I know it couldn't before but are there any updates for allowing live maps w/o a destination?
GPS? You mean Google Nav? You can use Google Maps if you want a 2D follow-me map. That's it. If you want a 3D follow-me map then look for a GPS nav app that offers it.
You can put in a dummy location on your route and then partially exit back out and have follow me 3D nav, but it's a pain in the ass. It's a really basic function and I can't believe it doesn't have it. I like to leave my nav running just to keep an idea where I am. It's especially awesome with satellite view.
Speedometer, in marketplace, offers a recording of location, speed and other data, based on GPS location. It records your movements, and puts on to a google map. You can play it back in real time, or even zip through it in fast forward mode. I use it for riding the canyons here in socal on my motorcycle. It is a super cool app!
