    must be small, sturdy.

    i'd like an mp3 player that takes an SD or other memory card. playing OGGs is also far-preferable.

    edit: I could just get a nano ipod, but there are smaller, probably more sturdy players out there that take cards (much storage, easy to swap music, and I will have the cards anyhow for my subnotebook) even if they dont have a display and hopefully will play OGG too, im just wondering if anyone has any recommendations.

    something I would love but I doubt I'll find is if it could take a bluetooth headset/earphones. maybe there are plugins for the headphone jack that will do this?

    I also want a gps logger, just to play with mostly. Is there any software to draw your track, in 3d (logger will need to have altitude also), and provide info on speeds/distances at different points?
    Are there loggers that can record position quicker than every second? And how accurate would gps be: if displacement isn't important to me, and all that's important is that the track is accurate i.e. I dont care if the entire track is 5 meters into a field - if it'll be the same the whole way around - is this true?

    As far as the gps goes, look into the garmin forerunner or edge ones.
