With more than 300.000 downloads, NaviComputer is one of the most popular GPS maps apps for Windows Mobile.
(See our old thread in the WM forums http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=581474

Finally, NaviComputer has now been released in the Windows Phone store in an all new version for Windows Phone.

NaviComputer is a GPS offline maps and tracking app designed for hiking, biking and other outdoor activities.
It uses different variants of OpenStreetmaps optimized for hiking and biking and can be extended with custom map sources.

Bundled with the optional map downloader and file synchronization tool NaviMapper for desktop PCs, it is optimized for offline use when you are abroad or in regions without network coverage. You can download NaviMapper on the website at www.navicomputer.com

NaviComputer can track your routes in the background and save them in the common GPX file format, as well as import GPX files from everywhere on your phone.

- Topographic offline maps, easy downloadable and manageable
- Trackrecording with statistics and GPX capabilities
- Optional PC tool for downloading maps and transfering offline maps and GPX tracks from and to the phone.
- Simple and easy userinterface, adapts to your phone's design theme

First public release, more features will follow.

Please note: Even though the name may be misleading a little bit, NaviComputer is not intended to be a turn-by-turn navigation app for in-car use.

For further information, please visit our website at www.navicomputer.com
or go straight to the Windows Phone store to download and install NaviComputer for free

Hello titi66200,

I'm sure it has nothing to do with Windows 8.1 and x64 as it was tested on this operating system.

According to the exception message, I guess it either has something to do with your firewall or other security software running on your system or with some other application or service which is bound to the same socket address/port and has exclusive access to it.
Is there any webserver e.g. IIS or something like this running on your system?

For testing purpose, I suggest to disable your firewalls and other software and if there is any other application or service running that does networking/serving, try to disable this as well. (Especially IIS and any kind of webserver software)

Please let me know if it helps.

Btw: It's not really a good idea to just give the app a negative rating when you are facing such a problem. This way I have no possibility to contact and help you. I am trying to help you to get around your problems and I appreciate it if you contact me before adding negative ratings. Maybe you can fix this...

Latest update adds live tracking feature
Hello users,

The latest update of NaviComputer for Windows Phone adds an interesting feature called "live tracking".

When live tracking is activated you can share your location in real-time with your friends or family. You can share a link with other people via email or social media so these people can see your location live on a map - with any browser on any device. It can be used without registration or sign up.
This feature can be a life-saver in emergency situation when you are out on a trip alone. But it can also be helpful to meet people or simply to let others follow your exciting adventures.

Check the first post of this thread for the link to the store and the website of NaviComputer. NaviComputer is still free and with no ads.

There is blog article with some more information about the new live tracking feature at http://navicomputer.com/blog/

I would like to receive a push notification if I leave a preloaded track for more than 100 meters f.i.
