The Latest iPhone GPS Applications

March 22, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 158

iPhone GPS applications are available. Hikers, geocachers, tourists and commuters are among the many people who are using the apps on a regular basis. Some, like commuters, may use the products daily.

There are many navigational apps to choose from. They vary in terms of price, ease of use and functionality.

Some of the programs offer turn-by-turn with voice. The application is similar to onboard vehicular navigation systems that make use of your vehicle's stereo system. Only this version makes use of the speakers in your phone.

The voice option makes following the navigator's direction safer. But it's still a good idea to choose ear-buds or another hands-free option when you are driving. You can get a mount for your dashboard to make holding the iPhone unnecessary.

How and when the graphics are displayed is another variable. The simplest programs prompt you to type in a keyword or a local search to bring up the map of the surrounding area.

You can choose 2D or 3D graphics with some apps. Others offer only 2D. It generally takes longer to load 3D graphics.

For people who drive for a living and others who need to keep track of business miles, there are GPS applications that do the math for you. The phones do not have the data storage capacity to keep track of a year's worth of business miles to use for tax purposes. But the system could be linked up to an online account to give you the data storage option.

Some apps allow you to add notes or enter the purpose of the trip, as well. For regular business travelers, it is really nice to have.

The simplest of all apps are the ones that simply publish your current location through your social network. This is the kind of app that shows a person's status as "just checked in at" some business or location on Facebook, for example. It's really just a social networking tool. It's easy to use and that's why it's popular with the kids.

The iPhone GPS applications are not just for traveling by road or foot. They can also be used by pilots to share a flight log book with the world. It's basically another social networking app. Pilots don't use it as a navigational tool. But tech-savvy pilots think it is cool.

You can even get custom designed GPS applications for your iPhone based completely on your business or personal needs. A good software designer could easily do the job.
