I have a motorhome and travel about quite a bit I want to record my journeys, mileage, interesting camping sites etc and am looking for a good way of doing it.
I have a stand alone tom tom, tom tom on my iphone and the iphone itself geotags photos. (have a pc and laptop too)
Am thinking of a igotu gps tracker.
Anyone got any good solutions?
Many thanks in advance
Lee

A GPS datalogger is a good start. You'll need to consider how many datapoints your logger can store before it is full. At a guess you'll want one that will last at least the length of a days driving?

You could always use your iPhone if it's connected to a car charger? There are many apps that will log your route, MotionX is a good one for example.

Or if you wanted another sat-nav, then many of the Garmins and the latest TomTom Rider models support trip logs and "breadcrumb" trails.

iGotU is not bad. You should also consider the Columbus V900 - best datalogger ever! We have reviewed them both on the site, let me know if you need the links.

If you are feeling confident, you could always use your existing TomTom (depending upon model) by installing TripMaster on it:- http://www.webazar.org/tomtom/tripmaster.php?lang=uk. This program save your routes according to your settings.

You can already save your favorite campsites/locations/etc. into a custom POI folder on your TomTom (again, depending upon model).
