    I am building this animation for my county search and rescue. This is for the introduction to GPS, and is in the 1st prototype stage for development. I thought i would let you all preveiw it. It needs work and spell checking, and dosent always work as i am making it on the go but you can check it out anyway. this is also geared to the garmin gps 12 receiver, as that is what our county uses.

    I tried it on my 56k connection and it loaded ok. Took a little while but I've seen much worse.

    Your presentation looks pretty good so far. I did notice on one page the lettering was a bit garbled. I think it was the page showing arrows to different areas of the display.

    Does you're search and rescue units use APRS by chance? If not, you should look into it.

    That wont work either. Wireless connections have HIGH packet loss. I would be better off with 56k lol
