Android 2.1+. Good performance on an SIII, rather too slow on an HTC Hero so I suspect a typical minimum requirement would be one of the 2.2/2.3 generation of phones released just after the Hero.
What about the augmented reality?
At SOTM EU 2011 and SOTM 2011 I spoke about experiments with augmented reality for walkers. and at one point I was going to add thesefeatures to OpenTrail itself. However I consider the AR very much "researchware" and not fully end-user-orientated just yet - for that reason it's been separated out into its own app, Hikar (see https://github.com/nickw1/Freemap/tree/master/java/hikar).
