"Whenever I get into a cab now, I launch GPS Pal.
It tracks and logs the route the cabbie is taking me in real time, using satellite tracking.
I can watch it as we go (so that if itís clear weíre taking a weird route, I can ask them whatís going on) plus it will log the route the driver takes so that Iíve got proof to complain to the cab company if Iíve been ripped off.
You can get it for iPhone or Android."

SticknFind : Bluetooth Tracker to Stick Anywhere

SticknFind : Bluetooth Tracker to Stick Anywhere
[NOT GPS .. only shortrange]
The Radar Screen displays all your devices within range.
You can tap the Sticker on the radar screen and decide if you would like it to Buzz, Flash the lights or do both.
Of course, because we don't really know direction, the radar Screen can only be used to approximate the distance of the Stick-N-Find to your phone, but not direction.
Stick-N-Find Stickers have a Range of about 100 Feet, with a Battery that lasts for over a year. The Stick-n-Find uses a standard watch battery, so it is easy to replace the battery.

GPS and Geocaching Guide for Educators
http://www.alicechristie.org/geocaching/index.html
Dr. Alice Christie's GPS and Geocaching Guide for Educators
Technology is an integral and growing part of daily living in the twenty-first century. The challenge, then, for teachers, is to use technology effectively in classrooms to help students take ownership for learning and develop the practical and critical thinking skills necessary to better understand the world around them.
To meet this challenge, teachers can use an emerging technology tool, GPS receivers, and an emerging GPS-based activity, geocaching, to transform their classrooms from teacher-centered environments to exciting, empowering, exploratory environments that focus on student engagement in the learning process.

EduScapes : geocaching with Kids
Although some parents and teachers are setting up special geocaches for scout groups and classes, you don't need a special geocache for children. The key is to plan ahead and think about activities that will interest and motivate children and young adults. For example, you might do a geocache in the spring or summer and bring along a wildflower guide.

What is a Travel Bug?
http://www.geocaching.com/track/travelbugfaq.aspx
What is a Travel Bug?
Simply put, a (Groundspeak) Travel Bug is a trackable tag that you attach to an item.
This allows you to track your item on Geocaching.com. The item becomes a hitchhiker that is carried from cache to cache (or person to person) in the real world and you can follow its progress online.
Each Travel Bug has its own unique tracking number stamped on it. This tracking number is used as proof by the user that they found the item. It also doubles as a way for the user to locate the personal web page for the Travel Bug.
Travel Bug Trackables are tracked with the help of users who go online and 'grab' them from caches, or receive them from users.
The idea is by picking up and dropping off Travel Bug Trackables on the web site you are mirroring the Bug's real world adventures.
Each Travel Bug has its own 'diary' that follows its movements.

GPS Activities & Lesson Plans

GPS Activities & Lesson Plans
Using GPS and Geocaching in the core curriculum has become a powerful tool in enhancing student understanding of geography, scientific inquiry, math concepts, physical education, problem solving, and language arts.
Students in this picture are mapping a local park. It was an easy 5 minute walk to the park. The teacher planned out waypoints for the student to log as part of a larger introduction to how GPS units work.

The GIS 2 GPS Portal
This site was developed by educators for educators and students. We want to make educators and students aware of these two new emerging technologies, Geographical Information System (GIS), Global Positioning System (GPS), and Remote Sensing (RS).
We also want to provide a site where educators can find useful links, lesson plans and find classroom resources and ideas they can use with their projects.

Educators Explore How to Use GPS for Teaching
Educators are exploring how students can use GPS technologies to tackle real-world problems in science and other areas
"It's a natural bridge to use GPS and geocaching to develop kids' awareness to their location, their community, and their environment," says Smith. "They start to understand where they are."

GPS on Wikipedia [Global Positioning System]
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Global_Positioning_System
GPS on Wikipedia [Global Positioning System]
The Global Positioning System (GPS) is a space-based satellite navigation system that provides location and time information in all weather, anywhere on or near the Earth, where there is an unobstructed line of sight to four or more GPS satellites.
It is maintained by the United States government and is freely accessible to anyone with a GPS receiver.
The GPS project was developed in 1973 to overcome the limitations of previous navigation systems.
In addition to GPS, other systems are in use or under development. The Russian GLObal NAvigation Satellite System (GLONASS) was in use by only the Russian military, until it was made fully available to civilians in 2007. There are also the planned European Union Galileo positioning system, Chinese Compass navigation system, and Indian Regional Navigational Satellite System.
