Aaron Linson here, I am thinking about purchasing the Sendero GPS for my
Braille Sense U2. When I asked for a braille display for my work as an audio
production engineer running my own business. I didn't even get the choice of a
full display or note taking device. Well, I am glad in a way. I find that the
android note takers from what I have heard and seen on facebook groups are
horrible. I feel that AT and android are not a really good match. This is
because of the inconsistence of android and the many different versions and
flavors. I am happy with my Braille Sense U2 however, I am wondering if it
would still even be possible to get the Sendero GPS for it. I am also wondering
what would be the differences in using my phone with nearby explorer on iOS
versus using Sendero GPS on my Braille Sense U2? Thanks for any insight anyone
can provide. Let me know if you still rock an older note taking device like me.

Agreed! I still have my PK, VoiceSense, and many other devices that I’ve
purchased over the past many years. Unfortunately none of them work anymore.
I’ve used Sendero GPS on all of them, and am missing that good old reliable
functionality of Sendero GPS on a stand alone note taker.

If I still had a PK there’d be no doubt this is what I would use. So sad they

On an exploration of Kansas Saturday, I had my BrailleNote PK GPS running as we
drove from Wichita to the Flint Hills. Along the way, I could call out the
names of the small bergs and interesting points of interest we were passing
while monitoring directions. The driver would call out interesting sights as
well. It was a wonderful way of sharing information and making the most of what
you might otherwise think was a ho-hum environment.
Our destination was Strong City Kansas and the Tall Grass nature conservancy
where we hiked a few miles through the rolling hills. Fortunately, none of the
local bison were grazing in our vicinity. They may not have cared that our dogs
were guide dogs. It was an absolutely beautiful day.
My favorite part of traveling is the unexpected person you meet. It also was a
beautiful day for stone masons to be repairing the hundred year old 4 foot high
stone walls separating the highway from the conservancy. One of the workers
broke off from his work and introduced himself. I could barely understand his
accent. He was Neil from Scotland, specifically here to lead a crew restoring
885 feet of wall. I grabbed a quick audio clip of Neil talking to us.
Some of you may remember one term we used for custom user points of interest,
virtual footprints. These are the points we attach to files uploaded to the
shared database for your BrailleNote and Braille Sense GPS as well as for the
Sendero Maps for the PC. I marked a point for this Tall Grass location and
attached an audio clip of Neil talking to us. So, if you use your Sendero Maps
to download User POIs with F5, you too will have this and thousands of other
points recorded around the world, our virtual footprints. In the details, you
can see the name or initials of the person who provided that point. In my case,
it is MGM. I noticed yesterday a point in Kansas recorded by someone calling
himself Genius Boy, whomever that is.
Using my PK on this trip was a reminder of the rich feature-set we developed
over 15 years, like User points, manual routes, bread crumbs and many more.
None of the iPhone apps come close to having all these features but of course
we primarily use the mobile apps because of their convenience. When you really
want to have details at your fingertips, break out the old GPS software and if
you are feeling ambitious, add your own footprints to the shared database.
Remember, “It is better to travel hopefully than to arrive.”
