I know mine has a USB port. I suppose I have to see if there is a way I can obtain a cable that has a USB plug on one end and a plug for the Nokia phone on the other end. Pam.

The one you ordered about a year and a half ago? That was the Summit
3000 and I do believe it does have a normal USB port so you can plug
in your charging cable. It's the smaller brother to the MyCharge 6000
with less mAh but looks and feels the same. i'll have to hunt around
and see if I can find the one we couldn't sell because only the iPhone
part of it worked so I can guide you to the USB port. It's around here

Power banks are reasonably priced these days. I wager that most folks have
one handy for use in an emergency, and they probably keep it in their
purses
just so they can have access to it when needed.

I do bring one with me whenever my restless legs prowl towards the airport
to throw me out of this place for several weeks! I do find myself in areas
of this great universe where electricity is just a name on paper, it's
never
actually there, and, if it does show up, only for a few hours a day. With
my 26,000 mAh power bank, I've gone a bit longer than a week without
needing
a recharge. Why? Well, my clunky, ancient and minor Shiny Android toy
only
needs a charge once every two days! Guess I'm a "sickhead" lucky brat in
this regard. Oh well, I am here trying to map out where my parachute

Re: Seeing Eye & RNIB navigator

Edward Green <ergreen1981@...>
 

Hi Walter,

 

They are identical products, I use Seeing Eye GPS XT.

 

The maps are online rather than downloaded to your phone, so you always get access to whatever map is stored on the server.  This is apparently why you can’t set a start destination that you’re not in.

 

The app is available in the UK App Store, it’s Nearby Explorer from APH which is only available in the US and Canada.

 

App updates to Seeing Eye GPS XT have been free since I’ve been using it (just over a year).

 

Cheers,

 

Ed

Hi guys.  Just a slight change of direction from "GPS route planning" to a specific product.

 

I notice that in the App store the Sendero Seeing Eye GPS system is available for £200 and The RNIB navigator is subscription based (£2.99 per month.  Now keeping in mind both those products are Sendero products I'm wondering just what is the difference between them?  I've listened to podcasts demonstrating both products and from what I can tell both are exactly the same, well, I think they are.  At first before checking I thought that Seeing Eye was American based only and couldn't be obtained here and that The RNIB Navigator was the UK version but since both are offered in the UK app store I'm now not sure.

 

In addition: if one purchases the Seeing Eye product for £200 then must you pay for future map updates and if one opts for the RNIB Navigator then does the monthly subscription include any future map updates?  Anybody who has experience or knowledge with either or both of these products your comments would be appreciated.  Walter.

Assuming I am right, it should have come with a USB plug at one end, and

I'll be shocked if your power bank, talking or not, doesn't come with at

Even though I have an S5 touch screen phone, I still use the N86 charger
to

It might be worth confirming this with Sendero, but I believe there is a licence renewal fee.  However, I don't think it's as high as purchasing the initial licence - it may be around $50.

Hi Walter,

 

I think what you need costs $79, as you don't need the GPS functionality if you're exploring the route virtually, unless of course you want to use your PC when you're out and about navigating the route.

Hi all.  When the trekker maestro was current it was possible to plan a route by entering an origin point then the destination point.  You could then examine the route before attempting it.  In other words from my home I could set the origin point as a train station hundreds of miles from my location and put in the destination; say a hotel or restaurant and preview the route in advance.  When the Trekker Maestro was discontinued and the Trekker Breeze, then the Breeze plus took it's place that feature was discontinued.  As I understand it the new Victor Reader Trek will also not have this helpful feature.  Does anybody know of an accessible GPS system that does have this feature or iPhone app that has the feature?  I have Blindsquare and it doesn't have this ability.  I've listened to podcasts about the RNIB navigator but that also didn't appear to have this feature.  In looking for something with that feature It would appear that the emphasis with accessible GPS is more on orientation than route finding or planning.  By the way, I'm in the UK so that might limit what is available or can be suggested.  Walter.

Well, I can charge my mp3 player. I was hoping I could charge my phone. Pam.

Unfortunately, I bought the talking power bank, and it
doesn't have a cable that fits my cellphone, or a place to
plug in my cellphone charger. Pam.

Power banks are reasonably priced these days. I wager that
most folks have one handy for use in an emergency, and they
probably keep it in their purses just so they can have
access to it when needed.

I do bring one with me whenever my restless legs prowl
towards the airport to throw me out of this place for
several weeks! I do find myself in areas of this great
universe where electricity is just a name on paper, it's
never actually there, and, if it does show up, only for a
few hours a day. With my 26,000 mAh power bank, I've gone a
bit longer than a week without needing a recharge. Why?
Well, my clunky, ancient and minor Shiny Android toy only
needs a charge once every two days! Guess I'm a "sickhead"
lucky brat in this regard. Oh well, I am here trying to map
out where my parachute should drop next!

Sincerely,
Olusegun
Denver, Colorado
