Free GPS app trials avaiable on App World from Trimble Outdoors



With the launch of BlackBerry App World, BlackBerry users can download a free trial of three great GPS apps from Trimble Outdoors:

AllSport GPS makes it easy to keep track of your fitness regimen. A virtual personal trainer, AllSport GPS tracks your performance on runs, hikes and bike rides, and uploads it to a personal training log online (check it out in the Health & Wellness category)

Geocaching is a high-tech treasure hunt you can do anywhere. Geocache Navigator is the first application to bring geocaching to mobile phones, making it easy and to find hidden treasures no matter where you are, without any advance planning or additional equipment (see it in the Maps & Navigation category)

The Trimble Outdoors application is ideal for planning hikes and camping trips. Complete with maps and GPS navigation, it makes sure there’s one less thing to pack for a trip (try it from the Maps & Navigation category).


3 new apps for BB-users on the move


TrimbleTrimble has announced today three new programs for GPS users on a GSM network. First up is AllSport GPS which tracks a regular exercise route and calculates how many calories you’re burning, how much time you take, and all sorts of fitness-related info. Next is Geocache Navigator, which is geared towards playing a location-based game. Geocaching is basically a GPS treasure hunt where players plant waterproof containers in isolated locations and post the coordinates in online communities. Finally, they’ve got Trimble Outdoors, which lets you plot outdoor trips as well as upload associated multimedia onto Google Earth. That’s quite the package on the whole, but it’s a bit of a let-down that this is all for GSM users only. Right now they’re all available for month-long trials and should be available for $39.99/year or $5.99/month by the end of November.
