Chart Personal Journeys with LiteTrack
As his first contribution to the XDA community, member xdaid has created a very useful application which makes the most of your Windows Phone’s GPS capabilities.
LiteTrack allows you to record and store paths and journeys as you take them; ready for playing back when you want to take the same route again. Such a function is ideal for someone who frequently travels ‘off the map’ with regard to traditional GPS mapping applications. For example, a much-enjoyed walking route is very difficult to plan on turn-by-turn navigational software.
The application uses the OpenStreetMap repository, so that you can update and add to your library of maps without having to pay a fee. This also means that you can use the application without a data connection provided that you have already downloaded the relevant maps. Some of the information that LiteTrack is capable of recording includes your altitude, speed, heading, latitude and longitude to reassure you that you won’t get lost.
This app will work with your device provided that you it has GPS capabilities, a WVGA or VGA touchscreen, Windows Mobile 5.0 or later and .NET Compact Framework version 3.5.
You can find LiteTrack and more information in the original application thread.

The majority of us here at XDA would consider ourselves power users and Android enthusiasts. Thus, when a friend or family member has a question about which phone they should get, they usually come to us. However, this is where we all differ. While some will atomically recommend the Nexus line, others in the community will suggest an offering from Samsung or LG. When a friend or family member asks you for a phone recommendation, what do you say?
