- Sep 24, 2005Wow, this is fun. Okay, I thought I'd summarize some of our ideas
so far for some other versions to consider.
- LANDSAT image of bay
- Symmetrical ninja-staresq design
- Waypoints instead of stars
- Labeled cities
I've got a Magellan unit, but I used to have a Garmin Vista...Lance,
I assume you're refering to the waypoint used in the garmin which is
like a little triangle on a pole?
Does anyone like the idea of labelling the cities as you would in a
GPS? i.e. abbreviated "MRY" & "SCRUZ"? Just a thought.
Also, should we incorporate the year somewhere on there?
