I recently learned on a work trip that some places in Florida still lack cell service. Meaning our data acquisition tablet was useless. However, my iPhone was able to display our location on aerial images using the onboard GPS receiver. So we completed the trip scouting drill sites and collecting samples by taking screenshots of the phone’s display and making copious notes, like we used to “back in the day”.

If lost while hiking chances are I have my Garmin GPS. But if not I’ll have my phone and it’s nice to know I can find myself with the GPS chip and find my way out. Providing I have enough battery life…
