Verizon Wireless to offer Trimble Outdoors off-road nav
Yesterday Trimble announced the availability of its off-road navigation software, Trimble Outdoors, on select cell phones from U.S. wireless operator Verizon Wireless. Customers get trip planning software, off-road navigation and journaling tools for outdoor activities such as hiking, backpacking, fishing and hunting.

Trimble Outdoors is available on more than two dozen GPS-capable phones from Verizon Wireless, including the rugged Verizon Wireless G'zOne Type-S (Casio) and G'zOne Boulder (Casio), and Motorola Adventure V750, as well as popular phones such as the LG Decoy and Samsung SCH-u550. Verizon Wireless customers can purchase the Trimble Outdoors application directly on their phones for $5.99 for a monthly subscription or $1.99 for one-day use purchase.

Facebook App

Trimble has also recently launched a Facebook application. The application links together a user’s Facebook profile and his Trimble Outdoors account, and lets his friends know instantly when he has shared a new trip on the Trimble Outdoors web portal. The user can also look at a list of his friend's Trimble Outdoors trips by using a “Friends' trips” tab in the Trimble Outdoors Facebook application.
