This week in GPS — June 22nd, 2013

This week in GPS is a weekly link roundup of (mostly) GPS related odds and ends, from GPS Tracklog and other places around the Web. To get a few of the biggest stories as they break, follow me on Twitter. This week’s lead video is a durability test of sorts on the new Garmin Oregon 6xx series. I suggest not trying to recreate it! Thanks to Atlas Cached for the tip.
