Satski skiing GPS

Fresh from fish and chips land Satski brings us a new stand alone device for navigation in skiing resorts, the Satski GPS. I haven’t been skiing for a decade (I prefer a burning sun now), but of course this is a nice piece of news. Satski had their software before to be used at smart phones (and connection rates!), but this gps has the maps included. The stand alone device was too expensive, so was in fact for rent only.

The things I like are:

  • build in information on emergency/mountain rescue services
  • real time route plotting from the whole day with average speed and more
  • colour touch screen
  • Satski Ski Viewer software to see your skiing vacation at home (see the Satski demo here)
  • use Google Earth to see your skiing in 3D (see the Satski demo here)
  • the price, at about 259 eur0 average retail price, is quite okay – I don’t say cheap, I think

What I am missing are a few skiing resorts in for instance Austria (Kaprun area) and Italy (St. Christina (Val Gardena) area), but I would think they are working on this.
