Airplane mode turns off your data connection, which means no calls, no texts, no web, no gps. It allows for emergency calls, but thats it. I have an Android phone that the service has been discontinued on. The gps works fine for speedometer apps, and I use the free version of Ulysse speedometer.

I bought the B.iCycle app this weekend and its pretty cool.
It has: MPH, Trip distance, total distance, average speed, max speed, climbed altitude and current altitude. It also emails you the data on every ride and it has a map of the route you took.

I'm going to check that out! Question, did the maps already come with the initial program and if not do they cost an additional fee?

The mapping came with the app. It was only $9.99 for the app but that's still cheaper than a bicycle speedo/odometer. It works for both running and biking.
It's cool because my son went running today because he's getting ready for x country. It showed his average speed, miles he ran, calories burned and the path he took.
