Narrative

I just bought a bluetooth GPS receiver, and with the aid of a clever bit of software called Wayfinder Active, and a unlimited 3G account, I could create a route, and upload it directly to their servers. Nice idea, and a well executed bit of software. Of course, you need a modern phone, a data account (preferably all-you-eat as it uses lots of data), and a bluetooth GPS unit (which go for under 30 pounds these days).
