    Tech tools: Ecco Personal Pocket GPS

    Ciara O'Brien

    I can’t stress how much I need one of these. Have you ever had to search for your car in a car park? Usually when it’s late at night, cold and possibly raining, if this country’s usual weather system has anything to do with it.

    I have. Not fun, and it happens a little too often for my liking, though not often enough that I learn and actually make a note of where my car is next time around.

    But this gadget could cut down on the misery by providing a high-tech trail back to the car.

    The Ecco Personal Pocket GPS Locator is a reverse navigation device, allowing you to lock in a location and guide you back to it safely when you need to return. Follow the arrow on the screen to get back to your original location. The GPS device stores up to three locations, so should you need to find your way home, it will bring you right to the door.

    The device is convenient and portable, just the right size to fit on to a key fob. It recharges from USB and can be used anywhere in the world.
