Hi Leah, Shameless plug here. You can do all of that in one seamless experience. Use MapMyRun to plan the route http://www.mapmyrun.com/routes/create/ , sync it with your phone http://www.evernote.com/shard/s16/sh/ab28bf1e-1540-4e70-a020-ba54ff95c91e/f2954031f5878d798d4da4b7980b49ae, and see your planned route as you're running it in the MapMyRun mobile app http://www.mapmyrun.com/app/.

Agreed, while it might be nice to have a pretty looking diff, it's really a secondary artifact. The new state of the code is more important. For those times when you're interested in the change itself, and a unified diff doesn't represent it well, looking at the the before and after in another comparison tool is better. For exploring all the files touched in a Git commit, I recommend git-diffall (https://github.com/thenigan/git-diffall). If you're a Vim user, it plays well with DirDiff (http://www.vim.org/scripts/script.php?script_id=102). If you prefer Emacs, I recommend dircmp-mode (https://github.com/matthewlmcclure/dircmp-mode). If you're on Windows or a Linux desktop, Beyond Compare (http://www.scootersoftware.com/moreinfo.php) is a fantastic tool. Beyond Compare in particular lets you tell it a line on each side of the comparison that corresponds to the other side, in case you can do better than what the automatic hunking chose.
