Mountain Dynamics Announces Release of SnowRanger™ for Magellan® GPS

SnowRanger ski resort trail maps now available for Magellan eXplorist™ and CrossoverGPS™ handhelds

Tucson Arizona, Feb 12th 2007 Mountain Dynamics Inc. announces the immediate availability of the Magellan-Certified version of its innovative digital ski resort trail maps for handheld GPS receivers. By adding Magellan support to its existing Garmin®-compatible series Mountain Dynamics' SnowRanger maps are now available for GPSes from the two largest vendors of outdoors-oriented receivers.

Mountain Dynamics joined Magellan's Solution Developer Kit program in 2006 and has worked closely with Magellan to bring its comprehensive database of ski resort mapping data to their MapSend® format.

"Our strategic goal is to broaden the range of hardware that our maps may be used on," said Marcus Needham, Mountain Dynamics' President and CEO. "The compact and rugged eXplorists and the big screen, on-road/off-road CrossoverGPS are fabulous handhelds to take out skiing or snowboarding."

Each digital map shows the resort's chairlifts, trails, lodges, terrain parks, roads and parking, tree cover and contours, and more, directly on the GPS screen. Most importantly the GPS shows skiers or snowboarders exactly where they are on the mountain, where they have been, and where they are heading. With ski lift tickets reaching $80 or more this season, SnowRanger helps the skier or snowboarder get the most out of each day, and can be a valuable aid to safety.

The Magellan-Certified map sets are available immediately for download from www.magellangps.com for $29.95 per set.
