If you’ve ever lost your car, wife or house because of your poor sense of direction, then the miniHomer from Navin may save the day. A keyring-sized GPS compass, the miniHomer may not have an appetite for donuts but it will store up to five different locations (one of which could be a donut store, admittedly) and guide you back to them with a digital compass.
It’s also waterproof to IPX7 standards and has a selection of different location categories – including home, car and restaurant – so you can differentiate between each point. Charging is via miniUSB connection, and while Navin are playing coy on exactly how long a single charge will last for, the miniHomer will at least preserve the stored coordinates even if the battery dies.
A backlit display and straightforward controls round out the navigator, and there’s a clock in there too. No word on pricing – though Navin tell us it’ll be no more expensive than GPS navigators currently on the market – but it’ll drop in November.
