Home PageGPSTrack 1.0.1
GPSTrack allows you to use the GPS receiver in your iPhone to show your current location and create a log of your travels.
With iOS 4, GPSTrack can record your location in the background, so you can continue to use your iPhone for other tasks while your location is recorded.
When recording a track, GPSTrack can show a map with your path, updated in real-time.
Saved tracks can be exported via e-mail in GPX and KML formats, useful if you want to geotag photos from a camera that doesn't have GPS support.
InstaMapper is a free real-time GPS tracking service. You can learn more
about the service by visiting these pages:
To use InstaMapper, you will need to install the GPS Tracker application
from the App Store. You will also need to create a free account.
How it works
To use InstaMapper, you create a free account. Registration takes only a
minute or two. All we ask for is a username, password, and a valid email
Next, you install a small application on your GPS-enabled phone. When
you run the application, it periodically sends your GPS coordinates to
InstaMapper servers over the cellular data network.
Login to your account from any computer and you will see the location of
your phone, as well as historical data, on an interactive map. You can
also export location data in several formats and access it
programmatically via an API.
Here I Am is a simple app for sending your location via eMail. While
open, it will continually update the available stats. Once you have
gotten the accuracy you're after, just tap the eMail button. That will
start an eMail that includes a link with your location. The link is
designed so that regular computers will show your location in Google
Maps, and iPhone / iPod Touches will show it in the Maps app.
Hotspots is a GPS diary for iPhone.
With Hotspots you can:
- Tag important locations by pressing one button
- Attach photos and notes to a tag
- Get directions to and from a tag. You can also get directions between tags
- Email tags to friends
The Core Location service the Maps application uses allows you to locate
your iPhone using a variety of techniques including Cellular and WiFi
triangulation and GPS. Navizon analyzes the location data to detect and
display which mode of locationing is being used. Your location and the
locationing type can be shared with your friends so they can also see
how accurate your location is.
Please try this lite version and buy the full version if you like it.

of interest. You can receive up to 5 alerts per months with the Free
version and an unlimited number of alerts with the Premium version.
It lets you save your current position with two taps (including starting
the application) and lets you get directions to your parking location
with just one tap! On top of that, it functions just like the regular Maps
application allowing you to browse and zoom in/out on the map.
