Hi everyone.

First of all, excuse my English, I'm Brazilian.

So, I really like to run everyday, but at the moment I have to know better about my running speed.

And, of course, I don't have money enough to spend on a Garmin speed meter (something like 200 dollars, but here it is six or seven times that price because the taxes and profit).

Is there any way to make a ordinary cellular phone (I have a Motorola A1200) working as a speed meter (tie any kind of GPS and write a software to do the job)?

I really don't know if I'm suggesting a madness, sorry if it's a non-sense.

I am sure it is possible. The only question would be if you would be able to program an application for the phone. By that I mean the development software may not be available for anyone. Most phones will accept java programs buy you would probably not have access to the GPS using java.
