Gave it another chance It's still not a perfect app, but I tried it some more and it hasn't locked up my phone like the first time. I really wish it wouldn't constantly set itself to turning on lockon, and wouldn't keep GPS on even when scanning is turned off. Still, it's a useful and interesting way to take the pulse of your neighborhood and routes. Give it a shot and upload your results, you might be surprised by how much free Wi-Fi you find.
I can't help but be just a bit excited when driving to a new area to see all the new Hotspots. I hope Google, Skyhook etc are actually using this data to reduce the need to use GPS for a good location. Your phone seeing multiple WiFi networks around you should give you more than a precise enough location for more or less everything except navigation.
War Driving can be fun Almost every time I get into the car. I turn on the Wiggle War Drive program and the phones GPS. I check to see how many new wi-fi and cellphone hot-spots are out there. Be careful it does use the battery power. Make sure you have a car charger in the car with you.
I have 6k entries in my DB. Been using it for a few weeks. Occasionally after an hour drive, with 100+ in my daily DB, it will say "waiting for GPS sync" and wipe out the entire list. How can I stop this from happening? GPS in the phone works fine.
Very good (free) app for seeing wifi ssid's. I have had 0 crashes over the last two months and performance is as good as the day I installed it (because it uses SQLite database). +Free +Free upload to website to see what data you captured OR what everyone captured. +No performance problems as it uses SQLite database. +No crashes (ever) for me
