GPS Enabled Devices
I seem to be becoming GPS enabled in all walks of life these days. It started with a Garmin eTrex that I originally bought to see how fast I could go whilst windsurfing and then started using for geocaching.
Well, as usual at this time of year loads of people decide it is time to get fit and shed some of that Xmas excess, and I’m one of them so I have started running and mountain-biking in an attempt to regain some of my fitness. I thought if I splashed out on a GPS enabled heart-rate monitor to track my progress then I would have to keep at it in order to justify the expense.
It hasn’t arrived yet, but I shall write a little report on it here when I’ve had chance to try it out.
The prices of GPS enabled devices is dropping all the time, already the One XL that I got just a month ago has dropped in price by about 20%. Kind of annoying, but I guess I’ve had a months use out of it and technological gadgets always drop in price pretty quickly. Next on the list of GPS enabled devices will be a handheld with mapping capabilities… Maybe not or a while though!
