Keychain GPS
GPSGlobal Positioning System. Satellite based tracking device, that uses several satellites to position your exact location to within a few yards/meters accuracy. technology is getting smaller and smaller. It's now all centered around a single computer chip, so you can see them in watches, small blocks used for anti-theft alarms, etc. Here's a GPS fitted into a keychain.

The GPS/Keychain also has built-in BluetoothAn industrial specification for wireless personal area networks (PANs). Bluetooth provides a way to connect and exchange information between devices such as mobile phones, laptops, PCs, printers, digital cameras, and video game consoles over a secure, globally unlicensed short-range radio frequency. , so it can transmit the GPS information to, for example, a PDAPersonal Digital Assistant - a small portable Personal Computer, e.g. Blackberry, Palm, or Windows Mobile.

Quite handy, since you don't need to remember to take the GPS with you when you leave your motorcycle, since you'll obviously take the keys with you.

The onboard battery will last 9 hours. So if you go on a ride, and want to capture where you've been, take along a Bluetooth equipped device (like a PDA) and capture your ride. Then later at home, map it out of Google Earth Open link in a new window. Or use your PDA to display the route you need to take.

What would really be handy, is if you forget your keychain, and you could somehow see where you left it on Google Maps Open link in a new window...

Price: US$ 129.95 (ex taxes)
