Hey All!

This weekend a few friends and I are getting together to create an outdoor-oriented app at SLC's Startup Weekend event at the Gateway Mall. Part of the judging criteria is to get customer validation, and this is an experience I've wanted for a really long time.

The app is is a beautiful GPS and route saving/sharing app. It differentiates in that:

- I can follow a shared route much like the same that one races against the time-trial ghost in Mario Kart or XBox Live, giving you live feedback of how and where you are compared to your peer(s).​
- A completed route can be memorialized with the purchase of patches, badges, hat, shirt, i.e. physical merchandise of your design or a community design to commemorate your achievement or to show off the fun time you had with friends. (We hiked _____!)​
- Gear checklists are shared for routes. Seasoned adventurers have their stash of gear they rely on. You can know what they use and compare/share your preference.​
- Trophies, points, and notoriety (social clout) are awarded to users as routes are completed and shared.​

Knowing this, please answer the following survey!

Feedback on what you'd like to see in a GPS app is also appreciated! I've always been frustrated with different outdoor and running apps on smart phones.

What's on your wish list?

Oh man of I'd seen this I would've helped. Interestinglyenough I was submitting a similar idea in the Vegas Startup Weekend. How did you do?
