Homer, I think I might have been driven by the same desire - use my simple and elegant iPhone to replace a clunky Garmin eTrex Venture HC.I've tinkered with MotionX for a few years but haven't gotten it to work out of cell range. They claim it will work once you have the map data downloaded into your cache which you supposedly do by scrolling through your proposed hike. Cache space is limited though. I did all that but when I tested the system by turning off cell data, it wouldn't work for me. Google earth is supposed to work in similar fashion but I haven't been successful with it either. If you figure it out let me know.The question still remains for me; Why can't the GPS manufacturers come up a decent display and an intuitive interface?
from what I can tell the newer GPS units still have a relatively small display and a cumbersome interface, eh?
