I have made a small but very valuable new function on the pilot locator. You properly all know about the driving directions function on the map, where you can enter your address or PinID to get a driving direction to a specific pushpin on the map. That is a very useful function.
But now I got a GPS and I found that the map is missing something very useful, the ability to transfer the position from the map to a GPS device. There is a million ways to do this, but one way I found could be used on all GPS device is to enter the position manually, and now you can with the pilot locator.
From my personal experience from driving to competitions at different flying field around Denmark, I have learned that it can be okay to have the address of the flying field, the address can get you in the area of the flying field but not all the way, because the field is often placed on some grass field with no address. But if you enter the exact location of the field, you can see on the GPS where the field is located and that way get to the flying field in one go.
Here is what you have to do:
1. Find the flying field on the map you would like to travel to.
2. Click on the icon on the map and go to the last tab “Service” (See picture below)
3. Enter the GPS values from the “Service” tab in to you GPS device, (It is properly the “position” menu on you GPS device)
4. Give the POI a name on the GPS, and now you can see the location on your GPS and drive to the flying field.
Please let me know if you like the feature and if you can use it on your GPS device, leave a comment.
