  3. Here is a link to an interesting story I just found:

     

    Europeans Want Their Own GPS

    Here is JUST a small snippet:

     

    quote:
    Despite strong opposition from Washington, the European Union has voted to move ahead on its Galileo satellite-based navigation system, which will compete with Uncle Sam's Global Positioning System. No date has been set for launching the Galileo system.

     

    You can aslo download a document from Galileo:

    GALILEO: A decision must be taken urgently

    Pick "en" for english...

     

     

    What do you think? How much support is there from the general population?

     

    I'd love to hear from our European geocacher friends, too.

  4. (SORRY: a tad off topic, I know)

     

    I heard that there is a new sort of geocaching using cell phones and I wonder if THIS (Amy's link above) is the device that they are using.

     

    I might have the details wrong, but it has something to do with receiving GPS coordinates onto your phone BUT you must be AT a particular lat/long combination before it will download to your phone.

     

    Does that sound familiar (or intriguing) to anyone out there? Any more details available?
