There are a few iPhone,
Android & iPad apps around that are very handy when camping. I recently came across
one that I thought would be very helpful when setting up camp,
especially for the 21st century camper trailer owner.
Don't you hate it when you get into camp & you have no clue where
north is or in particular where the sun rises & sets, so you can't make
the best possible choice for a little afternoon shade in
summer or perhaps where to set up your solar panel to maximise the sun
Neil Harper is a software developer from Wollongong & also a keen camper
trailer owner with a Pioneer Prospector towed by a Toyota FJ Cruiser. He
has solved a problem he had in working out which direction to camp &
also to level the camper at the same time with the development of a
phone app he named CampAspect.
CampAspect is a tool to help you in choosing the right aspect of your
campsite. It shows you where the sun rises and sets relative to a
compass bearing of your location, so that you can orient your awning or living
area to the conditions.
It also incorporates a bubble level. Once you have parked the camper in the direction
that best suit your needs, just change over to the level tool
& place it on the draw bar.
CampAspect also allows you to post the details of your camp on facebook
& can be set up to keep you informed of local weather information.
