02 May 2011 - Outdoor Navigation for WP7 has been updated with Dropbox

 

We have released a new update for Outdoor Navigation for WP7 with some new and exciting features.

 

Dropbox

    

    

First you should create a Dropbox account at http://www.dropbox.com site and login with your e-mail and password in Outdoor Navigation. You can use one of the four functions:

Backup
Creates a full backup from your tracks, pois, routes and settings into a backup file and uploads it to your Dropbox (into an OutdoorNavigationWP7 folder).

Restore
Restores tracks, pois, routes and settings from a backup file. Please note that current data will be replaced with the restored one.

Export
Creates KML or GPX files from your tracks, pois, routes and and uploads it to your Dropbox.

Import
Imports tracks, poi or route data from KML, GPX or LOC file. You can download Geocaching LOC files from the following site http://www.geocaching.com and then copy it into your OutdoorNavigationWP7 folder, so Outdoor Navigation can open it.

French and Spanish Language

We have translated the User Interface to French and Spanish.

Sun Azimuth on Compass

As Microsoft does not allow app developers to use the internal compass chip on Windows Phone 7, devices can not determine North when standing still. Now Outdoor Navigation helps in such situations (as a workaround) with indicating the Sun's direction. Users can align the Sun icon towards the Sun and get the right direction.

Top App
Great little App, Loads of useful features and fast on my HD7

Beautiful, well designed and fully featured. First GPS/track logger that competes (and in many cases surpasses) apps like MotionX GPS on the iPhone... Buying it

*****

This application really stands out of the average GPS tools. Perfect for runners, hikers, bicycle riders or any kind of geo-tracking usage. The visualization nicely follows the Metro experience with toughtful screens like the Trip Computer or POI management screens. Well done with 5 stars!
