Default GolfTraxx - Golf GPS Application for 88xx, Curve & Pearls

Please Login to Remove!

7/14 - Update

VZN users with VZ Nav CAN use GolfTraxx on the course with excellent accuracy! Send us a note if you're interested.

- - - - -

6/16/08 - Update

We now support the Pearl...

- - - - -

I just picked up a curve to test out our golf GPS application - looking for testers and early addopters.

To any/all Blackberry 8800, 8820 & Curve users - would you like to be part of a beta/demo process for a GOLF application?

Currently this is a free application and testers will be provided a one year subscription for their services. The requirements for particpation is pretty easy:

1 Own/Use a BB 88/20, or 8310/20 with GPS
2 Be a Golfer
3 Be willing to spend one hour per week with the product

This is an ideal project for an avid golfer as your experience will be highly valued. International users are also very welcome to participate.

I'm interested, but I live in a climate where I might not always get to golf every week.

Count me in on this, but I too will have to wait 2-3 months before I can get back outdoors.

Rub it in.

Would it work with a GPS Puck? If so, I'd be willing to try (in a couple months when the weather gets warmer.)

To the OP:

Can you give us some details of what the BB Golfer app will do?

Default Link for Testers - CURVE and 8800s

WOW, thanks for the interest... We got the Curve version up and running just this week - this is for unlocked BBs. Sorry, Verizon is a bit "difficult" to work out a solution. (IF anyone has a contact within the company send them my way as I would like to get a chance to present the app.)

Http://pdazip.com/golftraxx_blackberry.zip (app file)

A link to search which courses are already mapped by zip code

GolfTraxx: Request Trial Version and show courses by ZIP hosted pdazip.com [just change the last 5 chacters]

For those in snow country - if your local course is not mapped, here is a how to guide: (you can "test" it by walking/skiing/snowmobiling the site as well.)

http://pdazip.com/MappingCourses.pdf

Want to have a DETAILED map of your course (like one better than a PGA Tour Pro?) Use this link to learn how....

http://pdazip.com/MappingExtras.pdf

We are about a month (maybe less) from opening up our new site with user forums, some cool games/contests, stories and near real-time with a pretty cool moderator - ME.

Feel free to send me comments.
