Weekly GPS Bites for Week Ending August the 5th 2012

Weekly GPS Bites is a new feature that we are going to start publishing each and every week.  We can’t claim it’s an original idea, so hats off to Rich Owings at the GPS Tracklog website for inspiring this new weekly update – he already publishes the excellent Waypoints weekly bulletin on his website which we thoroughly recommend so make sure that you check that out if you are not already aware of it.

We will basically try to condense small snippets of GPS news, basically the items which were not quite worthy of a full news page, but are still interesting nonetheless.  Here’s the first edition – we hope you like it! Make sure you bookmark GPS Bites and sign-up to our social media networks so you can get this weekly fix of GPS news every seven days.
