  • Best GPS USB reciver - $$ is not an object

    Of course it allways is but we could spend up to $200 on the GPS reciver in this project

    This really is a ridiculous question.

    Why don't you try spending some time reading in the forum rather than just asking someone to tell you. Better yet, why don't you just go and purchase a complete solution from one of the many CarPC retailers. If you don't want to take the time to understand why you are going with each and every solution in your set-up, then it's the best option.

              I'd go with the Trimble 252. They start at $3000 for the WAAS version, $5000 for OmniStar XP/HP capability, or $7000 for dual frequency RTK support. Position updates at 10 Hz with an accuracy of under one inch.

              If you can wait a couple months, I've heard they are coming out with a new version that will probably add GLONASS support.

              You did say $ is not an issue.

                Well - if you read this post you would have seen - not an issue up to $200. Now if we were talking about pice of audio eqipment - well you just mentioned about 1/8th of the retail of my audio system Also not sure why knowing my position to an inch would help me on the road. Precision is good but I do not think we need it to more then to couple of feets at best. Now speed of aqusition, relaiability in the city, overall relaiability - thats important

                  This ALL depends on how well you want it integrated. Again, a few reads through a few threads will tell you a ton about which GPS receivers are top on people's lists.

                  If you want it 100% integrated, the GPS mouse isn't the way to go.

                    After killing a few gps mouse receivers with wet weather and usb problems, I use a Garmin OEM 16 HVS High-Sensitivity $93. Gamin also has the Garmin GPS 18x 5Hz High-Sensitivity for $140 for something more accurate.

                      Just don't try to run it thru quality window tint...you won't get a signal.

                        Has to be an ouside unit - I have a acoustic leaded glass with bluesh tint(standart on my car) which screws up GPSes very well

                            Qiuick question - I'm not sure I need precision of the 5 HZ one - is regular Garmin GPS 18 USB a good reciver(easier to integrate). Like Ive sad my criterias are good resolution, fast lock and behavior round tall building.
