CNET News.com reporter Daniel Terdiman is hitting the highway for Road Trip 2006, a two-week adventure through the Pacific Northwest. Among the gadgets he'll tote on the way is this Globalstar GSP-1600 satellite phone, which he'll use to make calls from remote locations, and hopefully to also connect to the Internet when no Wi-Fi is available.
The Magellan Roadmate 3000T is one of three GPS units Daniel is bringing along. He'll be testing the three to see which advises him most accurately.
Daniel will use this new Apple Computer 15-inch MacBook Pro for live video chats from the road, watching DVDs with a remote control and connecting to the Internet wirelessly.
Two satellite phones, including this Iridium 9505A, will help keep Daniel connected to his friends, family and co-workers. He's eager to see which works best.
This Garmin GPSMAP 76CX unit is waterproof, which could prove useful when Daniel researches the science of natural hot springs.
Daniel will be counting on this Garmin Nuvi 350 car navigator to direct him accurately to each of his many destinations.
