Free GPS Tracking Apps for the iPhone
- AmAze GPS
AmAze GPS is a free iPhone app that gives you turn-by-turn voice directions, also viewable in 2D or 3D, as you like it. The voice is quite clear and the graphics are not too bad at all. All-in-all, this one, though free, works just about as nicely as a paid app.
There is only one downside here. AmAze regularly pops up a new window, giving you the option of shifting to the paid version. But hey, this is not really such a problem, is it?

This one is great for geo-caching. Not only does it take great pictures, but you also can go back and add pictures to it taken from cameras or other phones. That is truly the best part of this app.
Once you add all your pictures, you can then proceed to tag them to a specific date, location, time and so on.
Considering this is a free app, it definitely gives you more than you can ever imagine in a GPS tracking app.

- GPS Tracker
GPS Tracker from InstaMapper is nice enough, though it is slightly tricky for some. You will first have to apply for a free code and then only proceed to use it. Apart from that, there is no hitch whatsoever with using this iPhone GPS tracking app.
One has to admit that InstaMapper’s iPhone interface is not really all that impressive, but it tracks you pretty well. It is especially helpful if you are a traveller, hiker or avid geo-cacher. This app updates info every few seconds, thus ensuring that you are always on the radar for others to access you!
