    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.

    1-tap 3D Google Nav "follow me" would be nice.

    Start the Car Home app and choose Navigate (if you want to enter a destination) or View Map (if you just want to see your location on the map and have it follow you).

    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.

    SoCal
    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!

    Google Maps -> My Location.

    Ever notice the "beta"? There are quite a few features that many consider basic that are missing. ;)
