My second attempt at GeoTracking turned out much better. I mapped my usual bike route, with a bit more attention to detail. The addition of waypoints helps a lot.
It’s called the Punisher due to the extreme hills on the route.
I’m having problems putting it directly in the blog, but here is the map on a stand alone page. Pretty cool. The missing parts are where I had turned off the gps unit momentarily or put it in a pocket and it lost signal.
The combination of spring break and tax time has made the past few days excruciatingly dull. Most of the people I work with are out out of town, the rest are doing taxes (like me) and that’s thrown all organization out of whack, which is bad. I’m in the odd position of not having anything pressing going on, and no work related stuff to talk about, which happens very rarely. The combination has made me moody the past three days.
In other news, I did get the Garmin Street Pilot in today, I’m about to take it on it’s first test ride. We’ll see how it goes.
I got the Garmin StreetPilot I3 for a good deal on E-bay. A detailed product review will be here shortly after I get it.
Specifically, the Garmin Street Pilot I3. I think I’ll have use for it on a project later this year. Amazon has it for $299 as well.
- Navicore Personal GPS – it wirelessly turns your bluetooth phone in to a GPS device. Very cool, but it seems to only be available in Europe, though I imagine that will change soon. HT: Gizmodo.
- 10 Million Candlepower flashlight – with built in recharging! And only $49 bucks too. There’s a 15 million candlepower for sale too.
- The Pain Ray – Not really a gadget, but cool in a creepy way. It uses microwaves to heat nerve endings. Supposedly for security and crowd control.
