Active Fitness adds 3D maps

Both Active Fitness and Winter Sports apps for Windows 10 Mobile have been updated with 3D maps. Microsoft recently announced 3D maps availability for Universal apps at its annual //BUILD conference. This makes Active Fitness and Winter Sports by far the coolest looking tracking apps on Windows. You can also share your 3D routes and trails on social networks, such as Facebook and Twitter and add photos to existing trails. This is especially cool for activities such as hiking, skiing, snowboarding or even activities in the cities. Let’s look at some of the 3D maps in Active Fitness. Some of the coolest looking 3D trails:

Skiing in France (Courchevel and Trois Vallees)

Ushuaia – the End of the World

Ushuaia is officially the end of the world, Antarctica is just a boat ride away. After a 3 hour flight from Buenos Aires we arrive in the airport of Ushuaia. As we fly over mountains, the reach of Antarctica becomes visible:

Ushuaia sky can be very dramatic. If you have time to take a boat along Beagle Channel, it’s one of the best adventures and is well worth the time.

We used Active Fitness to track this walk from downtown to Museo Maritimo. Downtown Ushuaia is full of shops and restaurants: local crab is something really worth tasting.

If you have time to ski, Cerro Castor is a great ski resort about half an hour drive from Ushuaia. With Active Fitness we had a chance to visit it with Cerro Castor for the Interski event with the US team of Professional Ski and Snowboard instructors. Great place to ski or ride!
