5/5 stars

Love it!

:
Update - Version 5.2
Still the best, most well thought out GPS app. Uses very little power during background tracking.

Update - Version 5.0
What, more features you say? What more is there to say? Double woohoo!

Update - Version 4
Still a five star app. The interface has been improved with version 4. Also improved is the ability to cache maps for use when out of 3G/WiFi range. And speaking of maps, there are a plethora of maps available. Oh, best of all, GPS Kit now supports background tracking! Woohoo! Great job guys!

Version 3:
I have been using GPS kit since the first release and it just keeps getting better. I mainly use it for GPS tracking and geotagging photos. One of my favorite features is that the iPhone's proximity sensor can turn off the screen to save power. This allows you to carry the iPhone in a pocket or backpack while GPS Kit is running and not have to worry about battery life. I can get about four hours of tracking in normal power mode. There are additional low power modes to further extend battery life.

The maps can be used without 3G/WIFI reception if you plan ahead and cache the area you want to view offline. I love having this ability, but this is feature that needs improvement. It would be nice if GPS Kit had the option to cache all zoom levels automatically of a viewed area.

There are a lot of features that make GPS Kit a real winner. I have recommended this app to two other people who bought and use it regularly.

I give it a BIG thumbs up!!!
