Northport Systems announced today its new topographical map application for the Apple iPhone, Fugawi iMap. Ideal for outdoor activities, Fugawi iMap allows iPhone users to seamlessly download and access raster topographical maps of the United States and Canada. The full-featured Fugawi iMap App provides an intuitive user-interface for marking waypoints and extensive mapping data for navigation and positional location information throughout the US and Canada.
The Fugawi iMap App displays a user?s real-time location in latitude and longitude or Universal Transverse Mercator (UTM) with an easily visible position marker. An active map seamlessly pans as the user moves, features a zoom in and out function, and includes detail such as scale, elevation, contours, water bodies, major roads, railways and bridges, to name a few. The perfect accompaniment for hiking, fishing, cycling, geocaching or any outdoor or off-road adventure, the iMap App offers the easiest waypoint editor available ? users simply tap the screen to drop a waypoint and drag the marker to move it. Plotted points include name, icon, exact coordinates and text descriptions that can be quickly edited on the iPhone. Fugawi iMap maps are downloaded through the iPhone?s internet connection (Edge, 3G or WiFi) and saved locally on the phone for use even when outside of cell phone or WiFi internet coverage. For the ultimate in versatility, the iMap App comes with a free Fugawi X-Traverse account that allows users to save, retrieve and transfer waypoints as GPX files from Fugawi navigation software for PC, MacENC for Apple OS X and Google Earth to the iPhone, and vice versa.
Pricing and Availability: Fugawi iMap is available for purchase online from the iTunes Store for US $4.99, and includes a free Fugawi X-Traverse account for use with Fugawi iMap. Purchases of Fugawi Global Navigator and Fugawi Marine ENC PC software now include a free subscription to topographical maps of Canada or the United States allowing iMap users to transfer waypoints between a desktop and iPhone using the same maps.
