The Google Earth store just came out with a fancier version of their Trackstick device, which allows users to record location and other variables in a format that is easily imported into Google Earth. The Super Trackstick GPS Tracking System has 4MB of rewritable memory (as opposed to the Trackstick II’s 1MB) and built-in mounting magnets so you can slap it on the hood of your car. But we guess the most popular use would be for blueliners exploring new trout streams, or for saltwater fly fishers who want to keep a log of their movements as they find new fishing spots. Of course, tracking your teenager’s driving habits is not a far reach either. There are a bunch of other devices in the Google store with similar capabilities, not all of them quite so pricey.
