I've ordered a similar, but much smaller device from PingGPS. This one looks pretty bulky to me?

I've already answered that, yes they were hashed.

Apologies... I didn't see your reply for some reason. I perhaps didn't notice there was a Page 2. Smile

Did you store user's passwords in the clear or were these hashed? Thanks

Ditto the above... Were they stored hashed?

I never really understood why, if the Apple Maps clearly use data provided by TomTom, why they contain so many errors which the TomTom data doesn't also have. It seems unlikely Apple (or anyone) would ...

Oh great, they will then sell the data to all comers

You make it sound like that's a bad thing? I really hope they DO sell data to everyone. I see no advantages to sat-navs having inaccurate data. ...

Thankfully any TomTom with HD Traffic will handle this automatically without you having to choose specific routes.

GPS doesn't have any problems at the poles. The satellite orbits are inclined and they're sufficiently high that they're easily "visble" anywhere on the Earth

I think he meant the problems with tim ...

many flight crew/airlines won't allow the use of GPS receivers in aircaft (or will wearers be banned from entering the plane)

Really? Which airlines ban it? I've never come across one myself.

I wish OS would do Sat Navs, we might stand some chance of getting somewhere without too many errors.
OS map data lacks any routing info so they wouldn't be much use.

I'm wondering if OpenStreetMa ...

Have to agree. Why do people need know where speed cameras and drink-drive traps are? I hope that all apps designed to allow people to drive while drunk or speeding eventually get banned so we can get ...

Surprised at this article with PGPSW being very pro-speeding. I would have thought you'd release your own iPhone app to help people drink-drive without getting caught? Smile

Doesn't excuse the RWIPC issue though, I wonder what chipset they are using?

It's Sirf III but I think it's a poor implementation with no non-volatile storage of almanac (orbital) data (ie not even ...
