    iPhone 4S to use for calls in Spain

    Route tracking app (iPhone iOS)

    Hi, I did Camino in 2012 so last year when one of my colleagues was walking it, it was great to see his progress on the big TV at work. He did it by sending his location via Yo app to his friend who manually added his position everyday to Google maps. I tried to find a solution to do it more...

    Lost iPhone 5--near Melide

    My friend lost her black iPhone 5 outside of Melide on July 21. We were taking group pictures outside of the church of Santa Maria, and we think she set it down in order to take the picture for someone else. She went back to look and asked in the church but no one had seen it. I know it's a...

    Using your iPhone

    I will be walking the Camino in May 2016. I will be going my own and looking forward to it. I have got some useful info from the forum. But I am also surprised at the amount of people who can't seem to make a decision for themselves. As to take a phone or not. Who cares!! Just do what is right...
