. Seems to work just fine for me, it is multi-discipline as well so you can use for Cycling and Nordic Skiing (if that's your thing) amongst others.
Ooh, I'm liking the road-following thing!
I notice also (with gmap pedometer) you can turn it off for one click, to override it (eg if you cut across country) and then turn it on again
Run Keeper is one of the best I have used - tried adidas micoach nike and mapmyrun and Run Keeper stands out. Very easy to use, includes coaching, you can amend and upload route. Share with your running buddies or street team. Definately recommend.
You can also track your progress with the routes on your smart phone, upload general exercise, manual entry or just run and see where the mood takes you. Can also be used for cycling, walking etc.
