Still very much a work in progress, but finally got to a presentable point in the process!
Using Arduino UNO, Ultimate GPS Logger Shield, an LCD from (another company....for now
), a few buttons, and a "Skeleton Case"....

I'm waiting on a different/better enclosure and screen from Adafruit right now. Then I can button things up a bit nicer, get the screen out of the way of the GPS antenna, and make it a bit more durable. It's not entirely
solar powered. More "solar-assisted" as the USB battery uses solar panel to help keep the battery charged. But, I know I'm using more mA's than the sun is putting back into my source! :!:
I plan on using it to help me with my final project for my GIS class (Geographic Information Systems) to help me collect & track location-based data. So, I'm sure I'll be adding a few other sensors & features to it soon!
If anyone has any questions...or better yet, advice/suggestions
