[access-uk] Re: trekker breeze walk podcast

hi but it is designed for routes you already know
i think if the regular trekker was that price, more people would buy it but a thousand pounds? that's a joke but if people keep paying a thousand pounds for a GPS it will never come down. people should refuse to buy it and then the price will have to drop
but the breeze has a specific market

Hi.
as I say in todays episode oc the podcast don't right it off just yet, and if you subscribe to Infotech listen to the detailed interview with the product manager from Humanware as he is very clear about the way the breeze works and the needs its trying to address.

By the way can I just thank everyone for the nice things you have all been saying about the podcast, if you want a touch of Aus and a touch of technical creativity and in total a good laugh the current episode is worth a listen.
Cheers everyone!

Hi Ray, it really was farcical. When I first heard about them I'd been very interested in getting one, but not now. When you get a minute have a listen. I'm sure you'll aggree. The link to the podcast is

John, had to smile at these thoughts of yours. I can tell you of at least two points of interest, the Thisle Hotel or maybe Straf- Allan, and the Garden House pub across the road. Of course there are many hotels around that area too. You mean to say none of this came up?

Folks, save your four or five hundred quid and get something better!

Cheers,
Ray.

Hi everybody, I'm awaiting with interest peoples' comments now we've had opportunity to hear the Trekker Breeze. Judging by the comments of those on the walk they were less than impressed with its performance. It only announced one road junction, and that was it. Noannouncements of surrounding features, pubs, theatres, etc, as Humanware claim in their blerb it will announce. The only ttwo things that were announced were a trash bin and the sight village gates, both of which had been manually entered as landmarks. A lady asked the question if she was going to the hospital by taxi and then walking back would the trekker breeze take her home. The guy from Humanware said it would, but the taxi would have to take the exact route she'd walk. In another part of the podcast someone asked about announcements of surrounding features, and one of the items consisted of a snatch of conversation between walkers, which the unit said was 400 feet from a road junction. Over the whole walk there were very few announcements. I take it the Humanware rep was sighted. The best test of it would have been for the walk to have been done with the blind party, without the sighted guy, just using the trekker breeze. Given how little it would seem to be able to do without being told I think the price is excessive.
                  John.
