On his .Mac homepage, Ian Meyer demonstrates an ingeniously simple way to use your iPod photo (and fourth generation ‘Pods) as a portable direction finder. Simply take screenshots of Google maps and download them to your iPod, and presto! Directions that doesn’t involve carrying a bulky atlas, crude drawings of the route (that’s me) or a long list of directions:
L on Downing
Go .75 miles, take the third left on Anderson
Go straight through the second major intersection after the Dairy Queen, but be sure to stay right…
What an elegant, simple, and new way to use the ever-so-ubiquitous iPod. Good job, Ian!
Props to The Unofficial Apple Weblog and Make: Blog for showing me the light.
