Here is a run through on how I use my IPhone and the different apps that I use for gravin.
App # 1: MAPS (Comes standard with the IPhone.)
|This is my home screen.|
Next, I search for cemeteries in the town I will be passing. Here is an example. I searched "Cemeteries in Rogers, AR".
All the red pins are different cemeteries in the area. If you touch the red dot the cemetery name will pop up. I have found that several times they have left one or two out. So if you are looking for a specific one then type the name of the cemetery in and it should show up.
If you would rather see them in list form you can get that too. Touch the curled page in the lower right corner.
This page shows up.
Now it's up to you to follow the purple line and you will make it. As you travel along the purple line the flashing blue dot will keep track of where you are at on it. I have noticed that even when I am in areas with no signal the blue dot still keeps track. Not sure how that works but its pretty cool that it does. And of course you can zoom in and out on the map to get closer looks at street names.
Helpful tip: I like to use the drop pins. I generally visit numerous cemeteries in one trip so to keep track of the locations I visited I use a drop pin. That way after I return home and realize I forgot to photograph the cemetery sign (I generally photo the signs after each cemetery so that it marks the dividing point in my photos.) I can pull out my phone and see which one I forgot. To place a pin you hold your finger on the screen and the pin will appear then you move it to where you want it placed and remove your finger. The pin will remain until you delete it, even if you change directions.
|I drop them directly on top of the red ones.|
The drop pin can also help with the location. If you are unsure of which town the cemetery is in the drop pin will show you an address with the town's name.
