The OpenStreetMap Foundation has many GPS Units, for loan to Workshops and other Events. Blackadder keeps the units when they are not in use so please also return to him and co-ordinate requests for the units through him.

How to prepare the units

  • Update this wiki page with the locations
  • Get a satellite lock pre-event
  • Clear old data including waypoints, tracks and tracks on the SD card
  • Double Check Settings, like track log interval
  • Charge the batteries! The NaviGPS units have a built-in battery and charge from USB; there are more than enough AAA rechargeables for all the Gekos. Note that the 8-way 7-hour charger should only be used to charge batteries in like pairs (i.e. don't mix capacities or charge levels within a pair; the Maplin batteries with red stripe are 900mAh and the ones without are 1000mAh, so should always be charged and used in separate pairs).
  • Try to keep spare AAAs charged for quick swaps, or for the next mapping party. Try to only charge batteries that have actually gone flat.

Battery Love

  • Charge them all at least the day BEFORE your mapping party do the following (it can take a DAY to charge the batteries on all the units).
  • Various types of batteries do not hold charge. Do not expect to fully charge them and come back in a week or two and find them still charged; they leak. See wikipedia for more.
