@happybuddha IMO in its current state it's not answerable, which would be worth a downvote. There are precautions you can take in very specific circumstances, but "never being lost" is practically impossible.
Even with your edit - "Travelling within Australia by road" (assuming you mean you will be driving) would be answerable and reasonable IMO. "Travelling between the USA and Australia on a direct flight" would also be answerable and reasonable. Including the two requires two very different and separate answers.
Example: Changing your question to "What should I factor in preparations so that when I drive within Australia, I am never lost?"
A: Rent/buy a GPS. Obtain a credible Australia-wide road map. Have a mobile phone with access to Google Maps.
A flight data recorder (FDR) (also ADR, for accident data recorder) is an electronic device employed to record any instructions sent to any electronic systems on an aircraft. It is a device used to record specific aircraft performance parameters. Another kind of flight recorder is the cockpit voice recorder (CVR), which records conversation in the cockpit, radio communications between the cockpit crew and others (including conversation with air traffic control personnel), as well as ambient sounds. In this both functions have been combined into a single unit. The current applicable FAA ...
FDRs are usually located in the rear of the aircraft, typically in the tail. In this position, the entire front of the aircraft is expected to act as a "crush zone" to reduce the shock that reaches the recorder. Also, modern FDRs are typically double wrapped, in strong corrosion-resistant stainless steel or titanium, with high-temperature insulation inside. They are usually bright orange.
They are designed to emit an underwater locator beacon for up to 30 days and can operate immersed to a depth of up to 6,000 meters (20,000 ft)
and yet, they can't hear the one from that flight :(
@happybuddha I was actually thinking about the Blue Mountains - ravines up there can be GPS dead zones because of insufficient sky to get a connection, and there's negligible mobile phone reception through them.
Distress radio beacons, also known as emergency beacons, PLB (Personal Locator Beacon), ELT (Emergency Locator Transmitter) or EPIRB (Emergency Position-Indicating Radio Beacon), are tracking transmitters which aid in the detection and location of boats, aircraft, and people in distress. Strictly, they are radiobeacons that interface with worldwide offered service of Cospas-Sarsat, the international satellite system for search and rescue (SAR). When manually activated, or automatically activated upon immersion, such beacons send out a distress signal. The signals are monitored worldwide ...

I like this (above) - not for the question, which is very off-topic, but the speed at which 3 polite comments explained why it wasn't suitable, all within seconds of each other. I posted mine and the other two appeared as well
Is it morbid to you based on your belief systems ? either way, what is the point of that comment ? I dont understand what you are asking
Wordweb says morbid : Suggesting an unhealthy mental state. Hmm.. though I would love to leave you what you believe in.. just a FYI.. It is a meditative technique in Buddhism where in Gautama regularly instructed his disciples to meditate in cemeteries. I reckon you read about Buddhism before you go about commenting what is morbid or what is not based on your limited understanding.
can someone else check this for me? When I click my name next to a message in the chat, the little profile thing pops up, whereupon it says "Moderator for Travel SE". I assume this is a bug of sorts, given that this hasn't been the case for almost a year?
