Which GPS receiver and software to use with laptop?
I'm leaving soon for an 18 month trip around Africa
and will have a laptop mounted in the cab (sorry, I'm not on a bike, I'm in a truck), which I will use for music, navigation etc.
I'm looking for help in deciding which GPS receiver to use? My assumption is that USB is the way to go, with an external antenna. Anyone have some advice for me please?
Also, what software should I use for realtime navigation?
I'm thinking I'll use the Tracks4Africa
GPS waypoints, which use mapsource (from Garmin).
Therefore it will be necessary to interface with mapsource.
