Our fourteenth beta show talks about OpenStreetMaps. We suggested listeners interested in becoming involved in the community check out their Beginners' guide and video tutorials. For those looking to install OSM on their GPSRs, they have a couple pages for Garmin and Magellan users. Listeners looking for more on OpenStreetMaps might also want to download episode 245 of the Geocaching Podcast.

Nighthawk700 recommended OpenCaching North America users on Android check out the Columbus app. A comment from rDLr also brought up the topic of location mapping of WiFi hotspots and Google's Opt-Out (_nomap)
