I have been walking/running one specific route and I can't figure out how long the actual distance is. If I use my ipod nike kit it says I'm going about 1.65 miles, google pedometer about 2.2 miles and if I drive the route my van says 3 miles even. Which do I believe? TIA!
I would use the distance measured by your car...The odometer actually measures the distance that the car is going based on tire rotations, rather than trying to piece it all together using, often wonky, satellite data (which sometimes thinks I am in a different state or off-road when I am not). That said, I guess that I would also use my internal guage given my speed and time walking, given the big difference in readings.
