A good GPS app should not just work with a signal but should incorporate offline map usage as well. I have helped develop a few GPS apps for iPhone that cover some big trails (lycian way, camino de santiago, Cappadocia, and Camino Portuguese for example) and one of the first updates we did was add in offline map functionality and a smart compass. You can simply use the GPS in your phone but I don't recommend relying on it alone unless an experienced trekker. You may be in an area that offers poor or no signal and this drains batteries quickly.
