Re: [gpsstash] GPS Database

im not sure it involved using a GPS on your pda to find the toilets, im sure you could though...

Compiling a Database of Australian Public Toilets

Of all the great reasons to own a GPS receiver, this may well be one of
the best. An Australian company is compiling a geographical database of
all 13,000 public toilets in that nation. The project grew from a
collaboration between the Australian Minister for Aged Care and the
Continence Foundation of Australia. Clearly, people with a medical
condition will be grateful for the information, but the project stands on
its own merits as a genuine public service. While the database is not yet
complete, we figured publicizing the effort might spur similar projects
in other places around the world. From there it's only a short step to
the traveler's nirvana of a wireless PDA and on-demand directions to the
nearest public convenience. Wired has more details.
