[access-uk] Re: Wayfinder perhaps?

MessageDamon, that's exactly how it works, you are right. For example, I go out 
in the car most days, and we always go back through Haydock which is about ten 
minutes from home. So I interrogated mini GPS to tell me the current cell 
value. I renamed it to the current location, then set it to send a text message 
to my wife to ask her to pour me a glass of red wine.  So now, when we reach 
that location, that's what happens! She gets an appropriate text!

Now to Andy's question.  The fact is you need talks premium.  If you have that, 
you get the manual which explains everything extremely clearly.

    From what I gather, and I warn you I haven't used it, instead of using a 
GPS receiver attached to your phone, what it does is tell you about the cell 
transmitter you're closest to. i.e. your cell phone is connected to a 
transmitter at all times when switched on and in range. It might be worth 
experimenting with Mini GPS, dropping a marker the next time you're at the bus 
stop you want to find, then seeing if it gives you good or useful warning the 
next day when you return. When it moves into the range of the transmitter you 
have flagged up as important, it will tell you.

    Trouble is, if bus stops are close together where you live, and cell 
transmitters are far apart, it definitely won't work. 

    I reckon Mini GPS is likely to work best on intercity trains to give you a 
vague idea of your upcoming station and to rouse you if you're sleeping ;)

          Hi all -

          I use a bus route regularly, and I need to know when I'm at my stop. 
Is wayfinder the best tool for this job, if so, what actually do I need, where 
from, and what wil it cost me?

          Thanks -

          Andy
