GPS Viewer

*Uses location services*
Simple map viewer I wrote as a learning app for the GPS last year. Works great to get a quick map of your current location or search for an address without having to wait for the native map applcation to load! This is not intended to be a full-featured map application.

Note -- active GPS tracking really eats the battery.

- Display map of current location via GPS
- Track location and update map periodically
- Show current speed
- Search for an address and display map
- Zoom in & out
