GPS and Comms

Starcom Audio system – The Starcom can be used to listen to an MP3 player, rider-to-rider radion comms, talk to a pillion, answer your phone and listen to music. We are both using Starcom units, Adrian has the StarCom Digital and Russell has the Starcom Advance. We don’t have radios, so for this trip its sole purpose will be to listen to music on those long days in the saddle.

Tomtom Rider 2 GPS – not sure how effective the Africa maps are going to be, but I’m sure we’ll get some use out of it. (Adrian)

Garmin Zumo 550 – It has it quriks, its known to send it’s owner down obsquere side roads, but it’s solid and, to use and reliable. (Russell)

SPOT 2 Personal Tracker – The SPOT 2 Personal Tracker is a GPS Satellite location device that can be used to notify friends and family of your location and progress via a SMS message or Google Maps. In the event of a life threatening or other critical emergency, you can notify emergency services of your GPS location and that you need assistance.
