  • what gps reciever to buy?

    I would like to buy a gps reciever for in car navigation. I plan on using the gps with my hp 9500t laptop. I would prefer a usb reciever unless there is a advantage with a bluetooth reciever. I just do not know what gps to get. Should I buy something like a 32 channel MTK or is there something better? I plan on using the gps with copilot live 10. Thanks for your replies.

    Any receiver that outputs NMEA data.
    Sirfstar III chipsets are supposedly more accurate with a faster lock time, but not at all necessary. You can get a new one for about $55 without looking too hard.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?



    Under normal circumstances, a signature would go here.

      Is the MTK better than the Sirfstar III?

            i have a MTK bluetooth receiver (qstarz 818) and it picks up 9-10 satellites even when it's inside my glovebox!
