Changes

Goodbye from Rich OwingsIt is with mixed emotions that after nearly nine years at the helm of this site, I am turning it over to someone else. Leaving the GPS Tracklog community is the hardest part; you have been incredible — supportive, inquisitive and always thirsting for more knowledge on all things GPS. For the past couple of years, other matters have kept me from giving the site as much attention as I wanted. But I am happy to say that I am leaving it in the capable hands of Matt Cook, who plans to keep things rolling along, bringing you the latest from the world of GPS.  read more

A few recent news reports about drones have got me thinking about drone regulation. The FAA has basically banned commercial use of drones for the time being (although an NTSB administrative law judge recently cast doubt of the legality of the ban). That doesn’t seem to have deterred the feds though, who are even issuing cease and desist orders for non-commercial use. read more
