    I need a mapping program that will allow me to plot a course and measure the total kms/miles

    I tried using my pedometer and it didnt work it said i walked 15kms in 1 hour... ummmm i highly doubt that!.. its because the terrain I was walking on was rocky and there was a lot of jostling around so I want to be able to plot my course and have an accurate measurement....

    any suggestions?

    Try runkeeper. My BFF and her BF use it for their bike rides and it seems to work really well.

    Have you tried aviation maps? I don't know if they will work for you, but many of them are topographic and are measured in km.
