Trimble and Verizon Wireless announced that AllSport GPS, Geocache Navigator and Trimble Outdoors apps are now available on select Verizon Wireless feature phones, including Samsung Alias 2, Samsung Convoy and Nokia 7705 Twist.

Perfect for a variety of outdoor and fitness enthusiasts, these apps use the phone's built-in GPS to provide detailed stats, maps, and navigation essential for a variety of outdoor activities. The apps greatly enhance running, cycling, walking, backpacking and geocaching—a fast-growing outdoor sport, which combines treasure-hunting with high-tech navigation.

"Our apps continue to be one of the most widely available apps for enhancing outdoor and fitness activities. Now more Verizon Wireless customers can track their fitness goals and enjoy the outdoors by turning their phones into GPS devices," said Rich Rudow, general manager for Trimble Outdoors. "Each app provides helpful map and location-based tools specifically designed for niche markets. Hikers can navigate through remote areas with the Trimble Outdoors app, while AllSport GPS allows fitness fans to collect and analyze their daily workouts."

About the Apps

AllSport GPS: The app lets people track workouts, including runs, bike rides, walks, and more from their mobile phone. It collects more than 20 heart-pounding stats, including calories burned, miles, and speed. AllSport GPS subscribers can analyze results, store workouts, and share training sessions with friends on AllSportGPS.com and Facebook. AllSport GPS is available on select BlackBerry® smartphones, Android™ devices and feature phones.

Geocache Navigator: The app allows Verizon Wireless customers to instantly get access to 1.2 million treasures (called geocaches) hidden around the world. There is no need for pre-planning or printing maps ahead of time. Find geocaches in local parks, neighborhoods, or at far away locations. See caches on a map, read clues, and report finds from a mobile phone to geocaching.com. Geocaching is a great outdoor game for kids and adults, and it adds extra fun to road trips and family vacations. Geocache Navigator is available on select BlackBerry smartphones and feature phones.

Trimble Outdoors: The app turns Verizon Wireless devices into an outdoor navigator for hikers, backpackers, and off-roaders. Verizon Wireless customers can track routes on various maps, while collecting waypoints, photos, and audio clips. Use the digital compass and the phone's built-in GPS to stay on track. The Trimble Outdoors app is available on select BlackBerry smartphones, Android devices and feature phones.

Customers can purchase apps depending on compatible phone in Verizon Wireless' online Media Store (www.verizonwireless.com/mp3), Media Center/Get It Now®, V CAST Apps or Android Market™. V CAST Apps, available on select BlackBerry and Android smartphones, give customers an ever-expanding selection of games, productivity tools, entertainment and news apps.
