Ratings and Reviews

I like it!


I bought this app and I like it. Did some tracking and emailed to myself for Google maps and found it to be fairly accurate. I am sure there will be future GPS apps by big names but this is the best so far. The developer's web site is another matter. There needs to be some information we can use other than a shaky video taken in a vehicle.

Too expensive for what it does


I bought this one. However the track feature is useless and getting the GPS information is too long.
DO not recommend it.
I am buying somebody else, but sorry for the money I spent on this.

Best around but maybe too expensive?


I've tried most of the gps tools - even the paid ones and this is clearly the best one available. The biggest issue is not running in the background or while locked which is a major problem considering power but is the same with all gps apps. Hope Apple frees developers because this is a real let down of the phone/touch.

The main page isn't pretty but gets the job done. The tools there replaced another app I paid 1.99 for so that's kind of a "freebie" in the price I guess.

The tracking was what I was after and it did a good job. Better by far than any of the other path tracking apps so I'm happy there. In fact it did more than I wanted. Having the path over top of the map is great.

I find when switching from path to poi view the data is slow to catch up but does. The map views are slow to load but eventually do. I'm on 3G so in a low signal environment that could be an issue. It would be nice if maps could be pre-loaded but I'm sure that will come.

Anyway. This is probably the best app yet for gps functions. All the others left me disappointed and so far so good here. The developers appear to be eager to improve the software so I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with it. I would like to see Satellite info added like a hand held gps has. I would also like to tap-zoom on the track view rather than pinch.

I say get it cuz I blew at least $10 trying a bunch of others that this one does and does very well and it replaced 3 apps I had which is great. I think they would be more successful at a $5 price point as the product stands now but I don't regret the ten bucks.
