It will use the GPS inside the phone to find fuel near you, or you can plug in the town of your choice.
Pick a station and it will give you a photo, if available, and will give you turn by turn directions and a map to drive there.
And, it's FREE.

The app "iExit" is just super! I tried it on I-70 this week and it will replace the bulky "Next Exit" in our truck cab. It lets you pick your favorite stops by brand of fuel, notifies you of upcoming rest stops, tracks you in the direction you're traveling and notifies you when you're near a favorite type of store, restaurant, diesel or not, chosen by your own preferences. Best $.99 I've spent on our camper. Amazing and even recommended by Consumer Reports.

The best App I have found is Allstays Camp and RV. It gives you everything you could possibly need to know while traveling in your Airstream. Check it out! Plus it is available for iPhone and Android phones. We used it from St. Louis to New Jersey to Arkansas as a cross reference to our Rand McNally RV GPS. It gives far more info than the RM GPS. Well worth the money!

Gas Buddy- gas prices free by distance or price(in area)
Bible+1 (bible reference)
ScanLife (scanning those symbols for more info)
Bug Spray (electronic bug force field)
CLZ movies (reference to my movie collection)

Also have:

Army Survival (great guide to all things camping and outdoors)
Coleman Camp Recipes

FYI I have to admit that I have been leaning more toward using an iPad over the phone as a more recent user device. I can SEE it better.

App update

Like death and taxes, you can always count on new, improved apps. Here are some that I've found very useful:

DIGITS: calculator app that creates a "tape" on your screen

mSecure: password, data storage app that has a desktop version you can sync your iPhone version with. Not the cheapest, but extremely dependable, full-featured and easy to use.

eWeatherHD: amazing weather app with a slight learning curve

LOCATION: text or email your location on a map to a friend for meet-up, roadside assistance, etc.

ShopShop: Shopping list that lets you check off items you've bought; also allows you to change the order of items with drag-and-drop gesture. It remembers every item, so just by typing the first few letters, you can quickly choose the item to add to your current list.

CLEAR: Simple, uncluttered checklist app

FLIGHTSTATS: Easy-to-use air travel app that gives flight and airport status.

Great App Not Yet Mentioned

Maplets - This app allows you to download and store park maps normally given out at national, state, county parks, etc. Most are gps enabled so you can see where you are as you drive around the various parks. It works without internet access. You only need the internet to download maps beforehand.

Well, embarrassed to say this, but I just relented and I now have an iPhone..........I know nothing about apps. How and where do you "get" them?

Thanks so much.

Tap the "Apps" icon.

Don't feel bad. I upgraded in 11 from a Blackberry 8830. The kid at Verizon called it an antique. Had it four years. Still had the original battery in it.
