Artful GPS Experiments

Crime Scene
Over the winter I got a Garmin Forerunner 405, on one particular day I thought I would wear it on the treadmill (which is on my front porch) and this is what it looked like on my Garmin Dashboard...

I got lots of comments, the best of which was that it looked like a crime scene.

Then this summer I was curious how many miles I put in just cutting my lawn, so I decided to wear my Garmin while I cut the lawn and this is what that little experiment looked like:

Angry Pac-Man
I thought this was pretty interesting... kinda looks like a angry pacman with one red and one green eye about to gobble my house.

Which got my thinking about GPS art, has anyone tried to spell out words on city grids or design anything while wearing their GPS unit?

Just curious... I thought it was an interesting idea
