Smartphones & Tablets


Hands-On Comments on the 6 and 6+

When I was researching whether to get the iPhone 6 or 6+, I found a lot of websites about the specifications, comparisons to various other phones, etc., but very few articles about how they were in everyday life. So, I thought I'd offer my perspective and answer questions potential buyers might have.

Tablets that can use gps with dataplan usage?

Hi - New here. This seems like the place to getthis question answered. I was wondering why dedicated gps devices can function without a cellular or wifi connection but smartphones using GPS can incur dataplan costs.

Google Maps and Speed Cameras

I'm sure this has been asked, however I did not find a thread so I will ask.

Is it possible to download the Speed and Red Light file and use them with Google Maps on my Nexus 4 ( Same phone as the LG E960 )

Gmap4 = View topos/aerials *offline* and your geolocation

I have posted here before about Gmap4 which is an enhanced Google map viewer that I developed. Up until this summer I believed that Gmap4 would not work if your mobile browser was offline.

I was wrong.


Anyone know about this app for a smart phone, how good / bad, comebts...


Google Maps tracks you. All the time. How to opt-out...

The NSA is tracking us

As most everyone knows from reading the news about the Snowden/NSA leaks, the NSA is spying on everyone, all the time, and storing the data forever in huge data warehouses.

HP slate

Any body had comments on these. I have had 2, first locked up looking for a pass word. After a trip to Colorado, India and Phillapines and back to India I was told the unit was faulty derrr. Relacement unit failed to turn on. I was sent a replacemnt, in the meantime I had purchaced a Samsung tab3, it worked perfectly out the box, one small problem which was solved via "live chat".

Does anyone know how to get the POI alerts on CoPilot GPS nav app for Android to speak the category of the POI set for audio alert? Right now it just says "Point of Interest" instead of for example, "Rest Area".

SmartPhone And Smartwatch GPS Application

I don't have a wristwatch synched with my smartphone, but I know they exist. Is anybody here running a GPS app on their smartphone and seeing a map on their watch display? Part of me is interested in getting a wristwatch connected to my smartphone so that I can read text messages, etc., but then I started thinking about the GPS function.


I am posting this here because although this isn't a cell phone forum, since this uses a smartphone and has the ability to send GPS coordinates, this might be of some interest to some members here.

Life in a solid state world

Today, I overslept for work. I'm a full-blown middle-aged person. smile

Why? Because the speaker on my Razr Maxx stopped working.

I have 5 alarms set, which go off between 4:25 AM EST and 5:30 AM. A fool proof system, until the speaker stops working.

Even worse, I am on-call. I could have missed a call because the ringer uses the speaker.

Navigating Via Cell Tower Triangulation

If you have NO GPS signal whatsoever. Say you are in an underground parking facility or deep in a mall, etc., and want to determine where you are, what apps are best suited for this? In fact, if you turned off the GPS, would some apps do an okay job of navigating or would it be pretty crude?

new plans (wireless service)

What do you folks think about the new phone plans? i.e. say family of 4 smartphones, 10gb shared, $160, but you can't upgrade?
