Don't Get Lost ~ Get Home
~ The Brunton GPS Will Help You Find Your Way Back ~
My hubby loves the outdoors and his latest favorite activity is kayaking. He bought his own kayak and takes it out in the water here in Rhode Island. He is not super experienced at the sport, so I do get nervous as he takes off in his one-man kayak on his adventures. He did once even mention to me that he was not quite sure where he was, which made me even more nervous. I decided I would find him a tool to use so he won't get lost out at sea.
I found this "Get-Back GPS" from Brunton, and I absolutely love it. Brunton is an outdoors company that handles goods for extreme sports, anything outdoors, hunting, etc. What I loved most about this GPS is that it's small and easy to take with him. There is a cord where he can attach it to his wrist or ankle, or a chain/clip to just attach it to his shorts or jacket.
It also has a nice display and can do many things!
Description from the Brunton.com Site:
Quickly shows the way back to your starting point by the shortest, most direct route. Instead of retracing your steps at the end of a long day, you can head straight home, as the crow flies, always on course. Points directly back to any of three points, adjusting direction as you move, showing the route by arrow and the distance in meters or miles. Can also be used as a digital compass, with or without satellite coverage. Tough, indispensable, and not a toy. Feel comfortable no matter where the adventure takes you, the Get-Back will get you back.
