The map also includes the locations of special items such as smashable upgrade discount signs and new race events.
Microsoft launched Xbox SmartGlass (http://www.computerandvideogames.com/374180/xbox-smartglass-set-to-launch-on-october-26/) last week. It's a companion application that connects with Xbox 360 to allow more interactive entertainment by enabling mobile devices to potentially serve as second screens and remote controls.
