Default New SHAPE Services' project - GPSed - is in beta

Please Login to Remove!

SHAPE Services starts beta-testing of new project - GPSed.
The project is on beta stage, so we are waiting for your feedback.

GPSed is a location-based service for trip tracking from BlackBerry devices. It works with GPS techology and brings more functionality to BlackBerry devices.

First letís define what GPS is.
GPS stands for Global Positioning System. It is based on the network of satellites that continuously transmit coded information, which makes it possible to precisely identify locations on earth by measuring distance from the satellites. You can use GPS easily and free of charge. All you need is a GPS receiver either built in your Blackberry or an external once.
8130, 8310, 8800, 8820 are equipped with built-in GPS receivers.

What advantage can you take of GPSed?
You can add more functionality to your Blackberry, e.go:
* Tracks saving: record tracks of your trips anywhere on the Earth from your BlackBerry. Your tracks will be traced on Google Maps and stored in an online archive or in your BlackBerry.
* Real-time tracking: show to your friends the instant position on a map when you are traveling
* Geotagging: Pin digital photos to a map precisely at a place they were taken. It will work both for photos captured with your Blackberry or with another digital camera.

You can find more information about GPSed at:
About - Mobile GPS Tracking Service

How to?
Step 1.
Sign up to GPSed online service to get login and password at:
Register new account - Mobile GPS Tracking Service

Step 2. Download GPSed Blackberry app.
You can download it directly to your Blackberry OTA at: - GPS tracking from your mobile
or download it to your PC and install via BlackBerry Desktop Manager.
Download link:
Download GPSed mobile application - Mobile GPS Tracking Service

NOTE: GPSed app is compatible with 4.2 OS BlackBerry devices only.

If your BlackBerry device doesn't have built-in GPS capabilities, you need to have external GPS receiver and connect it to your BlackBerry via Bluetooth.

If you have any comments, questions or wishes, please post to this thread.
