Think of it as GPS, Google Earth and more on your Windows Mobile Pro phone (like the Touch Pro 2). Recently, Tamas Frigyes, CEO of GPS Tuner, sent us the corresponding press release for this exciting announcement. There is even a PC side application to help you manage your maps and locations. For more screenshots, graphics and the full press release be sure to click on the read more link below. I’m installing this great piece of software now so next week I can give you a full run down and review so stay tuned! GPS Tuner is one of those highly developed applications that makes the Windows Mobile platform strong.
“GPS Tuner today announced the latest generation of its off-road navigation software, developed specially
for mobile devices. GPS Tuner Atlas is a must-have for anyone who seeks a flexible off-road navigation
solution for geocaching, biking, touring, extreme sports, and hunting or as part of their dayto-

You heard right, Free as in Beer. We’ve talked about it in the past but now is as good a time as any to rehash the concept.

Vsevolod Shorin has announced that gpsVP is open sourced and is welcoming people to help develop and make it better.

For the beginner developer it could even be a learning experience just checking out the code.
Hopefully, we can get some AllShadow community members on the project to ensure compatibility.
