Rimrocked tracking device in the race

Social networking site Rimrocked, a new undertaking by Ottawa-based wireless GPS systems maker Guardian Mobility, is providing its GPS tracking device to the famed Cain’s Quest snowmobile race, being held from March 9-14 in Labrador. The company says its Tracer 3P will be used to track the participants over some 1,200 miles in “the toughest and rimrocked.JPGlongest snowmobile endurance race in North America.” All of Cain’s Quest’s 30 racers will be outfitted with the device, which will feed race information via satellite to rimrocked.com where the racers’ progress can be followed by site visitors. “This event really illustrates the value and power of our technology,” says Amit Nandi, co-founder and GM of Rimrocked. “The race takes participants through some of the most remote wilderness areas of Canada and yet with Rimrocked and the Internet, fans can follow the teams every kilometer of the way.” Rimrocked is used by travelers to post photos, video and descriptions of their personal journeys. Travelers can also use Rimrocked’s Tracer 3P unit to post map points of their travels on the site in near real time.
