Trimble introduces Outdoors GPS navigator on T-Mobile G1

To allow users get maps of their locations and track routes with a GPS breadcrumb trail

By CBR Staff Writer

Trimble has launched its Outdoors application on the T-Mobile G1, an Android phone. The Outdoors application reportedly converts G1 into a GPS navigator and geotagging tool for hiking, backpacking, fishing and other outdoor activities.

The company said that, with the application, users can review and plan trips online; send route maps and waypoints wirelessly to the G1; and capture experiences with geotagged pictures, text and audio notes that can be shared online via the Trimble site, Facebook and Google Earth.

Trimble further noted that the application allows users to get maps of their locations, track routes with a GPS breadcrumb trail, and mark and edit waypoints. The application also features a digital compass, displaying the user’s coordinates, speed and heading.

Rich Rudow, managing director of Trimble Outdoors, said: We developed Trimble Outdoors for the G1 to give Android enthusiasts an easy, convenient and affordable solution for outdoor navigation.
