Subject: Re: [aprsisce] Transmit = quick move
The road trip is actually the reason that there's an easy way to "Move ME to Center" on the transmit. If you couple it with the Configure / Beacon / After Transmit, you have an excellent APRS solution for the GPS-less netbook. Each night, you move the map to center on where you've settled in, hit Transmit, and say Yes. The "After Transmit" selection makes sure that no beacons are sent with your old location when you restart the client until you have had a chance to re-center the map on where ME should be and then manually hit Transmit.
IMHO, there's practically no other reason for the Transmit menu option beyond testing, and while testing, just make sure you're centered where you want to be or keep answering No to the question.
Maybe I'll just change the menu option to "Move ME" which implies a transmit since your location may have changed...
Glad to know the road trip went well. I also like the (configurably - see Configure / Screen / Speed Font Size) big speedometer. I trust GPS-based speeds much more than the car speedometer which seem to consistently be incorrect.
