MotionX-GPS™ Drive V 7.0: First Turn-by-Turn Solution to Support Facebook Places and Wikipedia GeoInfo

SANTA CRUZ, CA--(Marketwire - October 21, 2010) -  Fullpower-MotionX today announced MotionX-GPS™ Drive Version 7.0 for the iPhone, the first turn-by-turn navigation solution on any platform to integrate Facebook Places as well as Wikipedia GeoInfo data. 

MotionX-GPS Drive is the leading navigation application for the iPhone, with version 6.7 named Gold medalist and best driving application by Gizmodo in a recent review of turn-by-turn navigation systems for the iPhone.

Facebook Places and Wikipedia have been integrated into the MotionX-GPS Drive visual search wheel, further expanding the power of the MotionX solution.

Facebook Places: The integration of Facebook Places instantly shows you nearby check-in locations associated with your Facebook "friends." With one touch, MotionX-GPS Drive will navigate to that destination instantly. 

Wikipedia: With just a touch, users will see Wikipedia points of interest around them. This data is pulled real-time from Wikipedia articles that have been geotagged with a latitude and longitude location. From here, users can easily navigate to the specified location and/or read the related Wikipedia information on the topic. It's better than having a tour-guide with you as you travel. 

Fullpower-MotionX applications are built specifically for the iOS platform, which allows the development team to quickly take advantage of the latest features. Rapid updates and innovations are why 8 million iOS enthusiasts use MotionX applications worldwide. 

"The Fullpower team is committed to continual MotionX innovation for the iPhone and the iPad," said Philippe Kahn, CEO and founder of Fullpower-MotionX.

The advanced MotionX technology platform is at the heart of Nike's Nike+ GPS application, the leading application in the iPhone's Health and Fitness category, and is also embedded by Texas Instruments in its ultra-low power MSP430 microcontrollers.
