Thumbs up Need GPS tracking software for Iphone

I need to replace my GPS tracking system. I was using a Motorola android phone with Bubbler GPS and SpotWalla for tracking my route.
I have now switched to an IPhone 4 (forced by the company). The IPhone is not compatible with Bubbler/SpotWalla.
For the IPhone, what GPS program and tracking software will give me (free) real-time route tracking and position posting?
The SO (Bless her heart) likes to keep track of me when I am touring.
Thanks,

Haze...I use a little program called "Life360". It's not 100%, but my SO is happy enough with it. It requires cellular data, but uses no GPS inputs (that I know of). I have an older 3GS, so it doesn't support true GPS, anyway. You can get other GPS programs (Tom Tom, etc), but I don't know of any others that will post it up someplace for your friends or family to look at.

I think the farthest behind Life360 has been for me (when out on the bike) is about 15 minutes. Which isn't too bad for free.

If your SO also has an iPhone you can use 'Find My Friends'.

I use "Garmin USA". It costs a little money but, it works great. It turns your iPhone into a Garmin Nuvi (or at least it looks the same).
