X-Traverse Brings Popular Topographic Maps to Windows Mobile and Nokia/Symbian SmartPhones
TORONTO, Canada - Software manufacturer Northport Systems Inc. announced today that its popular Fugawi X-Traverse (www.X-Traverse.com) online topo map collection is now supported by MuskokaTech's PathAway GPS Software for Windows® Mobile and Nokia/Symbian operating systems. Fugawi X-Traverse provides boaters and outdoor enthusiasts access to an extensive collection of cartography for fast, high-detail chart viewing on the go. For only $10 per year, PathAway users who subscribe to X-Traverse can transfer waypoints, routes and tracks between PathAway and their X-Traverse account or other compatible devices; and upload and share user data with Facebook.
With a subscription to X-Traverse, PathAway users can access topographic maps of Canada, the United States, Sweden and Germany -- with additional maps coming soon. X-Traverse maps are downloaded through the SmartPhone's internet connection and saved locally on the phone for use when outside mobile phone service areas or without WiFi internet coverage. For added convenience, users can plot waypoints in compatible PC software such as Fugawi Global Navigator and transfer them via the X-Traverse service to their mobile phone. In addition to offering charts for PathAway and Fugawi Global Navigator, the extensive X-Traverse chart collection is also compatible with Fugawi Marine ENC and Geonav MapMapster for PC, MacENC® and GPSNavX for OS X; and the iNavX(TM) App for the Apple(TM) iPhone(TM), iPod touch(TM) and iPad(TM).
"We are very pleased to add MuskokaTech's software to our growing X-Traverse-compatible product family," says Robin Martel, President of Northport Systems. "With X-Traverse support integrated into the PathAway products, we can now offer feature-rich mapping to a larger group of mobile phone users than ever before."
Support for Fugawi X-Traverse is now included in both the Standard and Professional Editions of PathAway GPS 5 for Windows Mobile, and in the Express Edition of PathAway GPS 5 for Nokia/Symbian Smartphones. A 12-month X-Traverse data subscription is available for US $10.00.
