State of the Map Philippines 2013

we are two totally blind guys who are probably the first users of
gps technology here in the philippines.
we already travelled from commonwealth to binondo using our gps
receivers and our talking cellphones and we arrived safely.
that's why we would like to meet with you so we can ask technical
info from you to improve our navigating.
kindly honor our request because we would like also to be active
contributors to what you are doing in mapping the philippines, well
perhaps to start a new map department for blind travelers.
i typed this letter using a screenreader with speech software,
forgive the non capitalization of beginning letters so i can type
fast to go with my flow of thought.
god bless you and thank you in advance for your precious time with

i went back to cabagan, isabela after 15 years and got nostalgic
marking the pois on a motorbike with cousin philip!
i live ecopark and did gps marking too.
quite a good coverage, i think, but need to go back for some that i
hope this will benefit gps users.
