Mobile technology should not be about cramming the office into your pocket but a way to enjoy your everyday life.

One week in Shanghai


GPS track showing one week of walking during a vacation in Shanghai, China. Shanghai has got more skyscrapers than the entire west coast in the US, so it is not particularly GPS friendly. Especially when going by subway, walking a few blocks and then back down into the subway - usually the GPS did not manage to lock on to enough satellites to get any positions at all in between subway rides and going into department stores.

Still, the Garmin Foretrex 101 did I great job under the circumstances. It sits nicely on the wrist while you're walking and doesn't hinder you in any way.
