Re: EM1 WiFi Controller App

As above - until recent EU sponsored changes made it unnecessary - I disabled Mobile Data Roaming when ever I left the country.
Roaming is using a foreign network when abroad and was traditionally very expensive - it's now included in your regular usage in the EU.
There are fixed day rate options in other places that let you use what you need for a set amount - I used it in the USA. No idea about Africa though.
It might be worth buying a PAYG sim locally if you need data and WiFi isn't available but you'd need to ensure your handset is unlocked by your current provider before you go.

WiFi still works fine when it's available.

You can simply disable all mobile data from the lock screen in iOS11 - green icon here - took me ages to find out what that was for

You can also set which apps are able to use mobile data at any time as well as control Mobile Roaming etc in this screen in "Settings"

FWIW I found the GPS logging from OIShare really useful on a recent road trip to France. I wrote a post on it on another forum I use...
