    Default Best Gadget...

    What would you say is your best gadget that ISNT in daily use? (so that excludes mobile phones etc)... and why is it your best gadget?

    Doesnt have to be electronic

    My best gadget is the Garmin GPSmap 60CSx

    Reason being...

    - Its an electronic portable Ordenance Survey GPS Map for navigation
    - its water resistant to 1 meter so you can use it in the rain
    - it floats if you drop it in the river, provided its not attached to the bike
    - It attaches to my bike, so sat nav is very cool
    - It has a funky screen which is clearer when the sun shines directly on it (not like mobile phone screens)
    - I can upload my route to Google Earth and see where I've been, distance, speed etc... then send the file to my mates
    - I can produce a route on Google Earth and upload it to the Garmin, it then navigates me round the route. Very good for cycling or walking days
    - It saves my neck when I get lost

    The cat flap that locks/unlocks itself to let the cat in via its collar. The stupid thing would always want to go out at stuipd O'clock in the morning or at night, now she just comes and goes as she wants... especially good in the Summer months!

    I have equal love for my Leatherman Wave (had it for years now, wouldn't be without it), My trusty TomTom go 510, my Victorinox Traveller Lite and I really would hate to be separated from my Sony E-reader.
    Sad old gadget freak, me?
