But it's unlikely either system is smart enough to impart that info to an app on a phone wouldn't you think?

Curioser and curioser.

One of the most interesting parts of living in Cheltenham is being mates with / married too the kinds of people who really understand what happens in the apps we all use and taking a look at the very few that they allow onto their devices  Wink

If you have been using your phone or even had it in your hand by your boat, it could have used video or more likely taking snap shots, it will be constantly taking snap shots based on GPS info, will not take shots at same place twice on same day.

Lets just say I ended up deleting alot of these apps for the reasons you have discovered iGRF and strava is all that remains as imperfect as it is.

No idea how Fireblade came up for our man but Iíve had it for years now and although they must get something back to sell on Iíve never noticed any thing obvious.

When you sign up, you have given permission to access everything in your phone and emails, probably looking at you through the camera too. You will soon be getting offers from businesses in your area, they will get a kickback from any you use. Your friends will be bombarded with ads too.
