Looking at Google Timeline last night that operstes with G Maps. I showed all my MH trips in great detail from visits to stops with dates and exact times for the last 8 years including our 3 month tour of Marocco 7 years ago. and my trip to Cardiff last week. Spooky, I know you can turn it off but with my memory I think I might leave it on

When I read things like that I come to believe how out of touch with our younger generation we are going to be in the future. Imagine having the grandchildren over for tea and asking them about their holidays and being shown Google maps rather than their version of what they saw and did? While I, sort of, dread that it might be better than the shrug we used to get from teenage daughter ha ha!

Gosh can you remember those tedious slide shows of foreign holidays from (usually) uncles when you were a kid. I can see it now the light beam cutting through the cigarette smoke!

Yes and all those 'Lemmings' who rushed out and bought rotating picture viewers positioned beside the TV constantly scrolling through family and holiday snaps. Yuck.!!! Only took a year or so for them to show up at boot sales for €2.

The FSA formerly SIB & PIA licensed a twice convicted fraudster to handle our life´s savings. Guess what? He robbed us of £750,000. So they changed their name again to the FCA.

Can't read the article on my phone as it just got too cluttered but I've been trying for a few weeks now to get Google maps to work offline as a sat nav for the bike with headphones when there is no mobile connection. I even downloaded the map but it still doesn't work. Still a very useful tool as long as you have a connection which sadly for at least 50% of this trip over nearly four months now we haven't.

Ha ha ha ha all this high tech stuff and the old Garmin or TT still comes into it's own. How many do you want?

Yes but were you in an area with no mobile coverage?
