It looks like us Mac users are finally getting a robust GPS-enabled navigation solution for our Mac’d rides! The new application is called RouteBuddy and has many of the features that you would expect from a navigation application like live tracking of GPS data, instant recognition of GPS devices, and the personalization of waypoints with notes and custom icons.
RouteBuddy also imports GoogleMaps and Yahoo Maps GeoTagged URLs as well as instantly viewing your location in Google Earth or Google Maps.
RouteBuddy was specifically built for the Mac and OS X by a team of Macheads, who were frustrated with the lack of a decent GPS solution and decided build their own.
The application is due to launch next week and you can currently check out their teaser website (which will be continually updated up until launch) to see what cool features are in store.
Update: Now Available!
MacVroom applauds the RouteBuddy team for taking the initiative to fill this much needed segment of the Mac market and can’t wait to get our hands on a copy of the application. We will have a full review as soon as the application is available.
