Starbucks and GPS!
Thursday, August 16, 2018
My old phone had a horrible issue with GPS. It was readily apparent when I used my walking apps and Pokemon Go. The new phone has no issues at all with GPS! I was playing around with Google assistant and got it to give me directions to Starbucks yesterday. It did okay, but it could have been more in depth. I downloaded Waze last night to give it a try. I loaded Starbucks in there and told it to take me there. Yes, I already know the way. I could drive over there in my sleep. I just wanted to test the app. It did fine. I got a drink while I was there. Of course. :P
I entered in the post office after that to see what it would do with that. It kept trying to send me the wrong way! I'm not sure if it was the app or me. Probably me as I didn't pull over to start it. After I left the post office, I told it to get me home and it tried to carry me quicker route home so that was okay. I don't think I would depend on the Google directions or the Waze directions if I were out of town. Of course, if I had been able to look at my phone, it would have been better. I'll have to get a mount for my car. I think if I could glance at the screen, it would be helpful. If I get a mount, I'll try it again and see how it goes. I think that would be good to use. I can use it at the beach next month if I am walking and get turned around. That actually happened one year. I went walking and walked somewhere I'd never been. It took awhile, but I got back to the ocean. LOL
I did NOT want to walk today. I had made up my mind to skip it. Then, I got my ass up and walked! It was so hot out there that I regretted it at first. I was happy when I got done and got home in the air conditioning! I cooled off and relaxed and then did my workouts. I wanted to skip those too, but I did them!
