GPS WI-Fi, apps for Iphone

PosiMotion says it will introduce new applications and a GPS-enabled WiFi router when the iTunes AppStore opens Friday. The software titles include G-Spot, which brings GPS-like features to older iPhone and iPod Touch models, G-Park to help users remember where they parked, and G-Minds, a pubishing program for developers. The company has also announced what it calls "the world's first mobile GPS network router," the G-Fi."

Described as a "lightweight position identifying and locating application " G-Park pinpoints the exact location of a user's parking space. By pressing the "Where Did I Park?" button, users can find their vehicles in crowded shopping center parking lots. G-Park will be available at the AppStore Friday for $1.

Posimotion calls G-Spot its "premier product." Besides bringing GPS functions to older devices, G-Spot allows users to share their locations with others via e-mail, and keeps a log of recent locations. G-spot gets quite precise, recording exact latitude and longitude, heading, speed and altitude. The $2 application could prove especially useful for parents who want to keep track of their kids.

The $180 G-Fi combines a mobile Wi-Fi router with GPS to provide iPhone users with "military precision" location data. PosiMotion says the device adds GPS functionality to virtually any mobile device, including Macs, PCs and running WIndows Mobile devices. Pre-orders will be accepted on Friday, and the router is expected to ship in September.

PosiMotion says it has become the first iPhone software company to allow other developers to use its development, design and marketing resources through it's G-Minds publishing application. PosiMotion also announced that it is working on a social networking application for the iPhone called "G-Life," but has not released any details.
