    For those of you that use Cardio Trainer or Buddy Runner, where do you keep your phone when you are running?? I have Buddy Runner and love it, but I haven't found a good place to keep my phone when I am running.

    I have a made for ipod neoprene sleeve with clear plastic front that the Droid slips into. It's a bit tight but the material stretches out a little over time. It covers it pretty good top to bottom. You can even navigate the screen through the plastic.

    I think I bought it off a rack at a discount store like TJ Max, or Marshall's for about $12.00

    I've got a couple of jackets that have a zip pocket at the chest for ipod that my Moto Droid fits into. I'm not sure what I'm going to do come warm weather though. I prefer Cardio Trainer. I love that it gives you time, splits, distance and pace And even figures elevation. Plus it will work for ny bike and kayak too.

    I have used it on my arm and in the pocket of my hydrating belt. I tried cardio trainer and another app (can't remember name) and they both lost signal and both showed 2.5 miles run when I got home from an 8 mile run. I'm sticking to my garmin I guess.

    I put my Droid X into a ziplock baggie and just hold it in my hand. However, my first two attemps using CardioTrainer the app stopped responding so it only showed a small portion of my run.

    I tried again with MyTracks after the first half mile my phone shut down and restarted. I started the MyTracks recording again and finished the run without any problems from that point. I wonder if holding it in my hand while I run is causing a problem. Too much swinging?
