Without a doubt, the GPS system is one of the best things that mankind has ever developed, primarily due to the fact that it allows people to navigate a lot easier than before. I mean, since the appearance of GPS-enabled navigators, drivers find it a lot easier to reach their desired destinations, the most advanced products of this type available on the market also providing ways for them to route around traffic jams, accident sites, etc.
However, PNDs or personal navigation devices are by no means the only type of GPS devices out there. No, in fact, the GPS system can be used for tracking any object in motion, as long as it's located outside (is able to tap into the signals transmitted by the GPS satellites), or for taking geo-tagged photos, name digital pictures to which a set of precise geographical coordinates have been associated.
The two functions mentioned above represent the area of expertise of the device we've recently had the chance of testing, namely the i-gotU GT-120 USB GPS Travel Logger, developed by Mobile Action, a tiny device that looks quite innocent at a first sight, but which is actually able to carry out a lot of functions, with the help of the very interesting associate software application.
Hence, one can employ this GPS travel logger for recording their journeys and then display them onto Google Maps or Google Earth (since the software provides seamless integration with the aforementioned applications), create a blog of their journeys and even compliment the displayed roadmap with some photos, via the special geo-tagging feature. Of course, the device can be used for other purposes as well, such as property tracking, plus for surveillance activities (such as keeping tabs on one's kids/spouse, etc.).
And all of this can be done in a fast and easy manner, by simply connecting the device to one's USB port and then running the tripPC application developed by Mobile Action.
