This is not freeware but rather "Donation-ware". Well worth donating $10 bucks or so. This program is awesome. It even has a compass feature that brings up a compass to show the direction your are heading. This program is right up there with BBGPSGolf.

Core Features of GPSLogger
•Record your movement over time - the following values will be stored:
◦longitude / latitude
◦accuracy for longitude & latitude values
◦# of satellites
◦current altitude (in WGS84)
◦current course/heading
◦current speed
◦name of location (if specified)
•Display of the current data in various views:
◦Path View: Displays the traveled path in a x/y coordinate system (2D-View)¹
◦Elevation View: Displays the change of altitude over time¹
◦Speed View: Displays the change of speed over time¹
◦GPS View: Displays longitude, latitude, heading and speed in a large font (e.g. for your own navigation)
◦Timing View: Displays elapsed time, current speed and Ų speed in a large font (e.g. for runners and cyclists)¹
◦Compass View: Displays the current heading in a nice compass view² ³ ⁶
◦Direction View: Shows an arrow/line that points into the direction of stored location (according to your current heading)³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶
•"Guide me Home"-Function for people who easily loose orientation like myself ;-) (see 'Direction View')
To reach the destination you have stored, travel in the direction of the arrow on the device. If the arrow is pointing up, you are traveling in the correct direction to reach your selected destination. If the arrow is pointing down, you are traveling away from the selected destination. This makes GPSLogger also suitable for Geocaching!³ ⁴ ⁵ ⁶
•Zoom IN & Zoom OUT for path, elevation and speed views
•"Distance Alerts/Signal" - the device can peep & vibrate after a user-specified distance (in meters or feet) was traveled (especially useful for runners & bikers)
•Night Mode in 4 different colors (yellow, blue, red and green)
•Save current location to use it later with the "Guide me..."-Function
•Store current location on the Clipboard (e.g. to paste it into a SMS or eMail)
•Load and display a previously recorded path
•Summarize information about a previously recorded path
•Export recorded paths into GPX and KML (GoogleEarth) formats (and send it via email if you wish)
•Import a path in GPX or KML format (e.g. that are recorded with other applications that support GPX-Export⁷
