Ecco GPS Keychain Saves From Exhausting Searches For Lost Vehicles

Ecco GPS Keychain Saves From Exhausting Searches For Lost Vehicles

Forgetting where my car is parked is something that happens to me on a fairly regular basis, which makes the Ecco GPS an enticing gadget to say the least. It is a GPS unit that serves only one function, to reunite you with your vehicle with the bare minimum of legwork.
It only holds three locations, but I only have one car so it sounds alright to me. Ten minutes of use per day will get you two weeks of battery time, and it is rechargeable via USB.

A fine mist of water is sprayed from the top bar, falls on your skin and returns your body temperature from Mercury to Pluto (or at least Earth). Good for BBQ, sun worshiping and even the plants come Autumn!
