GPS Stone trip tracker is a GPX file generator. Display current GPS information, speed (max and average), position, distance, elevation, and shows on the map but also record all the trip information to review it in Google Earth.
GPS Stone records and exports all your trips to your main computer for geo-tagging/photo-tagging or trip management.
Follow your trip on the map in real time, or use the detailed view with the current speed, average speed, altitude, traveled distance, position accuracy, direction, and more!
Once back home, review where you have been at a given time, and for how long. It also works for sport activities, cycling, car, trekking… of course, it can be useful for any photo tour walk.
Additionally, GPS Stone can export the trip you’ve recorded in the standard GPX format. See your trip on Google Earth, or compatible software such as Atom GPS and GeoSetter for PC or HoudaGeo for Mac.

Ratings and Reviews
On second attempt at geotagging I set the app to record as I drove along an interstate highway. About midway I stopped in a small town adjacent to the highway where I took a few photos. The recorded track just continued straight along the highway and did not show any deviation and did not capture any of the photos for geotagging. Checking the times along the recorder route there is a 40 minute lapse and it was within that lapse that I exited to the small town and shot some photos. The photos themselves contain the time stamp when they were shot. I did not touch the iphone at any time during the recording. Any ideas???
In my first attempt at geotagging I paused the recording midway for a few minutes. The recorded map on the iphone did show the entire trip - before and after the pause. However when I emailed the file to my computer the only portion of the recording was after the pause - so lost any geotagging prior to the pause.
Great for Geotagging photos, but...
The reason I give it three, and not five stars is because I have to edit the GPX files every time I want to import it with my photos. The time of the file name and the recorded points inside the files are off by seven hours. I can not figure out why this happens.
Otherwise. The app does exactly what I want.
I like the idea of this app, to record a GPX file of a trip. That file could be useful for traffic accidents or citations.
But it crashes after 5-10 miles. I'd rather it record an entire trip, say 500 miles in a day! I suspect it's a compatibility issue.
My device is iPhone 4S ios 6.0.1. Please fix, otherwise I'll be forced to write my own GPX recorder and put it on iTunes!
