Favorite GPS Apps

Favorite GPS AppsIf you’re like me, you tend to get lost. A lot. (My mother used to say that I couldn’t find my way out of a paper bag.) Not surprisingly, GPS is one of my best friends. Even if you can’t afford an expensive device, there are FREE downloadable apps that can save the day if you’re directionally challenged like me. (There are obviously more GPS apps out there to choose from, but I’m choosing those that are free. Who doesn’t love free?)

AmAze is a free, turn-by-turn voice GPS for iPhone. Not only can you view the road in 2D or 3D, it offers many features of expensive GPS apps. (It will pop up a screen asking if you want to buy the full version, but there’s no need.)

This is the perfect app for those who need to track mileage for reimbursement. After creating a free account, add in your odomoter reading, and hit “stop” when you’re done. It will keep track of where you’re going, and how much time and money you’re spending.

This is a no-frills, stripped down system. If you’re not a bells and whistles kind of person, then this is the GPS for you. You can tag locations easily by clicking on “Make Current Position New WayPoint” (or enter it manually).

If you are in to geocaching, this would be the app for you! GPS-Logger lets you go back in to the system and add pictures that came off of other cameras or phones while connecting them to a specific location and date.

Not only does this app track where you are going, it also interjects to tell you when you’re near errands you need to do, like drop off dry cleaning or pick up a gallon of milk. It’s great for directions and reminding you of your to-do list!

As with any GPS system, you’ll want to make sure that they have interfaces and maps that work for you. With so many to choose from, you can most likely find one that can help get you where you need to go AND track mileage or other tasks at hand. At this rate, they may be washing our laundry by 2015.
