    Wow, November 24, 2010
    If you venture out into the wilderness by yourself this is a game changer. You get a full-fledged handheld GPS with maps and imagery plus a satellite communicator that lets you send short messages to friends and loved ones. Change in plans for later return home? Now send a tweet or Facebook post (or email) to let others know when outside sell coverage. Way cool. Loving it.
