Sazo Mobile Phone GPS

Sazo1 Did you lose your children or mother in law just the other day? Well, now with this cool little mobile phone you can keep track of them. The Sazo GPS is abou the size of a credit card and comes with a GPS on board. I like the integration of mobile phone and tracking for purposes like this. Granted I don't want to know what my mother in law is doing all the time - but my kids - well I need to know until at least 15 where they are at all times and then at the end of the evening. :-)

GPS vs. WPS? Could Wi-Fi help in the city?

We all know what can happen to a GPS signal in dense tree cover with steep rock walls, well how about the steep concrete canyons of the city? Well the start-up company Skyhook Wireless is launching its product a Wi-Fi positioning system that will be a reference database of over a million public and private Wi-Fi access points that will allow the system to traingulate a position within 20 to 40 meters. They have mapped 25 cities in the US, including NYC, boston, chicago, Los Angeles and San francisco. The company plans to increase the database to include 100 cities by the end of the year.

Garmin StreetPilot C330 - Gadget of the Week

Time magazine has named the popular Garmin Streetpilot C330 their gadget of the week this week. Time really liked it for its ease of use, and its on-board battery that allows you to do navigation planning outside of you car. More and more I think this is a huge deal. I find myself sitting in my house talking about where we are going, and doing the route planning there. Without the battery, I'd be stuck in the garage figuring out where we are going, trying to yell into the house asking which place we were going to. Time also liked the ease of use right out of the box. The Garmin StreetPilot C330 is a step down from the Garmin StreetPilot C340 in the C-series line. When we used the Garmin StreetPilot C340, we loved it, and hated to send it back (see our review).
