    Hi all -- I'd like to call your attention to a new Free Apple iPhone application called MotionX-GPS Lite. This application embeds the functionality of an advanced handheld GPS unit into a simple and intuitive iPhone application. It allows users to track outdoor activities such as hiking, running, biking, or driving using the GPS sensor built-into the iPhone 3G. And, best of all it is free via the Apple App Store.

    A comprehensive video review of the application is available at

    Fullpowers MotionX-GPS Lite is an advanced navigation application for the Apple iPhone that is easy to use. The most accurate and reliable GPS solution for the iPhone, MotionX-GPS Lite is available for free through the Apple App Store.

    MotionX-GPS Lite uses the Fullpower MotionX sensing platform to "normalize" raw GPS samples to provide more accurate, reliable information to the user. The application contains five components:

    Stopwatch track elapsed time, speed, distance traveled, and average pace.
