Re: Portable Gps

If memory serves, iPhones, at least at one point, were using a database of known wifi reference points to enhance navigation. I also have no doubt cell-based devices can be set to use tower reference points to gain accuracy as mentioned.

The more open the sky view, the more GPS satellites can be tracked by a GPS to gain accuracy, but if a device lacks a cellular connection or wifi with an associated database, options get fewer and fewer, especially for a handheld unit.

One other item of possible interest (thinking of the taxi comment)-- a built in GPS in a car will, at least in some cases, use extra tricks, most notably the antilock brake sensors, to count wheel revolutions and the speedometer when GPS signals gets lost (especially in say, a tunnel) and estimate position based on that. It can be pretty accurate because when you turn the wheels, there is differential between the left and right wheel speeds. (I think that's called the yaw rate.) That trick won't work so well when someone is walking with a handheld. I believe many portable car units will similarly assume continued constant velocity at least for a short time upon signal loss. I have no idea what a Trekker can do in such a situation.

I haven't heard of Captain Mobility before. will have to look it up.

Trekker Breeze is strictly auditory but can't hook up to a Packmate as
you know. IT does give you which streets are in what direction and
more details if you set a route, and will redirect you if you go
off-route. IT's rather accurate and landmarks are excellent as far a
location goes while passing a particular place.

Unfortunately, it seems that everyone has the standard $700 or so when
it comes to the latest GPS. I had to save a llong time to get mine. Do
you have a Lion's Club where you can inquire about a grant? If you
give a good cause to why you need the device, they most often would be

Re: Portable Gps

Dave...
 

Adrian, yes GPS can be an issue in those urban canyons with all the
multi-path bouncing of the signal off tall vertical structures. However
there must be better technology in the GPS receivers for the mainstream
market, or too many taxi drivers would complain on those same streets. I
suspect that the GPS engine used in the Trekker could be replaced (by them,
of course) with a more technically-savvy GPS engine that uses better
algorithms to calculate and interpolate position where so much multi-path
interference abounds. Most cities today also have a ground-based enhanced
GPS network (called WAAS) with fixed base points usually installed on cell
towers, that significantly improve GPS navigation. In fact, I'm surprised
that Trekker did so poorly in these times when Garmin and Tom-Tom seem to
have no problems at all. My wife and I used a handheld Garmin when we
visited NYC last year, and it was very accurate in describing the street
intersections and locations of addresses.

Your review of Trekker's performance should have caused the makers of
Trekker to go back to their drawing boards and improve the product.

Re: Question about compacting OE messages

Tom Lange
 

Hi,
I get this periodically, too. It won't harm your messages in any way; OE is basically compressing the mailboxes to save space.

I do, however, have literally thousands upon thousands of messages in OE's mailbox folders, and that will take some time to compact. Don't be surprised, also, if you get an error message from time to time saying that a mailbox is in use. If that happens, just click OK and continue.

Re: Downloading

Adrian Spratt
 

Gezim,

As Jen said, it would help if you could tell us which web browser you're referring to and perhaps what kind of problem you're having. Traditionally, on pressing a download link, you could press alt-s to save to your computer or alt-o to open the file without saving. With IE9, you now need to press alt-n before making these selections, which you find by arrowing.

There might be more to say, but there's no point in going on without knowing the exact problem.

Subject: Two JAWs questions.


HI folks! I ran into two separate issues at work today, and need some help.
First, I need to know how to change the zoom level in Internet Explorer. I
have to use the browser at 110%. I see how I can change it from 100, to a25
and then to 150, by using the left mouse click on the bottom of the screen
where the percentage displays, but I don't have the option for 110. Is
there a way to get into that option another way?

\Secondly, I am needing to know how to switch from TAB to TAB within a
spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel, 2007.

Re: Task Bar, Pinning Items to the task bar, Two Cool Keystrokes to add / use

Hi Paul,

After pressing the Windows key + t, the first time, you can also right &
left arrow through the pinned items. I believe arrowing will go in a loop.
Take care.

After you have pinned your
favorite programs to the Taskbar and you know how to launch them using the
Windows key plus the numbers 1 through 9.
However, if you are not sure where you put what, and need a reminder of
which numbered slots your programs hold on the taskbar, simply hit Windows +
the letter T, and your focus will be on the first item in the taskbar.
Press Windows plus t again to cycle through each item. Just count up in
your head from 1 to 9 and you will know which program is in which slot.

Once you know which numbers to use, you can use the Alt plus Windows plus
the number to launch the Jump list for that program. For example, let's say
the last document you worked on was memo.doc and you want to go back to it
from the desktop. Instead of opening Word and going into the File menu, or
going into Documents and finding it that way, simply hit alt plus Windows
plus the number for Word (assuming that Word is pinned to the taskbar), and
bingo, you are in a vertical list of the last few documents you worked on.
Just quickly arrow to memo.doc and hit enter and there it is. It is very
very cool.

Take care.
Mike

This is a large subject that I'm reading about today in CathyAnne Murtha's
textbook, which I strongly recommend for anyone learning Word 2010. The
hotkey for the fonts dialog is control-d.
