Map My Tracks is one of the best location based apps, it really does what it should if you are interested. It does support touchscreen phone like iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4 etc. But Android phone and Symbian S60V5 phone are not supported at the moment. For other Nokia and Samsung phones, they do have a Java version. Like I said in previous post about GPSed, Java app gives terrible experience.
I could not test their app either on my Symbian phone or Android phone which are what I currently own, so I do not know how well it works. If you have any feedback about it, contact me via the about page.
