iPad as a navigation tool

This is an amazing App you can use whilst walking or driving. Make sure you buy 3G iPad that includes GPS. App works with Cellular Data switched on in Settings but you do not. Have to be connected to Broadband so no ISP charges (free). Just make sure you download maps you need before you leave. Again maps are free.   

It will accurately show where you are, record where you have been, record track history with speeds and elevation. Compass very good, not sure how it works but it does.
