Offroad GPS App

Hey guys in this day and age it can't be too crazy to assume somebody has to have invented and app for Iphone/Ipad that allows it to be used as an offroad GPS. I'm not saying upload race maps (that would be cool) but maybe just track my speed and trails I took to find my way back to camp in middle of the night. I'm sure somebody has this

Post up what you have! Free is better!

Indeed it is something I can build, but I am almost positive I have seen an app that already does this. A plus about GPS is it doesn't require any cell connectivity so it should work regardless of where you're at. I'm sure someone knows of an app. My friend I think showed me one, I'll text him and ask

MotionX GPS is one I like .. its not free, but the only cheap option for good offline maps (able to read maps with no cell signal, just GPS)

I use it Ocotillo, and for the whole Spring trip through Mojave.
It works wonderfully on just GPS, but be careful as it will drain the battery with constant use.

I use GPS Kit on my iphone to:
- Upload race files
- Upload trails and waypoint I create on Google Earth
- Track myself off roading
- Everything that my Lowrance does and more
- Use without any cell phone reception, only GPS reception

Only cost me $10 from App Store and I havent touched my Lowrance since
