Trackstick II & Google Earth: Plot Your Travels Precisely, Follow Your Ex Surreptitiously

Designed specifically for integration with Google Earth, Trackstick II is a GPS device that lets you “keep a satellite scrapbook of all your travels and record your explorations.” With Trackstick II, anglers can mark bountiful catch-spots. Campers can remember how to reach hidden gems. Globe-trekkers can let friends and family follow them as they wander through, for example, Amsterdam’s Red Light District. Um, on second thought…

Powered by 2 AAA batteries, the unit’s 1Mb flash memory can log months of travel histories. Later, Trackstick II’s data can be downloaded to your (Windows-only) computer via USB and viewed on Google Earth’s 3D model of the planet.

Google Earth Store sells the units for $169. However, if you’re creepy, you might want to think about upgrading to the Super Trackstick. With its magnetic mount, you can surreptitiously attach it to that hot barrista’s Vespa and find out what she does when she’s not making your foam froth.
