For those that love the outdoors and adventure, then having a table dedicated just for this use may be appealing. The EARL is a tablet soon to hit the market for survivalists that still want to rely on technology.
EARL is a new type of tablet. Designed for the outdoor enthusiast this tablet takes survival technology to the next level with a myriad of excellent features that make heading into the great outdoors and wilderness much less risky and quite safer.
The claim is that this unit will revolutionize the way outdoorsmen and women get and use information technology when in the outdoors. Having the ability to get instant updates on weather and being able to fully articulate your position with exacting certitude is an absolute necessity when heading out into the most remote areas of the United States and Canada and even around the globe.
The hype surrounding the EARL is in the technology that it incorporates into a single unit. There are a whack of units out there that do everything the EARL does but none of them have all of the features combined in one rugged and stylish unit.
The EARL is still in the development stage at the current time. The release date is scheduled for some time in late 2016 and the suggested retail price is going to be in the $299 range which is very reasonable for a unit that does the stuff that this unit will do. You can pre-order the EARL and get more information.
The commitment required for the EARL is pretty minimal. After the unit is full charged you simply need to take it out and use the features whenever required.
The EARL incorporates a GPS chipset that can calculate your exact location, elevation and direction that you are heading in any climate and condition so that when outdoors you always know exactly where you are and where you are heading. The Alert capabilities use a built in sensor to determine the weather exactly where you are rather than a weather report from an area that may be far from your current location or one that is out of date or in many cases simply incorrect. You get the full picture of conditions at your exact GPS location with the barometric pressure which is a great indicator of potential coming storms, you get the humidity reading and the current temperature all exactly where you are. The EARL also incorporates a full two way radio with both a VHF and UHF receiver that can connect to analog and digital radio frequencies up to 20 miles away. You will be able to send a secure text or voice message and even transmit the weather conditions to others using the EARL. The other important component is a full am/FM/swl/lw radio function that allows you to know exactly what is up whenever on the trail.
Final EARL Review
As stated above, there are many units on the market that do what the EARL does, however you need a variety of them to do all the things the EARL does in one unit. Whenever you head outdoors you want a way to A) Get information. B) Know the weather instantly and accurately at your EXACT location. C) Be able to communicate with 2 way capabilities when necessary and finally be able to do this with one single unit. The EARL does all of this and more. We are prepared to give the EARL a thumbs up.
The EARL will definitely be a winner among the outdoors lovers who want to be safe and secure when in the wilderness. It does everything you need to have a great, worry free time when outdoors. An additional product you may be interested in is the Life Straw.
