Nokia Sports Tracker

Been beta-testing this new Nokia Sports Tracker service for about two weeks now and only recently I’ve been able to post some updates (photos & videos) on my tracker profile.

What this basically does is track all your movements via GPS and tags them along with all the photos and videos you take throughout the day.

What I usually do is activate the LifeVine software in the Nokia phone every time I go out of the house. It will then plot every movement I make unto Google Maps and take note of all the photos and videos (tag them with the exact coordinates where I took them) I shoot a long the way.

I can then upload all the media via 3G or wait until I get back home and use my WiFi connection to do so. The Sport Tracker will show me some relevant stats about my “journeys” including distance traveled, duration, max speed, average speed, etc.

The GPS data isn’t that accurate (between 20 – 50 meters) so the trail sometimes goes into a zigzag (Happens every time I’m on a stand-still in the middle of a traffic jam; the satellite’s positioning wobbles a bit.) but if you drill down to the building level, it pretty much gives you a good idea of your travel path from the top-view.

You can share these data to the public or just friends via the Nokia Sports Website or you can grab a widget you can display on your blog (mine’s at the bottom right side).

    This is a nifty gadget to use when you are travelling a lot. Can even use this for a project like the one who made the whole world his canvas using GPS devices.

    Really cool!
