tiny GPS tracker, too cool

http://www.coolest-gadgets.com/20060...le-gps-tracker

It's tiny, so it goes in your (or someone else's, muahahaha) saddle bag or camelbak or pocket. Then you upload the data and plot it with Google Earth. It's sweetness

The self-inflating flash drive on that site is more fun and it will not get you shot or arrested.

it is cool but for that amount you can buy a gps unit that has a screen and maps and current information(speed ,distance, avg. ) and you dont have to wait till you get home

GPS has come along way, lot of my professor's have been using it for a long time, and back when they first started to, getting GPS points meant carry a large amoutn of equipment (i've seen pictures of them using it), just to get static points. This does more and can attach to your key chain, I think its definitly cool.
