Vancouver, B.C. (PRWEB) October 21, 2009
SoundOfMotion has released VeloComputer 6 Light for GPS equipped phones from BlackBerry, LG, Nokia, Motorola, Samsung, Sony-Ericsson and other Java based devices. VeloComputer 6 Light transforms mobile phones with GPS into a cycling computer with advanced trip tracking and VeloTones for audible speed and acceleration feedback.
"Just put your phone in a pocket and listen to your speed and acceleration with customized VeloTones," said Vlad Savchenko, Founder and CEO at SoundOfMotion. "The light version appeals to general cycling enthusiasts who don't need advanced features such as cadence from the accelerometer, which is available in our Java version 6 and version 7 for Android. The light version works on most Java phones with a GPS receiver. Instead of cadence, it shows vertical climb in addition to altitude, speed, acceleration, trip time, and distance, as well as average, maximum, and differential speed and odometer."
All cycling data and GPS routes are recorded on a phone in a CSV file and used for performance analysis and trip tracking on Google Earth.
The VeloComputer also uses VeloTones for audible speed and acceleration monitoring. This feature adds an important degree of safety, allowing cyclists to keep their eyes on the road and not at the display. With VeloTones, cyclists determine their speed and acceleration level with customized sounds played on a phone through the phone's speakers or a headset.
VeloComputer 6 Light is available in 9 languages English, Dutch, Finnish, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Swedish and Portuguese on BlackBerry App World, Sony Ericsson PlayNow and other distributors for $9.95. Visit http://www.VeloComputer.com for a complete list of distributors.
