GPSiesConnect: Free App Adds GPSies Tracks to GPSLogger

Matthias let me know that he has released a free complimentary app for GPSLogger called GPSiesConnect. This new app gives you access to the popular GPSies database full of community shared GPS tracks. It even lets you upload your own track to Pretty cool for those of you who like to take your BlackBerry off the beaten path.

As a reminder GPSLogger is a free app from Matthias that lets you record your own GPS track offline and playback another users GPS track so these two apps fit hand in hand. You can read more or download GPSLogger at this link.

From the description:

  • GPSies – Tracks for Vagabonds is a great website where a very large community shares tracks for any purpose. GPSiesConnect allows you to directly access the database from your BlackBerry® device
  • You can search for tracks for your sports and leisure activities
  • Search for tracks in a specified radius to your specific country/city/zip/street

  • Search for tracks that are suitable for one or more of the following activities:
    hiking, walking, running, skating, cross skating, handcycle, cycling, racing bike, mountainbiking, motorbiking, enduro/quad, cabriolet, car, nordic Skiing, alpine skiing, randonnee skiing, snowshoeing, wintersports, riding, canoeing, sailing, boating, motorboat, climbing, flying, train, sightseeing, geocaching, miscellaneous
  • Download tracks in various formats [KML, GPX, CSV & FUWAGI] to use them instantly with other applications (like GPSLogger) on your BlackBerry®
  • The functionality of GPSiesConnect can be used by any 3’rd party GPS application since it comes with a quite easy to implement command line option interface
    Provided functionalities:

      (requires a login at – which is free – go to the registration form)

  • From GPSiesConnect you can directly load any track as navigation path into GPSLogger. But GPSiesConnect does not need GPSLogger to be installed!
