With satellite maps, GPS, a track recorder and more, the free MotionX GPS Lite app is the app for hikers, campers, mountain bikers and all outdoor-minded people in general.

Menu items included in the MotionX GPS Lite app include a compass, your current longitude, latitude, altitude — as well as killer satellite images (I could practically see myself sitting in my kitchen).

When you are ready to head out for a hike, trail run, or cross country ski trek, pop open the track recorder. It will help you monitor time, speed, and average speed and distance. If you find a map that you will use routinely, you can save and store it for a later date. And the data from each outing can be saved, so if you wish, you can compare performances.

The also includes the “Waypoints” feature, which allows you to flag key locations, whether it be a trail head, beautiful vantage point, or water source.

In addition, the app has a feature that connects you to all your stored music, so you can turn on a tune without have to close out the app. And you can lock the screen with music playing, so you don’t accidentally bump any buttons and navigate away from the page.
