I'm making an Arduino based tracking device and I can't think of a name for it.  Since I usually give away a free one of the items I sell I thought I'd make a little contest out of this one.  See here http://dsscircuits.com/articles/name-this-board-contest.html for details.  I've got several names so far but none have hit the nail on the head yet.

a fuel gauge... GPS, accelerometer... AutoBot? As in Autobots, Roll out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tXwZGmjubNU&feature=related

Flea as in something that sticks to something (moving in this case) and "sucks" from it. In this case, data.

Can't think of much more.
This... is a hobby.

Video game tracker? Mario-ino?

Less obvious, a name from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aboriginal_tracker
Mogoino

Somewhere, in my head, is the name of one or more "tracker" characters from fiction. The retrieval bot is not doing a very good job though. And I'm far from being knowledgable on video games.

I put 'tracker' into Google translate, and set it to English->Italian. It came back with 'tracker'.  :smiley-roll:

FuBoard as in Fuel Board. I was trying to make something clever with foobar, but that's the best I came up with.

This... is a hobby.
