    Blimey, you'd think the authorities would have this covered in security protocols?

    yes. Barmy isn't it?

    It's only one, er, step, away from folk in secure places littering social media with in-situ-selfies.

    Ha ha, Just seen this when browsing the Beeb news site. Certainly makes you think. Not just bike thieves and stalkers that can use the data I guess.....

    I think that IS and the Taliban have a fair idea of where the US bases are.

    I think its being over egged to give the media something to crow about. Google Earth would reveal more useful info. Knowing where squaddies go for a jog at Catterick or Bagram isn't terribly useful to a bad person.

    What wouldn't be clever though is to go on patrol with it running!

    Correct. Finally somebody with rational thought.

    I can safely say that is the first time I've ever been accused of that! :laugh:

    We didn't have Strava when I was a kid. We had to make do with massive signs by the side of the road reading "Welcome to Aldershot. Home of the British Army."

    A bit of activity on the private roads in the area, and round the base.

    From my quick read of one of the sources of story I thought some were using it when on patrol within the camp.

    And as for the jogging, that could be useful to some of the nut jobs around these days.

    I'd like to know what their secret is. I can't get STRAVA on my iPhone to actually track me, the last couple of days.

    I arrive at the end of my journey, to find I have travelled in a dead straight line for 0 miles. :angry:

    Time to buy a Tom tom watch or a wahoo bolt then. Having accuracy is crucial when you’re a Strava athlete.

    Don't worry. The NSA is tracking you. They've got all your data....
