So glad to see GPS Kit is back.


This was my GoTo app for GPS tracking for years and I am glad to see that it is back Again! Highly recommend this app to anyone looking for a versatile GPS tracker that also offers great options for exporting. Just hope that an update for Track Editor is in the works as that is an essential tool for completing the GPS “Kit”

Love it!


Glad this app has been updated. Have used it for Hunting for years. Used other apps but always fall back to this one!

Best recreational GPS tracking App available


First, take time to read the entire App description and visit the website for all the features so there's no confusion on how to use this App and what it's capable of.

Now, for a recreational iPhone GPS tracking App, this is well worth the $10, if not just for the Google Terrain Maps alone! Plan a hike, run, biking trek, or anything outdoors.

* If you think you might not get a signal, you'll need to cache the road, topo, or satellite maps beforehand and then you can VIEW THE MAPS WITHOUT A SIGNAL. This can be cumbersome if detailed maps are needed, but it's still the best/fastest out there by far.

- It has good satellite detection - NO WIFI or 3G NEEDED; only for caching maps - and any accuracy issues are due to the iPhone itself. No one should rely on any phone for pinpoint accuracy or survival situations.

- The proximity sensor - turns screen off when earpiece is covered, ie: in your pocket/backpack - and Low Power Mode are great options for saving battery life.

- With a built in User Guide and Overview video, the App explains everything without closing.

Hopefully a more open GPX import feature will be available soon as you can only share with other GPS Kit users for now.

GPS Kit is still in the works. I contacted the developers who were quick, informative and responsive to ideas I had. They assured me that all the updates they're working on are going to make this App even better. I can't wait!
