Just wondering if anyone knows of an app in development or released that will display the GPS information (Latitude, Longitude, Height etc) from the iPhone?

Also it would be good if you could download the route to your computer as well and even maybe a compass? This could be very useful and would bring added functionality to the GPS.

Not sure, but sounds good to me. Might breach apples terms of contract though (take that comment with a grain of salt, as I am not exactly sure what their toc states...)

Just found this post on the upcoming Apps thread (Post 88).

"Just want to give a heads up on something I am starting development on.

I am beginning work on a tool that can be used by runners and bikers. It will require an iPhone 3G being that it will use GPS. It will be a drain on the battery being that it will keep the GPS connected at all times while the app is running.

The purpose of the app will be to keep track of data in your run or bike. Things like total distance, total time, average pace, lap distance and lap pace. I then hope to make the data exportable (via e-mail) in a .xls/.csv format for easy import into a training log in Numbers/Excel.

I hope to input audio alerts for user definable distances (such as 1/4mi, 1/2mi 1mi etc.) Later versions I hope to add metric measurements.

I believe this app will take me about a month, so expect to see it right around the kick for winter marathon training. Any suggestions or help is always appreciated, feel free to email me at Jeremy1026@gmail.com (Jeremy1026 at gmail dot com.) "

Looks like we could have some added features to the GPS in the coming months. Im only just starting to get my head round how important the App store is and it looks like it is only going to get better as time goes by.
