    Hi I have been trying out two different Pedometer apps on the same exact walk on two different days. Pedometer FREE GPS +By ARAWELLA CORPORATION gives me a distance 0f 2.7 miles, and MapMyHike GPS Hiking app gives me a distance of 3 miles. Whats up don't they use the same components of the iphone.
    Which one can I trust?

    Maybe one is using cell towers and one is relying solely on GPS?
    Or they're using different mapping engines?
    I don't know much about this though.
