It’s never a good idea to brave the backcountry without some form of navigational device on-hand. Which is this Fogo GPS Receiver and Walkie Talkie is a godsend. It’s the only gadget, as FOGO Outdoors claims, that combines GPS, Bluetooth, and voice and text messaging in one package.
Also here is a USB backup battery in case you run out of juice. To top it all off, there’s an inbuilt LED flashlight that’s perfect for emergency situations. It is, in essence, a “peace of mind” kind of gadget — the kind you take along a trip to breathe a sigh of relief.
FOGO also lets you automatically send a text message to friends if you’re in a pickle. It also controls the flashlight with the GPS to help you navigate better. Take it along if you’re going fishing, hiking, traveling, or just plain camping. FOGO might just be your ticket out of a sticky situation.
Though we err on the side of skepticism in terms of FOGO Outdoors calling this a “digital Swiss Army Knife,” it’s quite difficult to argue against that. Though a lofty description, it’s technically correct. This is, after all, bundled with so many potentially life-saving essentials that it’s practically a must-have. Especially if you frequent the outdoors.
The Walkie Talkie is optional, just to note. It’s called the SmartCap, a modular accessory. And since it’s removable, you can pull it out and use other accessories with different functions. For example, FOGO Outdoors plans to make modular plugs that add a satellite modem, avalanche beacon, or a laser range finder to the device.BUY IT HERE
