Trackstick - An inexpensive GPS Track Recorder Hello, My name is Dave, and I'm a Farkleholic. Hi Dave! You may remember that I procured a Star-Traxx Transceiver before Ride About 2007 so I could post my daily route tracks and so those who are interested could follow along my route. The Star-Traxx system is Top Drawer all the way, but a little on the expensive side to procure and requires a subscription to their service. Being the Techno-Farkleholic by nature, I'm always on the lookout for Cool, Functional Farkles (Accessories). To this end, may I present you the Super TrackStick GPS Logger. This is a powerful, functional and relatively inexpensive GPS Track Recorder on steroids. Don't let it's 4 1/2 X 1 1/4 X 3/4 fool you, it has 2.5 meter horizontal accuracy and 4Mb flash memory records months of location histories. Powered by Two "AAA" batteries, it incorporates integrated Vibration Detector for ultra long battery life. (4 weeks typical) Beside recording all of the typical GPS Data it has a built in temperature recorder. (-10°C / +14°F to +60°C/140°F +/- 1°C) With the software you download from the manufactures site the TrackStick is Integrated directly into Google EarthTM for worldwide use. While these devices were developed for and are in use by Law Enforcement, the general public also has access to them and have found many uses for the technology. I suggest that this is the perfect solution for those of us that enjoy long distance riding and want the rides documented in such a way that it's easy to share the routes with others via the Internet. The Application Software you download from www.TrackStick.com includes the appropriate USB Drivers and the TrackStick Manager software allows full control of the device with the ability to download tracks, clear the internal memory and export the track log data into several formats such as Google Earth Fly-through, timeline and pushpins; Rich Text Format, Comma Separated Value, GPS Exchange Format and HTML . This photo shows the bits & pieces of the Super TrackStick. Here is a link to an HTML track log that interfaces with Google Earth. This is a Google Earth formatted file. Here is a GPS Exchange Format of the above track. Here is a link to the Product PDF, and Here is where I purchased the TrackStick. When the TrackStick arrived today via Farkle Fairy (Big Brown Truck), I opened the box, installed the batteries, switched on the unit and tossed it in the tank bag of the R1200GS and took a short Test Ride After the ride I plugged the TrackStick into a USB port of my laptop after downloading and installing the software. Click a button and the data is downloaded to the application where you can view the data in raw format or rendered on Google Maps, Google Earth and others. Pros: Small, Light weight, powerful capabilities and inexpensive. Cons: None found as of yet.
