Thread: Another use of GPS technology

    Default Another use of GPS technology

    I just came across this article that paints a good picture of just how far GPS technology has gone. There are both positive and negative sides to it, such as privacy concerns, but I am sure it is all good for our sport. It boggles the mind to think of all the data flying through the air around us!

    Just think of all those General Motors vehicles with OnStar!

    Now just think what someone who wants to do harm with it could do if they gained access to it.

    Actually, I'm a lot more worried about getting hit by lightning!

    Angry Being tracked?

    So I should cancel the On-star on my Tahoe. But then the antenna will still attract lightening, then who do I call.

    Well, if you're a good geocacher, you'll have your cell phone so you can call 911, and your GPS to tell them exactly where you are, and hopefully a FTF pin for the rescuer!
