Here comes “a location based self-guided touring system” from BarZ Adventures. It is an offline GPS multimedia guide system for zoos, parks and historic sites. It shows visitors their position on a map and automatically plays videos, audios, stills or texts at the right place of a specific site. The GPS Ranger is comparable with the cruso and the nodeexplorer – although the latter is a connected device and offers a content management system.
