Apple's iPhone comes with an application pre-installed called Maps. This application turns your iPhone into a GPS and allows you to get turn-by-turn directions to any destination. The iPhone uses cell towers to triangulate your current position, at which point it uses Google Maps to get you directions. If you've got predefined map points that you can't seem to remove from the application, get rid of them with just a few button taps.
