    kära Amanda och Robin. Härligt att ni fått igång Gps-funktionen. Jag funderar på om man som betraktare kan använda den på något sett mer än att titta på den, och vad symbolerna betyder. Ulf

      Ulf! Inte ännu men förhoppningsvis snart. Det du sett hittills är en bild av kartan, vi jobbar på fler funktioner. Håll ögonen öppna!
