yuga more than a year ago mentioned on his blog GPS was useless in the
no i didn't take it up with him...he still doesn't know waypoints then and
was really well informed about GPS
except those units loaned/demoed to him

I sometimes use wikimapia to get the coordinates but i have to double check
with others if absent on OSM.
the watchtower in Luna, La Union I first found on wikimapia (then untagged),
then BING relased the high-res imagery of the place :P

i usually search the keyword then just add wikimapia to my search query if
i'm too lazy to add site:wikimapia.org
that is one thing i can't do on OSM (or i don't know how)
