On earthnative's recommendation I'm downloading a GPS app (Gaia Lite) for the iPhone.

I just got a mature content warning, as in minimum age of 17. For a GPS.

Confused now.

Apparently it is because they link to Wikipedia. See above.

I'm intending to dodge the battery issue by running the iPhone off a dynamo anyway. :)

oooh makes sense then.

btw, I just updated my wiki with a few new apps I've installed (nothing special though I think)

This is what I'm looking at: http://pedalpower.com.au/index.htm

I just spoke to the guy running the operation and apparently the iPhones are a bit finicky with their acceptable voltage ranges.

The workaround apparently is for the dynamo to charge a battery pack and then to charge the iPhone from the battery back.

Oh, and apparently there is another bit of kit in there somewhere that allows the dynamo to charge the battery pack AND run the lights at the same time.

I think that concept deserves an evil villain laugh so here is one: bwahahahahaha!
