App Store Description

Roadbook is a simple and efficient app to navigate and move precisely to pre-set GPS points (waypoints). Follow the guide and enjoy the ride!

Designed for fans of outdoor activities such as:
Walking, road and mountain biking, geocaching, motorcycling, all-road, friends trips and more, this all around the world!

Roadbook is a complete navigation system for iPhone, iPod-Touch* and iPad* which combines the features of a roadbook paper to the power of mobile technology devices from Apple. Enjoy hundreds of electronic roadbooks available on the internet to think outside the box, alone or with friends! Embed offline maps in case you can't reach any network.
*: Warning, on iPod Touch and iPad Wifi, you'll need an external GPS accessory.

Continued use of GPS running in the background can dramatically decrease battery life.
