Trevor has great information on the use of electronic gadgets. I would recommend that you have a back up system as well as a cell phone for the time the gadget has a dead battery or gets dropped, or simply malfunctions. A compass and a map are sureproof life savers. If you need a computer to find the shortest route back to camp you should stay away from the desert. As for the jetski, it is nice to know the water depth, temperature,hidden obstructions, and route back to the casino but is it really safe to ride a class A jetboat at night with only a running light and no brakes?
