What's New in Version 1.5
+ Fixed the altitude issue in the email
+ Fixed a problem in email with the map
+ Added a flashlight button which turns on the front LED (button is only visible on iPhone 4 and 4S)
+ automatic address detection: If the gps accuracy is good enough and an internet connection is available, your current address is displayed in a scrolling label.
In this case the address is also added to the email.
The address is refreshed every minute if your location has changed more than 10 meters.
Good app, request 1 tweak
App displays the google maps link and coordinates. Please display the coordinates in a way to paste them into gpskit or other offline map tool.
It would be nice if it also had the coordinate format "degrees and minutes (DM)" which is the format that Garmin GPSs use. This would make it easier to input the data into a Garmin.
Manual position does not work it still sends local position rather than deviated position
Manual position a very nice feature so that you can point to a place where we will meet and send as though we were there unfortunately this does not work
