GPS Race with your iPhone

So cool, we wish we were in Ottawa.

GPS Race

Join the GPS Race in Ottawa. It was inspired by the Amazing Race, geo caching and a good old fashion treasure hunt. Play with your friends or against others as you race to make the best time. But you can’t play unless you download a special free app.

The app maps your destinations with red pinpoints and tracks your progress with a blue pinpoint. Using landmarks (statues, fountains, street signs, historical figures), general knowledge and your iPhone, you’ll go to several GPS pinpoints (in a 2 mile radius) where you’ll need to answer multiple choice questions (provided in the app) about your surroundings. The GPS Race can last 30 minutes to 1 hour – it all depends on just how fast and how smart you are.

For more information, see GPS Race.
