If the cabin you're planning to retreat to is off the beaten path or you're looking for a place to take your truck or bike off-roading but don't want to leave the gadgets behind in exchange for a pack of maps
Map Uncharted Territory with New iPhone App
Wednesday, 13 Oct 2010
Do you take your iPhone everywhere? If not, you just might start–thanks to the brand-new iPhone app, GPS Tuner. The GPS Tuner is an iPhone-specific app that serves as interactive map for adventurous spirits.
By going where no map has gone before, it charts territory for users to navigate beyond where the “traditional” road ends, enabling them to plan trips outside of normal charted routes. Once users choose a path, they can follow along with it on their iPhone, which will notify them if they veer off in the wrong direction. Users can also manually plan their own chosen route, regardless of how far off the beaten path that may be. It automatically and accurately plans the best off-route path in almost any given area.
