Subject: Toozla has created the first mobile GPS guide to Tverskaya Street in Moscow
Security: Public

старая Тверская
There was a time when Tverskaya looked like this and the biggest innovation in the street was a horse cart)))))

Hello, friends! Today we want to tell you about Toozla improvement, which is very important for us! As you know, we strive to develop Toozla as a product that fully meets the needs of modern man in mobile guides. And it's not only about tech development, but it's also about the information coverage of Toozla. We have several sources of information: some global sources, such as: Wikipedia, Wikimapia and others, and some professional guides in different cities of Russia, Europe and the USA.

And some time ago the following idea began to pursue us relentlessly: our company is originally from Moscow, which means, that we have to maintain our reputation here more, than anywhere (just some kind of patriotism:)) in order to take the place of the primary main mobile guide in the minds of our Moscow users. We have analyzed the issue of information coverage of Moscow and the following problem caught our eye: Tverskaya, one of the central Moscow streets, strongly suffers from a lack of content.

Moreover, there is a lack not only of professional guides, it’s also difficult to find  information about  buildings and monuments of Tverskaya Street in the Internet, and the content, that you can dig up, would not be better found at all). This was the first and  the most important observation.

The second thought that came in upon our mind was the following: Toozla has a number of professional guides in Moscow for the central part of the city, namely: the Boulevard Ring, the Kuznetsky bridge and the Kremlin, so we have three routes which are not connected to each other, but they are located close. So, as you see, the universe was almost shouting about the need of creating our own guide for Tverskaya)).

And this autumn, we have finally made ​​this important step: we have created the first GPS mobile guide from Belorussky Railway Station Square to the Red Square.
Our new guide has a total time of about an hour. It includes stories about all key sites of the street, such as: hotel "National", the Central Telegraph Office, the State Central Museum of Contemporary History of Russia and many others. From October 1, Toozla users received an opportunity to try our free guide for the main Moscow street. We are satisfied with executed work and we hope that wonderful, proud and monumental buildings of Tverskaya Street won't remain faceless  for numerous passers-by any more. We also hope, that now any pupil will be able to show where Lenin, Dzerzhinsky and Trotsky were living after the Revolution, where previously situated Noble University board etc.

This adding also made it possible for our Russian-speaking users to plan a variety of walks in the center of Moscow, because this guide has connected our routes for the Boulevard Ring with our routes for Kremlin, where we have already 3 professional guides. Now you are able to walk for hours, listening to the city, without any brakes. For example, you can walk from The Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, after that you can turn right on Pushkin Square and go to the Kremlin. And do not forget about our guide "The history of Moscow lanes". It will tell you about the buildings inside the Garden Ring in constructivism and baroque styles.
So, taking into account all the above named guides, we can easily say that the central part of the city is covered by our guides fully, and it is time now to run Toozla and to go for a walk, discovering the capital again, cause each stone in the city has a story to tell!

Dear Friends! We are finally pleased to share news with you about a new version of Toozla for iOS! On January 25, 2012 it became available for free in AppStore.

First of all, what is Toozla?
Toozla is a mobile service that combines a global positioning system with audio tours and stories, user content, and local information, it is a mobile guide, which follows you wherever you go! And it also allows you to record your own voice messages about all around for our users can get non-oficial points of view about those places, where they are now.

So, application for iPhone was released long ago, and time for a new version has come! For example, in previous version there was no map.
Toozla for Samsung bada, Nokia Symbian and MeeGo has received a map long time, so it’s necessity has been confirmed in practice. The application for iOS now uses Google map.

We also wanted Toozla for iPhone to be not only functional but beautiful either, so we have planned redesign for this version of the application. After all, handsome phone deserves truly beautiful apps:)

As a result, we didn't make ​​changes, we've done completely redesign.

Here, check it by yourselves:


           used to be                                                      now :)

Current update is the most significant over the past two years. The application received: a fundamentally new design, modification of algorithms of work with content, more convenient access to stories and a map for navigation in an unfamiliar city. The map is not only convenient to walk with around the city, it also allows users to see the location of important objects and choose the direction of movement toward the highest concentration of audio guides. It is worth recalling that the system contains over 2 million audio tracks in 16 languages.

Now we'll be pleased to receive any feedback from your useage of our new app for we can make it even better! :)

Apparently Garmin has purchased Navigon.

Navigon and its assets will become a subsidiary of Garmin.

Navigon has some highly rated apps for iOS devices (iPhone/iPad). Garmin was late to enter that game, and the StreetPilot app they have doesn't keep the maps local.

It'll be interesting to see what happens with this, whether Navigon will stay a subsidiary and what happens to the various software products.

 Garmin's Blog Entry here.

GPSTrackLog's entry here.

It's got a big screen: 4 inches compared with the Oregon's 3".
It's got a 5 megapixel camera, compared with the Oregon's 3.2 MP. (Note that the iPhone 4 has a 5 MP camera.)
It has 3.5G of internal flash memory and accepts microSD cards.
It can share data wirelessly with other compatible units (see my previous post, here).
it comes with a lithium ion battery but it can also use three (3) AA batteries (up from two in the Oregon).

It's WAAS enabled and handles paperless geocaching and is IPX7 water resistant and all the usual stuff: 3-axis compass and barometer.

It can give spoken driving directions when combined with the proper mount, and the display can be vertical or horizontal. This horizontal feature is new.

The MSRP for the 650t is $700. There are lesser models as well.

Here's the whole line:

Product differences and links
Garmin Montana 600 – Base model, $549.99 MSRP (Amazon)
Garmin Montana 650 – Adds a 5MP camera, $629.99 MSRP (Amazon)
Garmin Montana 650t – Adds a 5MP camera and preloaded 100K scale topos, $699.99 MSRP (Amazon)

I know it's not possible NOW.

But there's a device, the Fisica Fitness Sensor Key, that will add ANT+ capabilities to the iPhone.

Here's the link to it: http://www.wahoofitness.com/Fisica/Wahoo-Fitness-Fisica-Fitness-Sensor-Key.asp

It would be SO cool if the geocaching.app from Groundspeak/Geocaching.com could use that key and send and receive geocaches from capable Garmin devices, like the Oregon and Colorado series handheld GPS devices.

Subject: Garmin Oregon 550 Map Update Problems EVERY TIME.
Security: Public
Tags:5x0, garmin, maps, mapsource, oregon, problem
Every time I go to update my Garmin Oregon 550's maps, I have to struggle.
Garmin designed the thing to handle a microSD card. Why do map updates not just go where the old maps are?

Update: OK, if I go into BaseCamp and select the expansion card, then go to utilities and Install Maps on Selected Device, then it apparently passes a parameter to MapInstall to put the maps in the right place.

Maybe this entry will help me next time.

(Probably not.)
