Fullpower-MotionX today announced a major update to its MotionX-GPS App for iPhone and iPod touch that adds support for skiing and snowboarding.
MotionX-GPS is now the perfect app to take to the slopes as it's been enhanced with a new ski/snowboard mode to make your mountain experience even more fun. New features let you know exactly where your friends and family are on the mountain via live position updates. This makes it easier for meeting up on the slopes and tracking each other. MotionX-GPS is also handy for tracking your vertical position and maximum speed.
"The MotionX-GPS App is my constant skiing companion," said Eva Twardokens, MotionX spokesperson, Olympian and U.S. Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame inductee. "I use MotionX-GPS on my iPhone to track my skiing speed and to share my location and photos with friends and family. To make my experience even better, the live updates feature allows me to quickly locate my friends on the slopes so we can spend more time skiing and less time waiting."
The update adds support for Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)* and ANT+ heart rate sensors, and includes Enhanced Voice Coaching with support for real-time heart rate feedback. It also features new interactive mapping that allows you to compare multiple tracks on the map at the same time, easily show or hide groups of your waypoints or tracks, and customize the look and feel with over 32 different color palettes.
