Route tracking device

I am looking for device (not mobile phone app or iPad) that will record routes taken on driving tests. I do not want to leave my phone or iPad in the car during a test. Is there anything out there which will record route used by my pupils so I can review the test route later? Thank You

Re: Route tracking device

I have been using a Garmin etrex basic version for years. You can pick them up on a popular online auction site for about £30 now.  I have it plugged in to a power point fitted in the boot and use the garmin 5v power lead to run it, saving on batteries. I obtained the mapsource software to download it to my computer through a serial to usb adaptor I also acquired from the auction site. I have every test route recorded from the last 10 years showing street by street where the car went and the speed at any given time.
Technology has moved on though and it is simpler to do as Roadmaster suggests and use a cheap android phone these days.

Re: Route tracking device

I know you said you don't want a mobile app but surely a cheap mobile would be more use. I wrote an Android app which tracks the tests and I can view progress of the test while waiting in the test centre as well as keeping a log. It can also warn me when the car is returning so I can go out to meet it for any potential debrief.

Re: Route tracking device

Sounds good. Are you marketing it and if so,  for what platform?

Re: Route tracking device

I wrote the app for my own use but have considered putting it on the Android Play Store when I get time to do more work on it.
