Geek Shaykh - Travel Gadgets

Issue 68 May 2010

Going out into the wild this month? Don’t get stuck in the mud. Robi Chowdhury selects a range of gadgets suited for your intrepid adventures.


Britain is home to a range of idyllic and remote destinations that are perfect for exploring. They are also perfect for getting completely lost in. So whether your hiking in Ben Nevis, sailing round the Isle of Wight or rambling in the Outer Hebrides, we  have a gadget that could be the perfect solution.
The Spot GPS is a fantastic piece of equipment that allows you to be traced almost anywhere in the world. Initially developed as a rescue device, the Spot GPS can be used by pressing a button that sends an email (or a text message) to a friend or a family member to let them know that you are safe. It then locates your current position on Google Maps to show your loved ones where you are.
Of course, it wouldn’t be much of a rescue device if there was no way to reach emergency services in the event of trouble. By subscribing to a yearly service (for approximately £87 a year), you’ll be able to send critical and non-critical distress signals that will be transmitted to local Spot Teams. The Spot GPS is also capable of creating waypoints and allows others to track your progress online.
