Techonology to bring on 3 1/2 Week Trip to Spain, Switzerland, & Austria

Jump to last reply

May 22, 2011-June 13, 2011 my huband & I will be traveling to Spain, Switzerland, and Austria. We would like to have the ability to have internet access if need be for looking up hotels, car rentals, train times, weather, and anything else a traveler would need to look up during their trip. The obvious "techy" things we will bring with us will be a digital camera and extra memory cards but other than that we are looking for any suggestions on techy things you would NOT travel without. We both have Smartphones but they are not global. We plan on renting a car to drive from Barcelona into the Rioja wine region and to San Sebastian, Spain and would like a GPS. We currently have a Garmin GPS but need to check to see if there's a global application that we can buy for it. We realize some of the cars you can rent include GPS but we aren't sure how much more they charge as we are already going to have to pay more for the rental because we don't know how to drive manual transmission. We were also thinking of purchasing a Netbook with a Wireless card but haven't looked into the cost of that and if the wireless cards are global or not. Lastly, we were also thinking about a Flipvideo camera as well. We have only traveled to Europe once in 2008 to Italy and we only had a digital camera with us and it was fine but we also didn't rent a car, travel to 3 different countries, etc. Any input/advice from you "tech-saavy" travelers out there would be GREATLY appreciated!! Thanks so much!
