I can't figure out why.
I've just got a cheap pedometer that I got free from work--it's a bit off but I really only count "steps". Mapmyrun is right on with the GPS in my vehicle.
PS I assume you set your "stride" correctly in the pedometer? That can make a hugh difference in the distance it calculates.
