Thanks to tonybater who has pointed out that this is also possible with a Windows phone.

There's a free app called GPSInfo (v1.6), and it's available from the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Cheers, Tony :)

Yes it has reached me, but the information is incomplete. This is what I received:

Have parked here 2 or 3 times now and never any problems . Hopefully this might be added. Many thanks


Here are the details of a location that I selected using TomTom App for iPad:

Location:
Unnamed Road
Ton Kenfig

View location:

Open in TomTom App for iPhone/iPad

Open in TomTom Route Planner

Open in Google Maps

The links don't make it through the ticketing system at Wild Camping for some reason ...

I will ask Phil to take a look.

Just a reminder, or advice for newer members, this thread tells you how you can submit new locations easily whilst on your travels this Summer ...

Thank you :D

Downloaded GPS share to my android phone and attempted to send a link to poi@wildcamping.co.uk of a stopover location in Winsford Cheshire, handy for Oulton Park racing circuit,
Did it work?

Here I am

There are three Here I Am apps on the apple store. Two to pay for and one free. Which app is it you would prefer!

Your test was received by me, and acknowledged by email.

My Android phone will continue to try sending emails using Gmail until it has a connection, be it 3g or wi-fi. So it shouldn't be a problem to use this approach.

I`ve added this feature to Tog-Along+ for the new version. Testing it just now, hope you got my message ok :)

Thanks for your reply Chris. Is there a preferred format for submitting POIs?

That will be useful, Mike.

The least ambiguous latitude/longitude format has to be degrees and decimal degrees ... e.g. 99.99999

I`ve made it so you can send by whatever method you choose e.g. email, text, WhatsApp etc

At the moment, the format is:

Name: This place
Details: Right here
Lat: 53.xxxxx.....
Lon: -2.xxx.....
Map: http://www.Google map link

Tog-Along+ » Manage your photos, places, people and lots more! «
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.tog.along.plus


Is that enough or is there anything you`d like me to add/remove? The message is editable before its sent anyway.

That looks fine to me Mike.

Is email the default option, because that will mimic the apps out there at present?

Email is just a tap away.

You type in a name, some details then choose how to send:

These are the options I have, most people will at least have email.
