We don't usually promote products on Birding-Aus, but here is somethign that I'm sure a lot of birders will want to know about:

The Trackstick is a smallish device that records GPS data when you are on the move. It's about the size of the larger Mp3 player / USB memory stick combos, runs on a couple of AAA batteries and has enough onboard memory to track your movements for several weeks. It integrates fully with Google Earth - so you can carry it around on a trip, mark where you've seen key species, and upload the info to your own Google Earth map when you get home. IT works with Google Maps, MapQuest and VirtualEarth.

Yes, lots of birders do this already with sophisticated GPS handheld devices. But the Trackstick seems to be a bit of a jump ahead in terms of ease of use, size, and integration with 3D mapping software. It's just that I'm not game to look at the prices because I know I want one ....
