GPS - essential travel gadget to have with you on Spring break. We took ours with us on the trip to California (more about the trip: California Tripping) and saved probably around $200 not renting one with the car. And it saved us time since I was already used to operating our Garmin and following its directions. It also came in handy in finding streets once we left the car in a parking lot and went wondering around town. Google Maps What gadgets are you stocking up with for the warmer months?

Mobile Scanner - Business Travel Must Have

How many time have you found yourself with crumpled up receipts sticking out everywhere? Piled up in glove compartment, side pocket of your bag or wallet, or in a pocket of your pants.
While traveling, I have experienced that many times. You go out all the time while on a trip. Going to a restaurant, shopping, visiting attractions and so on. And the receipts from every one of these places pile up. You toss some out, but other you hold on for the time being. This is especially true for business travelers since you would need all of the proofs of purchase if you would like to be reimbursed later on by your company. The answer for the paper mess comes in the form of handheld scanners. An advancement in technology that made large imposing printer scanners into small transportable gadgets. These measuring only 1.5" x 2" x 11-13" and weighing a mere 1.5 pounds on average.

One of the first ones on the market, the first compact scanner that I ever saw, was NeatReceipts Mobile Scanner. Not only is this one slim and able to scan receipts, business cards and documents so you can organize, store and secure all your important information. It also comes with software that identifies and extracts the important information - and automatically organizes it for you. Which I thought was a great addition since its great to digitize the documents, but it is even better when they are easy to sort and view.

Other highly rated hand-held scanners:
Planon DocuPen RC805 (4+ star rating - Cnet and PCMag)

- Fujitsu SCANSNAP S1100




- Brother DSMobile Scanner




Why good to have on a trip:

- Lightweight and powered by a USB port or Wireless
- Scans without the need for a computer
- Save digital copies of receipts and records of vendors, dates, and totals
- Export data to PDF, Excel®, Quicken®, QuickBooks®, TurboTax®
- It is the greatest way to keep track of all the small receipts when on business trips or vacation

"I'd go so far as to say that this little gadget now ranks on the indispensability scale right up there with TiVo, iPod and HDTV."
