On October 12, 2006, Satellite Radio TechWorld alerted its readers to a patent application for GPS/XM WX combo. It was unclear at first on whose behalf the patent application was filed. After much research and as unlikely as it seemed at the time, Satellite Radio TechWorld concluded that Bushnell was behind the patent application. Today, Orbitcast published an article about XM winning three CES 2007 awards for innovation. There among them was an XM-Ready Bushnell Weather Tracker GPS, further confirmation that Bushnell was behind the patent application and has now entered the GPS business. You heard it here first.
It's a powerful idea having weather data tied to location in a portable, handheld device. Imagine having your personal weather forecast at your fingertips, whether on the golf course or on the hiking trail. You know where the lighting strikes are happening or how long you have before a storm comes. Who needs the weather channel on TV any more. Sounds like a great product. Can't wait to see it.
