I know what you did last summer

The system can be set to take a fix from every five seconds to every 15 minutes so it's possible to get far more than 80 hours active use out of a charge, while a built-in vibration sensor puts the unit into a power saving mode when at rest.

Travelling companion?

The 4GB of built-in storage should be more than enough for most users – a nine hour record session spent driving hither and thither continually used up only 4 per cent of the available space. A maximum of 16,000 waypoints can be stored before you need to start deleting data. The Trackstick desktop management software is Windows only, but you can use it to geotag photographs by matching GPS locations and picture time codes.

At £220 the Trackstick Mini isn't cheap, so you need to make sure a smartphone GPS tracking app won't answer your needs. But if it doesn't and you drive for a living and need to keep track of distances and times, spend a lot of time tramping through the great outdoors or are simply paranoid about what the missus is up to when she says she is at her book club or how fast young Jimmy is driving his car, it could justify the outlay. ®
