iPad/iPhone apps that track your daily route?

I was wondering if there are apps for the iPad/iPhone that will do a daily/weekly/monthly mileage, stop-time, route tracking?

I'm looking for something to track my daily route. Ideally it would produce a map of my daily driving. How long I'm stopped, how long I'm driving, lunch, etc.

It would be great info to have, and in the event that I forget to write down what properties I mow, I can simply pull up the day in question and see a map of my travels that day.

This would also be very valuable for snowplowing as well. Tracking time and when I service a said property.

I'm willing to spend money on this, but would want to get some feedback from those that use something like this.

Oh there are tons of them for sure. Just looking for those that have used them.

My tracks seems to be a google product. Looks great! But it looks to only be available for Android. I did download an apple friendly version, but it seems to be foreign and not the same ( though it may work ).

Does this not sound like a good idea?? I have a good reason to use it as a solo. But guys with crews, it would really be great IMO.

I use it to track where I put advertisements out. And then every 3 months we do the same route again

Wish Google and Apple would kiss and make-up!

This app seems like what I want.

I just hate to start downloading all these "imposter apps" as some seem klunky and bloated for what I want.

I would be nice if a customer calls me and says...Hey Tommy, I don't think you were here plowing on February 18th.

I could simply load up that particular day and say: "Yes Mr. Jones, I was plowing your companies parking lot from 3:10AM until 3:48AM". And the ability to do a screen shot would be amazing.

^^Google and Apple will always be Titans duking it out for power. Each have their pluses and minuses as we code Locqus for them. Apple is the pickiest of the two though. Locqus can take pictures of jobs and attach them to it while time stamping the location and time each was completed. So it could handle your plow scenario quite nicely. You can setup routes as well. It currently does not do "tracking" like you had mentioned in the earlier post. We have that on the slate for mid-end summer.
