Brunton AtlasMNS GPS

Brunton's portable Atlas MNS is unusual for a GPS unit in that it has dual processors, which allows it to not only track your position, but to take barometer readings and create a weather forecast for the next 12 hours. It can also rememeber the weather of the last 36 hours, and has atlas, altimeter, and digital compass functions. The unit's internal memory can be supplemented by external SD and MMC cards, and supports up to 10 routes, 100 plot trails, and 1,000 waypoints and 1,000 event markers. Power is supplied by two AA batteries and will last up to two weeks in compass mode, but drops to 12 hours in continuous GPS mode. The housing is waterproof and submersible. Brunton is selling the AtlasMNS for $359, but Optics Planet has it for $20 less. [Via NaviGadget]
