Things have really changed in the last few years technology wise. I like to take a lot of pics when I travel on the bike or the Spyder and I like to document my trips to share with others. I just added a new toy that's going to make this much more interactive.

This is a GPS Data Logger. So what to you do with a GPS Data Logger? Well how this works is when I get on the bike and go for a ride this thing will create a track log. As a stop along the way I can do a few different things. Lets say I wanted to mark out all my fuel stops or stops along the way, I could mark waypoints at each location and it would create a route that I could download to my map. What I really bought it for was when I take pictures along the way I can then match up the time stamp on the photos with the GPS data log and it will create a map with push pins so you can see where I stop and took the pics on the map. I don't know why but I just think that's the coolest thing ever.


Here's a look at how the software works. http://www.gisteq.com/MACsoftwaretour.php

My friend Darrel just got his and made a little test map around his block with his data tracker. There's much more info you can add to this but this will give you an idea on how it could be used. If you click on any of the thumbnails below it will show you where the picture was taken on the map.

Anyway this weather really has me PMS'n bad and I can't wait to get out on the road and ride. I now have one more reason to do so.

Greetings!

That's a nice unit. Just make sure that the time setting in your camera is set to match the GPS time reported by the tagger. Otherwise, your pictures can get mis-tagged.
