The vests capture a variety of data - among the stats some players run up to 29km in a match - that’s kept secret. “Australia says no other country is using similar technology and it will be a secret weapon in preparing for the 2009 Ashes and the 2011 World Cup.”

One of the big challenges with satnav devices is inputing the target address. In some device you scroll through lists of city names, then street names; in others you “type” it in and hope for a match.

It sends information to the unit via Bluetooth.
