GPSTrack allows you to use the GPS receiver in your iPhone or iPad to show your current location and create a log of your travels, showing you a map of your path, updated in real-time.

GPSTrack can track your location while in the background, so you can continue to use your iPhone for other tasks. (Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.)

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.

Nice app except overstated distance


This app has a nice interface and is a good way to keep track of one's routes. The distance reported by this app seems to overstate the distance compared to a dedicated GPS device, but the distance reported by this app is comparable to that from another iPhone app I tried. Results should be more accurate if the tracking is paused when stationary--I gained 0.15 miles while taking a 35-40 minute break without pausing the app.

Perfect walk tracker


I’ve been using this app for 3 or 4 yrs. now and find it reliable and simple to use. Easy to export a track as gpx to an app (like Footpath) that keeps beautifully mapped records of your walks. Or as kml which can be opened in GoogleEarth. I was pleased to see that it is still available in the App Store. Now I can recommend it to my daughter.

Useless on iPhone 6


I purchased on the recommendation of Tim Grey, a photographer and educator that I respect. Maybe it worked on his phone but on mine it randomly added points to my track that were thousands of feet away. Thought something might be wrong with the phone. Contacted Apple but no help there. Sent a support request to John Bafford but never received a response. Apparently John is happy to continue collecting money while not maintaining or supporting the app. Finally found PDF Maps which works great and showed there is nothing wrong with my phone.
