News: Garmin unveils the VIRB 360 degree action camera

pocketgpsworld.com
Garmin surprised everyone this week with the announcement of a new member of its action camera line-up.

The VIRB 360 is a rugged, waterproof, 360-degree action camera capable of 5.7k/30fps and an astounding 4k spherical stabilisation. The VIRB 360 specs beat it's nearest competitor, the long awaited and widely praised Nikon KeyMission 360, hands down.

It's an impressive first outing and will set the standard that others now have to beat but it's no bargain, a list price of $800USD is more than double that of the Nikon.

Spec highlights are GPS (GPS & GLONASS naturally) and a raft of sensors including barometer and altimeter that allow you to create customisable G-Metrix overlays onto captured video in 36-degree augmented reality. You can also pair compatible Garmin sensors to add more data.

VIRB 360 also supports voice commands, "OK Garmin, start recording" or "remember that" to tag a specific moment. You can even change recording modes or power the camera down. Live streaming to YouTube and Facebook is there. And it is waterproof down to 10 meters.

If you're an action junkie then this will surely be the must have 360-camera of 2017.

According to the research by Confused.com, 210,538 drivers have been caught speeding on smart motorways in the UK. This is since they were first installed in 2013 and equates to a possible 526 million in fines.

News: Japan considers expansion of QZSS system as GPS backup

pocketgpsworld.com
Japan's domestic navigation system, the Quasi-Zenith Satellite System (QZSS), was designed as GPS augmentation system allowing for centimetre level accuracy when supplementing existing GPS data.

The network was designed to have four satellites in orbit, one is already aloft and three more are scheduled for launch this year ahead of the system going live in 2018.

But now Japan is considering adding three more satellites to permit the QZSS system to operate as an independent regional GPS service for Japan and provide a back-up reducing their reliance on GPS.

Reviews: Reviewed: AlcoSense Excel Breathalyser

Reviewed: AlcoSense Excel Breathalyser


Driving whilst impaired through alcohol is now almost universally regarded as anti-social. Long gone are the days when it was acceptable to drive to the pub, down a skin full and then drive home again. The first blood alcohol limit for drivers was introduced in January 1966 and although numerous campaigns have reduced the number of drink driving casualties the previous steady decline has changed to an increase in recent years with statistics showing a large rise due to "morning after" driving offences.

And that's where I see alcohol breathalysers devices such as those manufactured by AlcoSense that I am reviewing here come into play
