Adventures with the GPS Pro: Asia Pacific in 88 Days
One of our customers, Ryo Akasaka, just got home from an amazing 88 day trip thru Asia Pacific and posted all the details on his site. The photos (low res, high res) are simply amazing. And you can read more about Ryo's important research into Oreo cookies in each country along his route, including the wrappers, knock-offs, ingredients, and manufacturers. Somebody's got to do it!
Ryo used the GPS Pro to track the entire trip (over 30,000 miles!), and his site allows you to drill down into the various locations, time periods, and even methods of travel (Flight, Train, Boat) to see the raw GPS data he captured.
This is EXACTLY the type of trip that we had in mind when designing the data logging features of the GPS Pro. The long battery life (>32 hrs), huge memory capacity (>100hrs) and rugged enclosure mean it won't let you down during the trip. And once you return home, all the data can be exported easily for building maps, geo-tagging photos, etc.
We can't wait to see where Ryo goes next with his Bad Elf!

GPS receiver capabilities range from survey grade (centimeter level accuracy) to consumer grade (~5-meter level accuracy). Of course, this demands a cost-benefit tradeoff ranging from free to prohibitively expensive for most educational institutions. Between these two extremes lies mapping grade GPS, which delivers 1 meter accuracy.
