Game maker MotionX has just released GPS Lite, a free iPhone3G GPS app which provides a number of features normally found on a dedicated handheld GPS device. GPS Lite has five screens: The GPS status screen provides your current position and signal status. A stopwatch screen provides stopwatch features plus speed, distance, average speed, and elevation change. The navigation screen shows a simulated compass and bearings and headings. A track screen displays your current track, but on a white background, rather than a map. A waypoints screen shows start and stop points and other user-settable waypoints. GPS Lite takes iPhone3G GPS to a new level, but does not offer turn-by-turn navigation. This "Lite" version is free, but it seems likely a paid version with even more features is on the way. GPS Lite has netted some positive user reviews already, and you can find out more about it in the App Store.
