What is the Trip Cloud?

As an outdoor adventurer, there are countless tools at your disposal. Maps, GPS units, compasses, trip software and websites all have their value, but the coordination between several devices leaves a lot of room for both inconvenience and error.

The new Trimble Trip Cloud, used in conjunction with the Trimble Outdoors suite of apps, eliminates that hassle by automatically and wirelessly syncing your entire outdoor trip experience, allowing you to explore like never before.

Begin by planning your trip either on TrimbleOutdoors.com or on your iPad with the Trimble Outdoors MyTopo Maps app. You can choose the map types, mark and name your waypoints and save the trip to your Trimble Outdoors account.

When you are ready to hit the trail, simply launch your Trimble Outdoors Navigator app on your iPhone or Android and your trips will automatically load into your phone.  Use your pre-planned trip as guide out in the field. In addition, you can chart your progress on several map types, track key statistics, and take geo-tagged photos and videos.

Once you’ve concluded your trip, just save it and when you get back to a place with a data connection the trip will automatically sync with the Trimble Trip Cloud, allowing you to view, edit, and share the trip from your computer, iPad or mobile device.

Pretty awesome stuff.
