TrailRunner for Nike-plus
Berbie Software on Friday unveiled TrailRunner 1.7, an update to its outdoor route-planning and journaling software, adding support for Nike+ online community and enhanced support for several Garmin GPS devices. Users of the Nike+iPod system or the Nike+ SportBand can now display their collected workout data within TrailRunner to match the recordings with created routes, as well as utilize performance analysis tools. TrailRunner 1.7 is donation-ware, in that the application itself is free, but tokens of appreciation are welcome.
TrailRunner now offers an improved and optimized course merge for creating a complete trail network on Garmin devices, such as the ForeRunner or Edge. Importing of TCX Workout files from the ForeRunner 50 and 405 is now available, while also displaying a better overall workout history chart and blog support in the Workout Diary.
