GPS is optimized to work best on the 3G/3Gs iPhone with because these devices have a built-in GPS receiver. GPS will work on the original iPhone and iPod Touch but your location, speed and directional information will be estimated and may not be as accurate due to hardware limitations. Like all navigation apps, GPS uses the built-in location services and will not work if you don't have a clear view of the sky, don't have clear coverage or are in a rural area (especially the iPod Touch which usually can only determine its location in a large city with WiFi hot spots).
