Almost every day I am dismayed to see what the iphone's predictive spelling has done to the previous night's post. And at this time, I don't have a workable way to either review the text before it is published, or to make corrections to an existing post without upsetting the timeline of history. So please make your own mental edits when it says that "we were had to arrive" or "critters scampered across the pathetic".
The phone is tremendously useful in mapping, finding hotels, restaurants and bike shops, getting weather predictions and taking pictures. It's a struggle to compose narrative photo essays, though. Marie's phone runs "Ride with GPS" which gives us a pre-planned route that does not drain her phone's battery. We only use Google Maps directions to get us back to the intended route after we're lost, because it really drains the battery. (That is about 5 times a day).
