New SledGPS Maps for Garmin Increase Safety and Fun on U.S. Trails for Snowmobile Enthusiasts
Tucson Arizona, January 11 2009: Outdoor recreational map supplier U.S. Trailmaps, Inc. today announced that they have teamed up with mapping product developer Mountain Dynamics, Inc. for the creation of SledGPS snowmobile trail maps for Garmin GPS. The collaboration of the two companies results in the first detailed, nationwide, commercially-supported series of snowmobile trail maps available for Garmin outdoor and automotive GPS units.
Although the SledGPS venture is new, the companies behind them are not. U.S. Trailmaps is an industry pioneer in the creation of commercial recreational trail information for the Location Based Service industry. Likewise, Mountain Dynamics has been supplying skiing enthusiasts in North America and Europe with GPS maps of downhill skiing areas since 2005 through their popular SnowRanger™ ski resort maps. The maps are available via microSD card and are purchasable by region or a nationwide version that contains over 103,000 miles of public snowmobile trails.
The SledGPS products include rich features such as:
“This venture represents the first time that inclusive public snowmobile trails have been available for Garmin GPS navigation systems. Our goal is to provide trail users with up-to-date, relevant and accurate information so that they can safely enjoy the outdoors,” said U.S. Trailmaps vice president Eric Antonson. ”Being able to deliver our map information via the proven Mountain Dynamics platform allows us to deliver a robust application right out of the gate.”
“The snowmobile trail data that US Trailmaps has acquired is astonishingly comprehensive,” said Marcus Needham, President and CEO of Mountain Dynamics. “We knew as soon as we as saw them that publishing snowmobile maps for Garmin GPSes was a natural extension of our product line.”
SledGPS maps are currently available at www.sledgps.com for $49.99 per region or $124.99 for the entire US.
