I had hoped to write a feature comparing the latest GPS travel logging devices that are becoming popular in schools but sadly, one of the main contenders, the Trackstick, appears to be no longer available in the UK. However, Data Harvest came to my rescue with its i-gotU GT120 GPS Travel Logger which must be the smallest of these devices, weighing in at just 21 grammes and measuring a diminutive 44.5mm x 28.5mm x 13mm!
What is a travel logger? Let me explain. These devices are handheld GPS satellite receivers and loggers. They can automatically take a GPS reading and remember it. So if you’re out on a hike for example, or a school field trip (or, in my case, walking the dog), as long as the logger has clear access to the sky it will happily store all the GPS readings that will record your journey until you tell it to stop.
