I am amazed by this GPS locator that you install on your laptop or pocket pc. We've bought the Canada - USA version which comes with this receiver that looks just like a processor but doesn't need a fan and even turns blue when you plug it into the USB port. It's really sweet. I was trying the program at my house first just to know how it worked and while I was moving the receiver with my hand it was telling me the speed I was moving it at. It also recognized in like a second what my position in the world was. I haven't investigated all its features, but some of them are:
GPS pane, which tells you what direction you are heading towards, the speed you are going and lets you re calculate your driving directions based on the point you are at if needed. So, in case you got lost, which is so imposssible with this incredible thingy, you can ask the program to trace you a new route based on the point you are in the earth. You don't need a precise location for departure, you do need a destination though, lol, the program DOES NOT read your mind, again, the program DOES NOT read your mind. That's a feature they are working on to include in its 2007 version.
Directions pane, which tells you precisely how many mts, kms and what kind of turns you need to make into which direction and on what road. If you tell the program at what time you are leaving for the trip, after how long you take a break and so on it also tells you at what time you will be arriving to destination. I don't know what speed it calculates it based on though, I haven't found that feature yet.
Options, it allows you to tell the program how many kms per galon, litre, etc you can make on road and street so it tells you where your stops will be at and it can warn you when your tank reaches a certain level of gas. Read more ›
