  • Reas. Price GPS

    I am looking for a GPS unit that is under $100. I would get a Garmin but they are priced a little bit to high for me. Basically I want the best bang for the buck. Any reply's would be appreciated.

      I concur. I got mine for around $120. I had to tell WinXP manually to use the USB-COM drivers provided, but otherwise it's been painless and comfortable. It's nice because it's small and doesn't need an additional power source, I'd highly recommend it.

      Too bad Co-pilot doesn't work with it. Hope it will next year!

        the older earthmate serial ones sell for less than 100. i have the even older tripmate serial that sells for about 50 on ebay. the new ultra small ones are like 130 or so. shop around

          I found that the new usb earthmates loose the signal a lot for me, and also since they are usb they flip out and act weird if you do a suspend or hibernate. I usually just suspend the computer when I leave the car, and when I come back resume it. when I did that using a usb receiver it wouldnt find it, or it would just say aquiring signal for ever and then sometimes find it. I am going to use a serial older tripmate since the antenna is larger and its more reliable. not as accurate or fast, but at least it would work consistantly.

            I have a USB earthmate for my notebook it kicks way more butt than my old RandMcnall one did. If you become a registered customer they send you offers all the time in the mail to buy the receiver for 99.xx.

              If you plan to use NMEA v2.0 software with USB-to-serial, get the Deluo GPS. It's under $100 and it gets a lock faster than the Earthmate. On top of that, the drivers work perfectly. It's also USB.

                  I comment bout Navroute for loosing signal all the time compare to my garmin and once I also did a try out of Radioshack's serial Gps which was discontinued
                  both of them works perfect always got 10 lock sat, today I baugth a usb hub just find out that power adapter was not included , went to Ratshack but coudnt find 5 volts so i grab the 6 volts and pray, My Gyro Mouse and KB works
                  fine check the Navroute GPS I was surprise usually i got 7 sat lock but today got 10 and never lost signal for 1 1/2 driving since its magnet mount and waterproof i installed on top of the roof and got better result.
