    So I picked up a cool GPS Tracker.

    Only 27g. It's actually a real cell phone, although it can only call 3 or 4 numbers. I bought a T-Mobile SIM card and loaded it up with $10. It's got a speaker and a mic. But it's main claim to fame is it updates it's position every few minutes by text message to the web. You can text it and it sends you a map of it's location.

    You program it by sending it texts. I probably should have sent it the text to switch to English first...

    The web site you register on is all in Chinese. You can log in and see your drone's position. I believe it's set to Google Maps by default and I screwed something up. Have to do some research.

    Or you can send it a text and the thing texts you back a map.

    Kinda great to have a bit of a backup just incase this thing zooms off to China some day.
