Garmin announced this morning that it is acquiring MotionBased Technologies. MotionBased is an online GPS mapping service that offers a number of unique features. I’ve actually been using MotionBased for awhile now and plan to post a review in the near future.
I suppose this move should come as no surprise following this story last week. It appears that Garmin and MotionBased have had a cozy relationship for some time now, even sharing a booth at Outdoor Retailer this year.
UPDATE: Here is the MotionBased take on it, courtesy of their weblog, MBlog.
