You don't need GPS for finding folks at Dayton
Unless you are lost and cannot read a map.
I have prepared 3 maps of the Dayton Buildings and Flea Market
area that have LAT/LONG coordinates on them. Just manually
enter your coordinates for your space or booth or present
location into your D7 and then your radio will tell you which
direction and how far anyone else is...
Indoors, the maps work fine (GPS doesn't). Even at 60 foot
resolution, there are 75 discrete locations inside. In the flea
market, there ar 650 sets of coordinates to help you find
anyone. It also helps if you key in your space or booth number
into your text for the final few feet...
To find someone, enter your manual position into your D7, then
your radio will tell you which direction and how far away they
are! Or look at their coordinates on the these gridded maps:
