|PathAway adds direct support for online maps and data exchange via. http://X-Traverse.com
X-Traverse is a web service which lets you save, retrieve, and move data across PathAway or other mobile or desktop applications. Online Maps and Charts are also available for use via PathAway WebMaps.
Easy to use - Simple, intuitive interface
Cost effective - Starts at just $10 per year, see pricing
Safe and secure - Uses SSL encryption for all data transfer.
Because its web based, you donít need to be cabled between one device and another. For example, you have some data on your desktop PC which you wish to transfer to PathAway or other mobile device Ė simply upload the data to your X-Traverse account, then download to PathAway through the internet.
For geographic data such as GPS waypoints, routes and tracks in KML/KMZ or GPX format, X-Traverse lets you view your trips on an online map, or transfer GPX files easily to your favourite Geocaching website. View your KML/KMZ trips in Google Earth directly from X-Traverse.
Once signed up to an X-Traverse data account at http://www.X-Traverse.com, a wide variety of online maps and charts are also available for subscription. Maps and charts are downloaded directly to your software from the internet. No CD's or DVD's to ship or install. Click here to purchase maps or charts.
