Long story ... I used my GPS on the first day while I was wandering around. I just noted down a few waypoints. Then when I tried to record some tracks, the software wasn't working (I'm using Mobile Trail Explorer, and had just upgraded). I fiddled around with this for a few hours, and then my GPS ran out of battery. And of course, I hadn't brought the charging cord with me -- it was sitting on the table when I got home.
So, not very successful, but I put a few more places on the map at Bantayan.
