+lostinjersey Posted May 29, 2002 Share Posted May 29, 2002 I was discussing alternate use for GPS besides geocaching, we talked a bit, then I saw this story about Lobster Poaching in a forum discussion. I also saw a post that mentioned farmers are using GPS technology to spray specific areas only with pesticides. We've probably all heard the story about drug drops using GPS too. So my question is what do you personally use your GPS for besides caching? Obviously driving & directions is one thing if you're lucky enough to have mapping software on your GPS (like I do, ). But I've used mine to plot out places I want to visit while on vacation (and of course local geocaches too). I also started using mine at any place where the parking lot is tremendous (such as the airport). Make a waypoint, find my car instantly. plus I can make a note of the nearest parking sign... "Remember kids, we're in the Itchy lot"... Homer Simpson I also used it while traveling in flight to VEgas to be able to correctly answer my wife's question "Are we there yet". besides it was way too cool to be able to tell my fellow passenger (who had speculated aloud) how fast we were flying... So what about you? PS You could also you it to mark your own burial plot, then have the coordinates marked on the headstone itself. that'd be reallll cool. I've instructed my wife to find out the coordinates for Englewood hospital as well as the spot where I die, then post them on the marker. William Angus Born N40°54.147' W73°58.102' died... N41°74.007' W72°59.988' [This message was edited by Gwho on May 30, 2002 at 05:39 PM.] Quote Link to comment
