Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on October 28th, 2009

Not a good day to be TomTom and GarminLooks like both TomTom and Garmin might be having a bit of a bad day to put it mildly, thanks to the announcement of Google Maps Navigation. As the graph shows, things are not looking good. Nope. Not at all.

GPS makers can at least take some comfort in the fact that the new Google Maps Navigation is available on Android 2.0 at the moment, which requires you to have a specific phone to download the maps real time. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

phototrackrmini-sbOne of the things that I have never felt compelled to do is geotag images that I take with my digital camera. I am not a big world traveler and if I take pictures, they are usually within a 30-mile radius of my home and I can remember where they were taken.

If you like to geotag your images GiSTEQ has announce a new device called the PhotoTrackr Mini DPL900 that is smaller and faster than the original PhotoTrackr. The new device is about the size of a flash drive and adds new software features to the mix.

Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on October 19th, 2009

GPS Puzzle Box will only opens in a specific locationSay you’re a bad guy. A villain. The Joker maybe. You want to taunt Batman, but you need a new gimmick. Aha. Tell Batboy that there’s a bomb in this GPS Puzzle Box that will go off in exactly one hour. But here’s the catch Batbrain, you can only disable it by opening the box. And the box will only open at a specific location. So after Batman gets the box and zips to the location in the nick of time, he’s able to open the box. Inside he finds not a bomb, but a pop-up Joker face. Meanwhile, you’ve been gassing Gotham city, which is now yours.

Well, you could use this Puzzle box like that. It was built as a wedding gift by Mikal Hart. It only opens when it’s in a specific location, and the puzzle involves discovering just where that location is. There’s a button and an LCD display on the lid. When you press the button, the display shows you how far, in kilometers, you are from the goal location. It doesn’t give you directions, so you need to triangulate and you can only press the button 50 times.
