G PS receivers are strongly on the rise. Since the year 2000, consumers are able to purchase a GPS (Global Positioning System) receiver with high precision. In addition to tracking GPS coordinates, 'geotagging' is also becoming general knowledge.

i-gotU GPS system review

Without monitor and featuring only one operating element, it is difficult to pack many functions onto the device. And if a manufacturer does equip a device like this with many functions, it is still questionable if this comes at the cost of the user-friendliness.

These lights indicate whether or not the GPS receiver is activated, tracking the route and storing data.

The i-gotU GT-100 GPS navigation receiver comes included with a so-called USB GPS data logger, a kind of cradle to connect the i-gotU with the computer and recharge it at the same time. The cradle's design is as neat as that of the GPS receiver itself, and the similarity with Apple products only becomes stronger when the i-gotU is placed inside the cradle.

The i-gotU is a handy GPS device for tracking routes and automatically adding geographic (GPS) information to captured pictures en route (so-called geotagging of pictures). By means of the included software, the route and pictures are easily projected onto Google Earth, among other things. Moreover, it allows for sharing pictures through popular web sites such as Picassa and Flickr. How well the i-gotU GPS travel logger performed in practice, can be read in the following GPS system review.
