The arrival of relatively cheap smart phones has really lowered the barrier to entry to owning a GPS navigation device. However, the benefits of being able to tell exactly where you are, and to find things around you and get to them are still out of reach to a large portion of the world population.

The purpose of this project is to produce a very low cost, easily rechargeable low power GPS navigation device that has many of the capabilities of an up-market device and a few extras that benefit people living in developing countries. This could include basic off-road navigation (handy where there are no roads), finding nearby geographic features (like fresh water sources) and being able to calculate distances and areas (useful for making approximations in farming).
