Hi Steven,



until now it is „my“ system and the proposal is to be OGC’s starting with r100 www.volksnav.de/r100, so the consumer would have one more option. At the moment the promoters of squared systems are impeding an objective discussion but I’m sure the best system will overcome such resistance.

Your opening words encapsulate a problem for me (at least) “my system” - this is an open source community.

Hi Jonathan,


my system isn’t easy to understand if you try to understand all 25 benefits at once. 

Let’s describe only the location code benefit: the codes consist on hours, minutes and radius, nothing else. It was made for children, so please try to think like a child.


Instead of molesting your customers with an address like:      


Howbery Park, Wallingford Oxfordshire, OX10 8BA,


you could indicate this:   <http://www.volksnav.de/HRwallingford> www.volksnav.de/HRwallingford


193 blocks of houses from Oxford Carfax tower in direction m4, 

respectively 93 blocks later than m4.


The width of a sector is radius/2 (!), so you’re close to the sector m5.


Besides: VolksNav is something like the military ro-theta navigation.
