Satsports' Satski is a state-of-the-art gadget which enables skiers to navigate the piste, and record their day on the slopes and speed levels all from their pocket.
Users can download the applications to Windows and Android mobile phones and it comes on a stand-alone GPS unit. This touch screen colour GPS system uses ‘real time' while on the piste to plot users' routes and guide skiers and boarders of all different levels around the resort through an interactive piste map.
Users can plot routes from point A to B avoiding the runs they don't like and at the same time provide animations of the route chosen such as time taken and distance.
Satski enables beginner and intermediate skiers to plan a full day out on the piste avoiding black and red runs while more experienced skiers can plot harder runs and measure their speed and terrain covered; Satski provides statistics on speed, distance covered, altitude, and ascents and descents.
Whilst tracking ‘live' statistics on the piste, the Satski receives GPS signals constantly to allow users to navigate themselves in ‘real time'.
The Satski display will show users' current location on the piste and replays previous runs or the full day skiing at a press of a button. Satski also includes useful information on local points of interest on the mountain like restaurants and lifts.
