[access-uk] Re: GPS Again!

Hi Carol,
 
Just to give you a little perspective, the tel cos charge for GPRS by the
megabyte.  I think Orange works out at about four quid a meg.  They are one
of the cheapest I believe.  Each route calculated by Wayfinder downloads a
whapping 5 kilobytes.  So it's going to take you a long time to reach that
megabyte, if all you do is Wayfinder, isn't it?
 
All the best

No, the bank can stand a little more than that, but, seriously, I just did
not know how much WAP costs were in terms of using GPS.

Hi Carol,
 
Because it uses GPRS, or your WAP service, the costs are about a penny per
route.  It is hardly going to break the bank <Smile>.

Justin, so you're saying, choose a destination and you'll find what's on the
route.  If you just want the nearest Police Station from your startingpoint
and you have no idea where it is then you won't be given one.  Still, good
information can be gained along a route and that would be very much better
than nothing at all!
 
I am wondering what sort of phone costs were incurred to use this?

Ah, what a shame you don't sell it Steve, I was hoping to look at that at
this year's sight village, lol.  Mind you, it'll be interesting to see if
anyone's show casing wayfinder.
 
anyway, to carol, yes, the idea is that wayfinder on your mobile is supposed
to tell you along you're route what you're approaching, land marks like a
police station, restaurants, clubs, names of roads etc.  I believe you can
programme in your destination in the wayfinder software and it's supposed to
guide you to the very destination.  I'm interested in this as, I think it
would be brilliant for me personally.  
 
So, that''s as much as I know.  I'm concerned on how acurate it is though
,but, that would need testing and.... erm... is that a good idea?

Steve,
 
Does this mean that you can't locate a park, restaurant, or shop in a given
area, unless you know the address of where it is?
 
If this is so then the AA maps give that kind of information already.
 
If I'm missing something here, please explain a little more.
