You mentioned "send a text message to have someone be able to follow me". Basic iPhone Message has a new feature to send your location, but not to set up a tracking relationship. You might be interested in our app Group Tracker ⊚. Currently available on iPhone, undergoing a significant revision for iOS 8, with version 1.3 to be released shortly. It's ...

If you and your follower both have iOS devices, Find My Friends can do what you are asking for.

Yes, there's an app exactly for what you're looking for, and it's called Glympse. You can choose to share your location, set a timer on how long that location will be shared, and send the details (it's just a link) to any of your contacts via text message, Twitter, email, a bunch of other messaging apps etc. What I like about this is that you can limit ...

Yes, Google Latitude! Ok, last year they merged it with google+, so now it's just under locations in that app, but it allows you to share your GPS location with other contacts or friends, on a pinpoint or city-wide location. It used to look like this: source But now, while still similar, is in Google+, and you can activate it as per the following ...

First, establish the use for the backpack. Will you be wearing it all day, in all kinds of weather, while walking 8 or 12 hours through nature? Or will you be putting it in the luggage compartment of buses or trains? Will you be using it in a city where you need to worry about pickpockets or bag-slicers? Does it matter that it fits the rules for carryon ...

Find a pack of appropriate size. Find other things from the store and stuff every compartment to the max. While packing everything you'll need. Put it on and walk around. Climb some stairs or step onto a bench/chair. Is it comfortable? Can you easily access some compartments while wearing it? Can you use the zippers while wearing gloves? Does it inhibit ...

I managed to find a couple of shops which had "hydration bladders" as well as "hydration packs", all of them were westernised bicycle shops with a wide range of accessories. Flying Bikes 2 had a good quality 1 liter bladder for 23 USD and a lower quality 2 liter for 18 USD. On street 182 between Bd. Charles De Gaulle and Monivong Bd. there was a ...

According to this thread on a dedicated forum there's a bike shop called Flying Bikes in Phnom Penh that should sell Hydrapacks's. Flying Bikes sell Hydrapaks - as good as a camelbak. A quick search on Google maps reveals that there are two homonymous shops with incremental names. I'm not sure if they are part of the same franchise though. Here is ...

In some countries (like Brazil) you cannot declare an item as you leave. People started using it to obtain a legal receipt to items they managed to smuggle inside the country. Now the only accepted form to prove an item was your prior to your trip is having the original receipt with the date you bought it. As a side note, in Brazil (I don't know how does ...

Depending on your nationality, some countries allow you to declare new items of value before you depart the country, so that when you return there is a record that you had it before you left home. Both the US and Canada have a system for doing this and I imagine many other developed nations do as well. If you have bought anything of higher value such as ...

For a start, if it's in a box, it's going to look new. So chuck out any packaging. If it's a camera/cellphone/computer, if you've got stuff on it, that's easy to show it's been used - you can turn it on and show them you actively use it. For clothing etc, there's not much really, but hopefully all price tags were long removed too. Photos of you in the ...
