is a powerful GPS navigation and track logger software aimed at fulfilling the needs of people practicing open air sports including trekking, hiking, geocaching, MTB, paragliding, hanggliding, and sailing.
Map support is now included!
Maps can be imported and calibrated or just downloaded from a list of supported Internet sites. Using your GPS coordinates, you can download map pictures, land maps or street maps!
All you need is a bluetooth GPS receiver and a Symbian OS Series 60 smartphone, e.g. Nokia 6600, Nokia 6620, Nokia 6630, Nokia 6670, Nokia 6260, Nokia 7610, Nokia 3660, Nokia 3650, Nokia N-Gage, Siemens SX1 and many more.
The GPSXC Manual is available here:
Version 1.4 is available!
New features in version 1.4:
- Trip info view! A new view has been introduced to display statistical information: max speed, average speed, trip time, moving time...
- Track profile view! Displays the track profile, including altitude, speed, time and distance, for both the active track and the reference track!
- Customizable speedometer max speed to have a more detailed speedometer depending on your activity (car, bike, trekking, sailing...)
- Current position displayed on the tracks / maps view along with a direction arrow, to let you exactly know where you are on the map
- Waypoint editor includes the ability to set a waypoint's coordinates to the current position
- Customizable default waypoint radius to avoid the need of editing the radius value in every new waypoint
This is the basic feature, including position, altitude, speed and direction provided by your GPS. Automatic reconnection is provided in case the communication with the bluetooth receiver is lost.
High contrast colors are used to improve readability in every condition. Furthermore the backlight of your phone can be kept always on, to read the display in low light conditions without the need of touching your phone. Map support
Using your current position or a waypoint, GPSXC is able to download a map from the Internet using a list of supported sites. Maps are not limited to street maps,
but can also include terrain, tracks and pictures (orthomaps) of the required area.
If you already have a detailed map with all the information required for your open air activity (e.g.: trekking or MTB tracks, flying sites, detailed terrain data, and so on), you can import it in GPSXC with very few steps.
All you have to do is to load your map bitmap (JPEG, GIF, PNG, TIFF or BMP, to name the most common formats) and calibrate two points, as shown in the previous screenshot.
Automatic recording of your track, without limitation in the number of track points. The track recording interval can be set to any value starting from 1 second. Zoom and panning features to view your track are also provided. The track can be downloaded to a PC using software like OziExplorer, CompeGPS, SeeYou or any other program compatible with the Garmin protocol
, using the infrared port of your smartphone, with no need for additional expensive cables!
Waypoints and routes
You can add, view and edit as many waypoints as you want. You can select a waypoint to know which direction you have to follow to reach it, the distance from your goal and a glide ratio indicator. Waypoints can be downloaded and uploaded from your PC, avoiding the need of entering them manually.
A route is a sequence of waypoints. When a route is selected, the waypoint view shows a yellow arrow to indicate the direction (heading) to the current waypoint and a red arrow to indicate the direction to the next waypoint.
When a position inside the waypoint's radius is reached GPSXC switches automatically to the next waypoint in the route, playing a sound to let the user know that a new destination is on screen.
Safety is a big issue in open air sports. GPSXC will allow you to send periodically or manually a SMS detailing your current position to a phone number of your choice, letting other people know your position at a given time.
GPSXC includes a useful weather map download and display function, using a GSM data or GPRS connection. The weather map download location is customizable as you need.
