Calorie Counter and Status Panel

I've just finished (yes it's 11.49pm) adding a status panel for WalkJogRun such that when you are viewing an existing route or creating your own, a panel appears in the bottom center of the map to allow you to see the distance, time, speed and calories burned with every click. The calories calculation is currently based on a 190 pound person running (no prizes for guessing my weight) but a future enhancement will allow registered users to log their own weight with their profile as a preference so the calories burned is more accurate for each individual. I would be interested to know if anyone has any thoughts about the new feature – feel free to leave any comments in reply to this post.
