Guide Review - TrailRunner Inline Skating Route Planning Software

If you are a MacOSX user who takes an iPod along for your inline skating sessions, you can now use it to do more than just listen to music. TrailRunner freeware will help plan your skating route, and allow you to put it on your iPod with maps, distances, and even calculate arrival times. If you find yourself wondering how long your favorite inline skating trails are or can't decide which route to take for a social skate or mini-tour, TrailRunner can be your personal training partner. This route planning software is suitable for any long distance sport including running, biking, hiking, inline skating, skiing and more.

You can even rate your own inline skating routes, order them (like an iTunes play list) and more.

What’s New in Version 1.8v268:
  • Added an improved Route finder in collaboration with GPSies.com, so the new Route signpost in the toolbar will open a route browser with available routes nearby.
  • Added a dynamic compression to the route export, so you can now enter a maximum number of track-points for the compression result.
  • Improved map loading responsiveness.
