Meet Earl. This handheld device does it all.

Recommended Posts

Somebody posted this up on my overlanding forum. It's a Kickstarter type crowd funded tablet for outdoors.

Earl - Backcountry survival tablet

 

Here are a couple of the features it will offer (if it gets funded)

 

  • Internal weather sensors
  • Built-in solar charger
  • FRS, GMRS, and MURS transceiver
  • AM, FM, SW, LW radio
  • weatherproof
  • Flexible E-Ink screen
  • 20+ hour battery
  • WiFi, Bluetooth 4.0, IR, ANT+, NFC

Sorry for geeking out, but this thing is awesome!

It says it has a 6" screen. Looks to me like it is the size of a large smart phone.

seems like it's got the right stuff to be a versatile outdoor tool. i'll stick with my 10" full color tablet in the jeep, but that would be great on hikes.

$249 or $299 if you want the 24K topo.

Did anyone end up ordering one of these? I am looking for a replacement for my Garmin Rino 520. The tiny screen on the Rino just doesn't cut it anymore.
