Before we left we invested in a SPOT GPS tracker, which happily flashes away on the back of Flora's Pannier and appeases worried Mums. It also pings our location to the map below every half an hour or so. It's a bit dodgy at altitude or without a clear view of the sky, hence why it jumps occasionally, but you get a good idea of where we've been in the last seven days. It also has an SOS button*, that kids just love to try and push, but we hope we never need to use!
*Life threatening situations only, not lack of KitKat Chunkys.
