-------> Smart-phone Measurement Data Sheet! <----------
I have reduced the content of the above spreadsheets, and made a compact version for your smart-phone (go here to get an app that allows you to write in the sheets, if you don't have one. It costs a little ($15), but it is worth it!). I use mine on an Android T-Mobile phone, and it works great! I enter my calibration data, then, at the Start line, I can enter my Jones Counter clicks, so it all re-calculates. I can then jot the split readings on my note pad, or can read directly from the phone, if I use a phone mount on the bike. 5k, 10k, Half, Marathon. Excel '97-2003 sheets       Excel 2007 sheets

A good mapping tool, FREE! www.OpenOffice.org. This is a free suite of programs that are supposed to mimic Microsoft Office. For drawing maps, use Drawing. For Excel spreadsheets, use Spreadsheet. You can open the Excel spreadsheet above, if you don't have Excel.

For OpenOffice, use the template created by Mark Neal, obtainable at his site.

To place a background map on a layer that will later not be visible, go to http://wisdom-soft.com/products/screenhunter_free.htm. This is a screen-capture app that allows you to capture just what you want from the screen. I take an overview shot, then, on another layer, I capture zoomed images, and overlay them, so I can get good detail.
