Context of comment:Hi, Not sure if this is the correct way to enter info or where to go on your site to ask for or offer info so hear goes:
I have been getting your very newsy MV on email for some time now and I find it very informative. Some pals and I are regular hillwakers, mostly Wicklow, The Mournes and the Cooleys. Some of us are also Geocachers so we have quite an interest in the GPS technology and walking routes and access to the hills.
I have some Mountain pictures of my own that may be of interest to OSI as per your article of this month. Do you know how I contact them or where exactly to send them?
Another of your current articles suggests a seminar which may give instruction on photography in the hills. I ma very keen to know more about that if possible. Is there someone I can contact about it?
I use an iPhone and I downloaded the excellent app for it which converts grid refs to GPS use. Thank you for the tip. I notice it only converts, like the OSI Trailmaster, to 2 decimal points only. Is that correct or can it be tweaked to do more?
One of the current articles mentions that there is no commercial topo maps for GPSrs. I assume you are aware of the 53 Degrees North Store and its Garmin backed product which provides the current OSI maps for a select number of GPSrs, Garmin Dakotas, Colorados and Oregons? This is simply the Trailmaster on a GPS. I find these OSI maps (the current available Discovery Series), Trailmaster and now this version pretty dramatically out of date regarding walking trails and in particular Coillte forest tracks and correct access options.
Just a few points and questions, I hope I am addressing the correct person(s)

Regards,

Sean P
