Can't remember where you parked your car? Having trouble finding your hotel? Searching for your tent in a downpour? It's not your day, is it? But don’t despair because the ECCO GPS Keychain is here to show you the way.
This staggeringly small GPS system is set to revolutionise the way you find your way back to…well, wherever it is you started. No more asking strangers for directions only to forget what they said. You won't even have to memorise landmarks or phone your mummy crying in desperation. Or is that just us? Think of it as a hi-tech breadcrumb trail without the breadcrumbs.
Lock your location
Get totally lost
Let the GPS guide you back!
An easy way to find your tent at Glasto!
Simply 'lock' in your starting location, go do your thing, then follow the ECCO's idiot-proof LCD display. You'll be tucked up before you can say 'I'm sure I turned right at that big tree.' Cooler still, the ECCO will store up to three locations, so you can find your way back to your remote guesthouse via the pub with a quick pit stop at that kebab shop you stumbled across the night before.

Dude, where's my car?
Honey, I'm sure the hotel was here somewhere...
Unlike many cutting-edge GPS devices you don't need a doctorate in cartography to use the ECCO. Just follow the on-screen arrow. It even estimates the distance to your selected destination. And with a tracking range of up to 9,999 miles, even the most intrepid/stupid traveller will have no problem finding their way back to the mother ship.
Despite its diminutive dimensions, the ECCO utilises the very latest GPS technology. Satellite acquisition time is 30-60 seconds max, and it is accurate to within 10m. And if you can't spot your car/tent/buried treasure from that distance, we can only assume you are very thick, very drunk or both.
Can save up to 3 different locations
The ECCO's internal battery recharges via USB, but don't worry about lugging your computer around because the charge lasts for a month on standby and approximately 2 weeks if you use it for ten minutes every day. But let's be honest, if you need to use a personal SatNav device on a daily basis you'd be better off getting your mum to draw a big L and a big R on your shoes. Or staying in and watching Jeremy Vile.
Tracks up to 32 satellites within 60 seconds.
Tracking distance up to 9999 miles.
Store up to 3 locations (car, tent, hotel, etc).
Rechargeable battery USB connection at home, computer, or in your car.
Highly sensitive GPS receiver provides faster acquisition times and improved tracking capabilities.
Built in electronic compass that provides bearing information while you're standing still, always pointing you in the general direction.
Display directional arrow, direction and distance counts down as you move closer to your saved location and counts up as you move farther away.
No service fees.
Smallest personal GPS system that fits on a keychain.
I have just noticed, at the top of the page, there is a notice that states "This product is no longer available". Is this true please let me know. Roni., Turkey - 26th April 2012
Firebox says: Hello, yes the item is now out of stock and has been discontinued unfortunately.
Does it really work well? Andrew, Runcorn, Cheshire, UK - 15th November 2011
Firebox says: It does! this little beaut will point you in the right direction, even up to 9,999 miles away! Now, Go get lost! (but buy one before you do that)
Does it save your locations if you turn it off? Andy, Wolves - 8th September 2011
Firebox says: It does indeed Andy, up to 3 locations.
I am thinking of getting this, but I don't think I will be attaching it to keys, and would keep it separate from them (not in the same bag). We lost the car when we parked on a ferry to France then could not find the car. We eventually found it cos it was at the front of a line of cars waiting to get off the ferry. LOL! Staff and fellow travellers were entertained as we ran up and down looking. Though doubt the GPS would work in that situation! Rosie, Belvedere - 21st July 2011
So what if I were to have this attached to my car keys and managed to lose them with the location of my car saved on it? Or even my home. I'm not sure how a product like this could exist considering the security flaw of advertising the location of the lock for the keys. Shaun, United Kingdom - 24th May 2011
Worked great for a few days after the initial charge. However the second time I charged it the device didn't correctly turn on again. The lights were on, but nobody home. Shame, as it worked a treat for a bit. Had to return it. Scott, Denham - 31st March 2011
Firebox says: Hi Scott, sorry to hear that. If you haven't already contacted us please do on email@example.com and we will sort this out for you.
