I guess there will come a time when crims will provide mobile networks for
free...or maybe they could just offer free wifi.

On a tangent, for my walks, someone suggested I implement it in augmented
reality, which, I understand, is a system where your phone provides you
with information relevant to your location.

Has anyone had any experience with this?

I have a few walks on Google Maps...not sure if they are available as an
augmented reality.
