    I like to run and there are some great stats tracking apps in the market place. I was hoping for some advice from others about the best way to carry the phone around while running.

    In your pocket. A holster might not stay on secure enough while running, and holding it in your hand is a pretty bad idea.

    If you don't have any pockets, carry some sort of backpack, or one of those girly "fanny packs". That should work just fine.

    I use a fanny pack with a concealed carry holster (CCW permit holder) when I'm out running, and the wired headset I got with the Droid for listening to it. The fanny pack doesn't interfere with the GPS any and if there's any trouble, the two things I want with me are my .380 and my Droid.

    Putting the phone in any type of bag to carry around shouldn't affect the GPS much. Going inside building have a larger affect.

    Personally, I would prefer a small backpack and a wireless Bluetooth headset.

    It's been my experience with the Droid that when I'm driving through the I-10 tunnel in Phoenix and it loses the signal (for obvious reasons, concrete and steel 8 foot thick can do that) it announces "GPS LOST". I've seen it do it in and out of car home mode.

    Yeah, I expect tunnels or big buildings (such as wal-mart, target, etc..) would also cause problems, but thats not a big deal.

    Who uses a GPS to navigate walmart? lol

    All jokes aside, usually it pre-loads enough information to get you through any "bad or low signal" areas so most of the time you won't even notice it.

    Have you seen the SIZE of some of these Super Walmarts? Go in looking for a gallon of milk and I'm lost in the shoe section. A new app is needed...
