away from home...

A local neighbor bought some feed for me while he was in Ft. Stockton last week and just got back to the Big Bend. I went to go pick it up from him a couple of days ago. Decided it would be a good chance to try out quickly setting up and running a mission without internet access for my ground station. Mission planner found the rover on the map via its GPS as soon as I connected to it through the telemetry radio. Note: If you plan on starting from a very distant location, you have to "pre-fetch" the area in advance while connected to the internet and save it to a file in order to have good map detail at the new mission location. Mission planner only has the capacity for good zoomed in resolution for selected areas - not all of Google Earth map info. 73,88,73, .07",B
