UP, MyFitnessPal and MapMyFitness... what should sync to what?

I have been using my UP24 along with MyFitnessPal and it's working great so far -- but I wonder how I should set up MapMyFitness? I like to use MMF for walks and runs because I like to see where I went on the map, and I live in a hilly city so I like that it tracks my elevation changes. My question is whether I should sync MMF with only the UP, only MFP, or both? I want my calorie burn to be as accurate as possible as I am trying to lose weight.

I am currently using these settings: logging all exercise in UP, logging all food in MFP, negative calorie adjustments enabled, activity level sedentary, lose 1.5 per week on MFP, goal weight set at -30 lbs in UP. From what I understand this is the best way to have it set up for weight loss, and I don't want to compromise that by messing up my logging with MMF.

What do you guys do?

    Link MapMyFitness to Up, not to MFP.

    MMF will send info to Up, Up sends info to MFP. :)
