How is AT&T working out for you?

I would love to get an iPhone, but I'm hearing some bad things about AT&T

Downloading the Navioncs software right now and I also decided to buy the Lakes:Minnesota - Water Mao Navigator to go along with it. I liked that the Water Map Navigator has all the public launches listed for the lakes.

I will let you all know what I think of the apps... tough to beat the $6 I just spent for it all.

My buddy got it last winter. It's not that great from what i've heard. No waypoint saving and it doesn't zoom in enough? Unless they've updated?

The iphone software has advanced quite a ways since then. You can do route tracking and set waypoints, the zoom has been modified with better controls also. Lots of features for $6. Paying $45 to be a beta tester was a bad choice on my part.. smile

Not an I-Phone application deal.... but you may be interested in looking at what Garmin has going with the 2 new Garmin phones coming out this summer.

They will be able to do full GPS, Google Earth, and chip data. Map downloads on the go too.

Garmin has a partnership arrangement for mapping with LakeMaster and BlueTooth, and now with Google Earth...so the possibility's there are darn near endless.

What service is going to offer these?

At&t already has that on the iphone. Well I guess it doesn't take chips but like others said I got both Mn mapping apps for $6 and thats all Navionics north data and Minnesota fishing data with accesses and markers. It also has Google earth on it with gps so you can see exactly where you are. There is just getting to be gps's out that do that now. And the iphone google map has driving directions on it too.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
    • 2 baldies were getting it on last thursday about 100 yards from where we were fishing. pretty cool. spring is in the air... LOL
    •   Too late. It's now undergoing the digestive process as I type   This is first rabbit dinner I've had since my early 20's and I'm going to be 57 this year. I shot them while grouse hunting this fall and winter but haven't specifically targeted them since I was much younger. I've never heard of anyone really going after them anymore
