GPS Navigation upgrade

As part of my Extreme Northern Loop tour, I have upgraded my GPS Tracking system which will aid me on this journey.

from a small 3.2″ Alcatel to a 7″ Bad Ass!




Bad Ass

My new GPS is a 7″ ZTE Android Gingerbread tablet 3G phone with a 3700 mah battery capacity.

It currently carries Navitel (OSM), Navdroyd (online/offline) and Google Maps (online).

Gettin’ ready… and excited πŸ˜‰
