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.

Good app, can eat data plan

Great app. Tracks are nice and simple. Export to google earth, or *.gpx format. This is nice for later import into mapping on pc, or GE on the iPad.

Only complaint: I wish you could toggle on or off the auto streaming map image. When on 4G, map streaming can eat up valuable data plan quickly. So, turn off 4G before launching this 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.
