Naked in the Desert (with only a GPS to get you Out)

You’re naked in the desert. The sun beats down. But you have a GPS in hand, and there’s a pre-plotted route on the device to find a way back out. That is the premise of this video, a creative promotional short put together by CompeGPS of Spain. Worth a watch. Looks like a neat concept someday for a segment of a GearJunkie adventure race, too!
