Nokia E90: Sports Tracker

by Volker Weber

I have no idea who would carry an E90 when working out, but the Nokia Sports Tracker is a great tool if you would like to create a KML Track and display it in Google Earth:

The software keeps track of "workouts" with a GPS receiver. It is supported on Nokia S60 3rd edition phones, such as N71, N73, N75, N76, N80, N80ie, N91, N92, N93, N93i, N95, E50, E60, E61, E61i, E62, E65, E70, E90, 3250, 5500 Sport, 6290, 6110 Navigator. It helps if the device has a built-in GPS receiver but you can use any Bluetooth receiver:

You can look at all kinds of statistics on the phone, but if you want to see the track on a map you have to go through Google Earth:

The track also comes in handy if you want to geocode your photos.<

Update: Henrik comments that Sports Tracker does not record date/time stamps. That is at least partially true. The KML file does not have time stamps for the coordinates. The XML track that SportsTracker exports does have time stamps but they are offsets to the track start. This file would first need to be translated into a suitable file for geotagging. I will have to look at this in the future.

Geocoding my Photos, that is one of the applications that might lure me into buying the E90.

The phone is the one device I have around constantly, so adding GPS to it is just logical. For me at last.

Well, I do know at least one person carrying an E61 with an external GPS receiver running SportsTracker when jogging...

can perfectly work with that GPS...
