GPS lingerie could help geeks find women, but what then?

Posted in GPS by Conner Flynn on January 12th, 2010

GPS lingerie brings with it a whole bunch of ethical issues. You could potentially locate a cheating wife, or use it in an escort service situation where a pimp can keep tabs on his/her girls, or even play weird GPS sex games if that’s your deal.

For better or worse, Lindelucy of Brazil has outted GPS lingerie that lets you keep track of where the wearer is at all times. Not what they are doing sadly for voyeurs. We shouldn’t worry about the ethical issues that much. The lingerie will be taken off in a matter of minutes.

Garmin unveils ecoRoute hd device for nav units

Posted in Garmin by Shane McGlaun on January 6th, 2010

If you have ever had to get your car worked on at the shop or have looked under the dash by the drivers legs you may have noticed the little port on your computer controlled car. That Port is the OBD II port and it allows the shop to see any errors or warnings that the car’s computer has recorded.

That same port can be used by the driver to glean data about their ride if they have the right equipment. Garmin has announced a cool new device called the ecoRoute hd that plugs into that OBD II port and wirelessly sends information about your car to compatible Garmin GPS units.
