GPS/XM WX Combo Patent Application

A Bushnell patent application was disclosed today, October 12, 2006, for a combination unit for a rugged, portable GPS with weather data tied to location. Although is says that it could work with Sirius or XM or other services, it specifically mentions the XM WX service. I would have to have one of these. This has huge implications for first responders.

It was originally thought to be a Garmin application. No ties can be found back to Garmin. The real applicant is making a conscience effort to hide who they are. Two of the inventors can be tied to Bushnell in Overland Park, Kansas, plus one other inventor that appears on another, similar application. Perhaps Bushnell is planning to enter the GPS market. GPS is not listed as one of their products on their web page, but clearly there are GPS applications tied to Bushnell. There is a Bill Cross and a Richard Ball listed as inventors in the previously linked application. In other applications, there is a John W. Cross, probably the same as Bill Cross. There are also several other applications that tie all the inventors to a Christopher Lalik, not a very common name. Lalik is also listed as a Bushnell inventor.

The legal firm has now been tied to Bushnell. It appears conclusive that this is a Bushnell application.

It appears that Bushnell is going into the GPS/Weather data business.

It sure thought it was Garmin, but it starting to appear that it is Bushnell, which is located in Overland Park, Kansas. If the law firm can be tied to Bushnell, then it will be conclusive.

Stock market India is volatile and all those who speculate in market are loosing everyday. Please remember stock market is not for speculation purpose. If one feel investing in stock market is gamble then its better to think again.
One should always note that if they want to invest money they should do proper research be it fundamental research or technical research. Just think how come you can invest
your money without any convincing reason for the same?
Indian stock market is one of the most happening and emerging market. Major Indian stock exchanges are BSE and NSE and both are of world class standards.
