Trimble Launches Elite Membership: A Complete Mapping Solution for Outdoor Enthusiasts

Plan Trips Online, Store Offline Maps on iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire and Android Tablets

SUNNYVALE, Calif., Dec. 11, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Trimble (NASDAQ: TRMB) introduced today Trimble Outdoors™ Elite, a comprehensive membership program for outdoor enthusiasts. The Elite membership provides access to more than 2,500 best-in-class topo map bundles that can be stored on smartphones and tablets. In addition, Elite members can view public land boundaries in 46 states, see real-time weather and scout trips with a new online mapping tool.

"From trip planning to offline digital maps and printed maps, Trimble Outdoors Elite provides a one-stop solution for modern-day outdoor enthusiasts such as hikers, backpackers and off-roaders," said Rich Rudow, general manager of Trimble Outdoors. "The Elite program brings more powerful map content and tools directly into our mobile apps in the Apple App Store, Google Play and Amazon Appstore."

The Elite membership includes:

Offline Maps: Outdoor enthusiasts often frequent remote areas, and they need topographic maps that cover large areas stored on their device. With the new Digital Map Bundles, Elite members can download topo map bundles by state, county or park—more than 2,500 areas across the U.S. These map files are dragged-and-dropped onto a SD memory card or into an iTunes account then transferred to the phone or tablet. "With just a few clicks, Elite members can have all the topo maps for a county or national park—such as the Grand Canyon—on an iPhone, iPad, Kindle Fire or Android device," said Rudow. "They don't need a data connection to see maps. The maps are saved on the device."

Public Lands: With the patchwork of private and public lands in the U.S., it's important to know where the boundaries are and whether the land is under private or public ownership. Elite members can view public land boundaries for several land areas, including U.S. Forest Service, Bureau of Land Management, U.S. National Parks, state lands and more. Public land coverage includes all states; except AK, DE, RI and SC. These color-coded land boundaries can be viewed in Trimble Outdoors apps and at trimbleoutdoors.com.

Weather Maps: Before heading out the door, Elite members can check interactive weather maps to see if they need to pack a rain jacket, extra sunscreen, or change their itinerary. Users can zoom into the exact areas they plan to explore at TrimbleOutdoors.com and in any Trimble Outdoors app to see real-time weather overlays, including Doppler radar, satellite images, wind speed, and temperature.

Printed Maps: Search-and-rescue experts advise outdoor enthusiasts not to depend solely on electronics in the field. Now, Elite members can print trip maps on a home printer or receive 20 percent discount on any custom printed map order from MyTopo.com. 

Trip Planner: Every adventure begins with a map and planning a trip is an important step for any outdoor person. With the new Trip Planner tool, Elite members can view outdoor maps, draw routes and mark waypoints at TrimbleOutdoors.com. Trips planned online can be quickly and wirelessly transferred to any Trimble Outdoors app.

Members can access the exclusive Elite membership maps and tools in the Trimble Outdoors Navigator smartphone app (iPhone, Android) and in the Trimble Outdoors MyTopo Map tablet app (iPad, Android, Kindle Fire). In addition, Elite features are available at TrimbleOutdoors.com.

Trimble Outdoors Elite is available as a monthly ($2.99) or yearly ($29.99) subscription. For more information, visit www.trimbleoutdoors.com/elite.
