United Kingdom: Customers can now plan routes online using road mapping, aerial photography and Ordnance Survey maps, and then share them with other users.
Satmap Systems Ltd has announced the launch of its online Route Planner and Route Share Network. The Route Planner offers customers access to over £7,500 worth of Ordnance Survey mapping. The routes can be uploaded from and downloaded to the Satmap Active 10 sports GPS. Customers can also share favourite routes with other outdoor sports enthusiasts via the fully searchable Route Share Network.
The Route Planner is based on a Microsoft Virtual Earth Platform which incorporates full global road mapping and satellite imagery. The additional map layers consist of the Ordnance Survey 1:25k Explorer and 1:50k Landranger mapping for the whole of Great Britain.
