Bu-353 extension and off road software
Im looking at very soon getting a BU-353 Gps reciever. I just wanted to se if anyone haused a usb extension cable with this? does it work. Id like to remote mount this on the top of my car but in order to get to my labtop then 5m isnt going to be nearly long enough. Also will it work fine from a powered USB hub or does it need to be plugged directly into its own port/ I am also wondering about software for offroad use. I would like to use this reciver for fiding my way on a trip but i usually go off roading and am planning to start getting to longer distance buggy racing where a gps is very handy to see where your going when the road looks like everything else. I know that there are specific systems you can buy for this but i was wondering if there was anything i could use.
Thanks in advanced for the help.
