Navigating with a phone

A walk (8.5 miles) through 3 commons was not quite a disaster but wasn’t without problems.

I’ve come to rely on my mobile phone and the OS Maps app for navigation. On long walks I always take a battery pack to recharge the phone if necessary, but today I forget the charging cable. Half way through the walk the battery had dropped to 10% and I risked getting lost in the multitude of paths. So I decided to abort the rest of my planned route and make a hurried return to the start point.

I also dropped the phone and cracked the case – so not the happiest of walks.
