Want to keep track of your trips from anywhere you are? Here’s a DIY GPS to SD-card data logger/compass by Ktulu:

Earlier this year I have bought on the flea market a used car GPS system, an Amstrad gp1000.  (Un)fortunately it was so badly damaged, that it could not be  repaired, so I thought I would reuse some parts from it. Then came the idea of building a portable GPS logger system.

Check out the video after the break.
