Navigating by OSM over 1 year ago

That went rather well. Sure, it maybe sometimes sent me down a slower road that I might've taken, but at no time was I actually lost or confused. Saved me a ton of cash on Garmin maps, too.

Great work by the UK mappers and routers!

End of Newton Mearns mapping for now over 1 year ago

Chaos99: really? I thought that Ctrl+V was a Java standard. Didn't know anything could change that. I started using the standard JNLP version because I was sick of having it complain about updates.

I managed to convert the waypoints to OSM using GPSBabel, and then uploaded via josm - thanks!

thanks, nmixter, but would't potlatch expect me to drag a new symbol over each point? That would get old after the third unit or so.
