This product is finally out — the Trackstick II for 180$. It’s a small cheap GPS stick which can constantly track it’s location down to 15 meters anywhere in the world and store months of data using very little power. You can then map that data using Google earth to see your path/time.
I’d love this for traveling, hiking and snowboarding. Being able to track each days up/downs would be very fun. I’ve seen people already doing this and it’s awesome. Provides a great record of all your adventures!
