When adding a location in my diary on the little map showing where I caught fish, is it posible to turn satellite image on? It would be a lot easier to make the location accurately. The street map doesn't show water boundaries very well. Especially if there is a lot of bayous, creek mouths, marsh etc.

Thanks in advance,

Moe

Hi Moe

At the moment I can't use satellite images for this map due to licensing issues.

The quickest, easiest and most accurate way to add log entries would be to use an iphone, android or similar smart phone with a gps receiver to take photos of your catch. ( as soon as you pull the fish out)

When you upload such a photo it includes gps information and the location will be automatically set on the map and you don't need to change anything.
Later on the details page you can view it on a satellite.

Hope that helps

I usually have the geotag turned off. I can get manually input the lat and long if needed. No big deal. I might start tagging photos for this purpose. Thanks!

yeah try with geotagging turned on.

The fishing diary is intended to work this way.

Next step from me is to produce an iphone and android app that links into the fishing diary.

So you just take a photo while out fishing with the app and the log entry is created straight away.

cheers

Now that would be very usuful! Of course, I'm currently droidless. If they could only come up with a water proof phone.

I'm using the motorola defy - thats pretty tough.

Not 100% water proof but water resistant.
Use it on my kayak all the time without any case and hasn't given up so far.

Only problem is that its got a bit older android system running :-(
