    This is really cool. I think the killer feature is the Google Earth integration. :D

    Why would one use this instead of the more attractively priced MotionX GPS, which seems to offer more features for $2 less?

    I won't do a direct comparison with MotionX but a couple of points about TrailBlazer that you may not be aware of:

    - it creates a Google Earth KMZ file with both
    a) colour-coded path according to speed (or altitude), and
    b) animated path (a marker moves along path as time progresses)

    - it creates an annotated map image with (colour-coded) path and markers overlayed. You can save these to your iPhone photos for next sync to Mac/PC

    - displays recent speed/altitude plots

    - wirelessly download files to your Mac/PC using just a web browser.

    - it's really simple to use and good looking too! :)

    Cheers.
