The map used for the Map Your Route feature on here uses Google maps, so I'm not sure why you would see a difference there. As for the calories burned, are you going by what the gym machine tells you? If so, it is not unheard of for those to overestimate calories burned amounts: www.sparkpeople.com/community/ask_the_expe rts.asp?q=57 .

Has anyone else noticed how if you map something on the route map on here it is ALOT different than google maps? I noticed when I run in the gym at the same pace, I burn over 200 calories, but on here it is around 100
So I mapped my route on google & spark. Spark is saying 1.76 miles Google says 3.5 miles.
