    Hi guys,

    I need to make a device or just a circuit which consists of a push
    button and other required circuitry. The aim is that when the push
    button is pressed, the device records its current location (lat and
    long) and sends it off in an email. How feasible is this? I was
    thinking the circuit will require some sort of GPS chip, a SIM card
    and a microprocessor as the controller. Could you please give any
    advice or links to help me get started?

    Cheers.

    Yes, it's feasible and pretty easy these days. Combined GPS and GSM
    modules exist.
    Google is your friend, I got these:

    Thanks, that's the sort of thing I need. Does cost a fair bit, doesn't
    it? I'll check out Jaycar and Altronics too.
    Haha no, I just passed that hurdle. This is at work although it feels
    somewhat the same.
