Review of IgotU GPS Travel Logger 600

clip_image002[6]We were recently sent the IgotU GPS Travel Logger 600 and asked to review it, for the benefit of the tech-savvy traveller. Here is our verdict – the IgotU GPS Travel Logger 600 with its, motion detector technology, i-gotU software suite and rechargeable batteries is one of the best travel logging devices on the market today. The GT600 only weighs 37 grams and is the ultimate travel blogging tool, so if you have not purchased one for yourself yet, we think it is time to do so.


Why the IgotU 600 is Better than the GT- 200 and the GT-120

clip_image004The IgotU GPS Travel Logger 600 easily beats the GT- 200 which was released earlier as its motion sensor technology makes the device automatic, turning the Logger’s power on with any movement and switching it to sleep mode when no motion is detected. This not only makes it easier to use but also works to save battery time.

The IgotU GPS Travel Logger 600 is also much better than the GT-120 version which does not have half as many features and is not equipped with motion sensor technology. The 600 also comes with A USB cable which makes it easy for users to connect the device to a PC, Mac, IPad and other such gadgets.

We encourage travellers of all kinds to visit Mobile Action and get this gadget as we believe it to be useful (if not essential), well priced at and easy to use.
