SureShot GPS - New Golf Specific GPS device hits the market

A new golf specific GPS device has hit the market and soon the links called the Sureshot GPS. It's an Australian unit, so it may not hit your pro shop any time soon, but it's an interesting first step in the field that is sure to expand. The unit can hold data for about 10 courses and is able to download course data over the internet.

Review: Gizmondo lacks value - no games

The AP has released a story all over the earth (really, check the number of papers that picked this one up), that pans the Gizmondo console due primarily to the lack of good games. They say that the Gizmondo "will initially have 14 games to choose from -- most all of them uniformly terrible." The console that has a GPS receiver in it, as well as mobile phone technology allows for a very broad array of capabilities: a VGA digital camera, GPRS cellular wireless networking for text and multimedia messaging ( no voice capability) and a 400-megahertz ARM processor running on a customized version of Microsoft's Windows CE operating system.

Gizmodo thief tracked down by GPS

While you may have thought that a GPS receiver in a handheld gaming console was stupid, or at best novel and potentially useful, Gizmodo insists that is has value now. According to Gizmodo, the GPS receiver helped track down a thief from their London store. Apparently, the story goes that on 18th September, a twenty-something man stole one of the consoles from the company's Regent Street. Gizmondo then tracked his position using GPS and sent him a text message (see inset) which led to the handheld being quietly returned the same day.

GPS Review: Another Great Review for TomTom GO 300

TomTom doesn't have nearly the market force that Garmin and Magellan have here in the US, but that may not be for long, as the TomTom GO 300 and its sibling the TomTom GO 700, get great review after great review. Here at the GPS Lodge, we have a TomTom GO 300 coming for review in a couple of weeks, and are excited to get our hands on it to give it a try. In the meantime, PC Mag has taken a look at the TomTom GO 300 and has awarded it the Editor's Choice. The car gps segment is hot right now, and coming into the holiday season, I would imagine that the market for these will heat up even more.

GPS Review: TomTom GO 300

The TomTom GO 300 is a well regarded automotive GPS navigation device that has gotten accolades in the US and in Europe for its design and its functionality. Recently AOL's MapQuest selected TomTom and the TomTom GO 300 for a rebranding under the MapQuest name (see our article from September 28th), with Austin Klahn CTO of MapQuest saying, "We believe [TomTom] offers the latest technology and the best consumer experience in personal navigation devices in the marketplace today." Pretty big vote of confidence there.
