GPS – Some amazing applications

by | Mar 10, 2009 | jahlberg

I have to admit that when I saw this article in wired Magazine I almost skipped it thinking to myself that GPS is just GPS so what could be new and exciting about that. Tells you what I know about GPS. There are some really amazing applications available out there, but only for a few device types…for now. I especially like the app that let’s you know when you have reached your train stop (this is great for a dark winter night) and the one that allows you to auto configure your phone depending on your location (IE: at the movies your phone will automatically turn the ringer off). Not to mention the app that helps find a cab or a good restroom.

Check out the full Wired article and see what the future holds for your PDA and GPS.
