In Car GPS

 

First the limitation, it only shows where I am, not how to get anywhere.

It has turned out to be fairly accurate, always a bonus.

 

Virus Information

Components:

Approx Cost

Contact

IPAQ HX4700 PDA (I used my work one)

$830.00

 

CE OziExplorer Software

$42.00

 

Compact Flash GPS Receiver

$199.00

 

 

 

 

 

Iím sure that any Pocket PC PDA can be used with the GPS unit I choose, however as I had a PDA for work already I used that. It also has the added bonus of having one of the fastest processors found in a PDA.

 

 

I choose the Oziexplorer software because it has both desktop and PDA components. I used the desktop component to create the maps. You donít need this unless you want to create your own maps.

 

 

The Holux GM270 Ultra I choose uses the new SiRFXTrac for greater sensitivity. Iíve seen it working while sitting on the back seat (without an external antenna plugged in). See http://www.pocketgps.co.uk/holuxgm270ultra.php for details on the receiver.
