Thanks. I looked it up - sound like transflective technology has (ironically) disappeared. There are lots of great apps I'd love to use, but alas on a bright day my Samsung screen looks like the proverbial black cat in a coal bin at midnight. Oh well, I'll have to be content to have more time to actually LOOK where I'm flying, enjoy the scenery and be a more alert and safer pilot, I guess.

She sees my real-time location in Google Satellite View and can follow my every move. When I land it automatically transmits turn-by-turn driving directions to her, then I can track her progress as she drives to pick me up. It's rendered all other communication and retrieval systems obsolete.
