Ever since the day I got the i-gotU USB Travel Logger, I have taken it almost everywhere with me but not just as fun, I just wanted to test its accuracy because I love finding faults in electronics and basically anything that requires power to work. Unfortunately I was unsuccessful, thumbs up to Mobile Action for making the world’s smallest and most energy-efficient GPS logger plus it really works.
What I like About it?
It has a compact inconspicuous design which makes it easy to bring it just about anywhere with you. I see on the package where it is strapped on to a bike, but unfortunately I don’t have a bike at this time but I must try that. It weighs a mere 20g and according to what the package says, it has a built-in SiRF StarIII low-power chipset and a built-in GPS patch antenna inside.
Easy Setup and Use
Nobody like to encounter confusing equipments, with the i-gotU Travel Logger its nothing of that sort, it comes with a single button and its charging port. The one button its use to turn the device on and off, it automatically logs your location and maps your photos.
The Setup process is so simple but guess what I didn’t read the instructions, male ego at work. I simple charged the device through the USB port on my PC, then when outside and pressed and held the big white button for approximately 2 seconds and that was it.
My first test trip with the i-gotU GT-120 USB GPS Travel Logger
Most GPS Logger works basically the same, they store a latitude and longitude log file as you travel and that’s just what the i-gotU logger does and then displays your travel routes on a 3D map when the device is connected to a PC with the required software. The i-gotU is compatible with @trip (which comes on a CD in the package + a blog software for all camera and camera phone users), Flickr, Picasa, Google Earth and Maps.
If you are worrying about power, the built-in 230mAh Lithium-ion battery gives approximately 20 hours of usage plus there are 2 LED indicators that will notify you when it is time to re-charge.
If you want to get the i-gotU GPS travel logger, it is available on Amazon for a retail price of $69.95
