Garmin GPS map 64 s and LIVE TRACK
« on: August 13, 2014, 04:28:22 pm »
It appears that with this GPS you get an app that allows people to track you in real time..... anyone know anything about this? It seems that this would be the way to go if its via gps... in terms of not needing a tracking system? OR is this actually paired with your phone and then needs the cellphone signal just like the phone apps?

This from the website:

http://garmin.blogs.com/my_weblog/2014/01/garmin-introduces-gpsmap-64-series-updating-popular-outdoor-handheld.html#.U-t0OXmKDcs

Additionally, the 64s and 64st models are compatible with the BaseCamp mobile app for data transfer, and the Garmin Connect™ mobile app, for features such as LiveTrack. With LiveTrack, users can pair their device with the app, and invite friends and family to follow their activity in real time. This provides peace of mind, especially if users are alone.

if u are interested in something no matter what it is, go at it full speed ahead, luke warm is no good, hot is no good either, white hot and passionate is the only thing to be...
