PathAway GPS 5 - Windows Mobile
New Features

PathAway GPS 5 Is a major improvement over PathAway GPS 4. It sports a new "Finger Touch" user interface, more responsive and faster performance. Also, the dashboard is now transparent enabling you to visualize more of the map without losing the display of important trip information. With the new Trips database structure it is easy to import and export GPX files since all of the data included in the GPX file including Points, Routes, and Tracks, will be contained in the Trips definition. So you can export the Trips as well and all the necessary data will remain together. Also included is a new Elevation and Speed Profile Screen. Great for analyzing the difficulty of a trek, or reviewing performance.
