TrackStick GPS maps progress for computers

TrackStick GPS

GPS mapping is not always about real-time locations. In many cases, users only need to plot an earlier path for security or even simply personal curiosity. The TrackStick GPS drive is designed precisely for these people who have no need for the expense that comes with a real-tme receiver. Although it has only 1MB of onboard storage, the TrackStick can mark its GPS position at regular intervals for several months before it fills up - making it possible to track a long vacation or product shipment through its entire route. An owner can then plug the drive into a USB port to export the results to formats such as Google Earth maps, web pages, or raw comma-separated values. In more advanced formats, the drive's updates can be converted to a visual route instead of simple data points. The manufacturer Telespial Systems asks users to e-mail them for retail information but says the TrackStick is available now.
