A couple of GPS location questions. Answered
I need a lightweight way to locate an object that has dropped from altitude and could be 30+ miles from my position. I was hoping that there i a simple, relatively cheap GPS transmitter/receiver system I could attach to the object. All it needs to do is transmit its coordinates at a regular interval, 5 to 15 min and have a range up to around 50 miles. Can anybody point me in the right direction?
I have an old cell phone with a GPS in it. Is there a way for me to utilize this possibly? Either taking out the GPS unit or making use of the phone as-is.
Or if you have an alternative means for locating an object at distance feel free to post that as well.
