Best mobile iPhone GPS App for Downwind SUP

What’s the best iPhone app for downwind SUP racing? Motion X? Any recommendations on battery life? Just turn off the screen? I’ve got an iPhone 5 and need it to last 4+ hours Maui to Molokai.

What did you end up using? I often use Motion X, but only for short runs and bike rides. Thinking about recording some kitesurfing to analyze upwind performance; just raw data recorded would be a good start. I had an old Foretrex 201 that I used for kite speed runs, but it finally died during some research swims out at the Olivine Pools.

Motion-X. It was helpful to know how far I’ve traveled and for how long during the long race of Maui to Molokai.
