Ascent 1.3 released

Montebello Software has released Ascent 1.3, an application for Mac users designed to help cyclists, runners, and hikers train better by organizing activity data to present it in useful ways. Ascent enables users to download activity data directly from GPS into the software and immediately begin analyzing the data as it is presented in various graphical or textual formats. An "animation" feature lets users replay the activity to review performance in detail during any segment. The update supports opening any Ascent activity in Google Earth to use the "fly-by" mode, and can export activities to kml files. The software exports activity latitude/longitude values to text files, automatically checks for updates, includes a simplified drag-and-drop installer, and enhances the "summary" view. Ascent 1.3 is priced at $35 (system requirements were unavailable).
