  • Help with decision!!!

    I'm looking to purchase a GPS for my carputer. What can I get for $150 and below with a 1 second or better update? Am I wording this correctly? VERY confused (as usual )

    you might wanna check deulo.com. They have a rs232 reciever (I dont think it has software) or a usb reciever for about 80-90 dollars. I dont remember the specs off the top of my head, so go give it a one over.

    AMD Duron 600
    TM - 701 ( Touchscreen and VGA kits will be added later)
    ATI Rage Fury

      i like my earthmate. It refreshes around 2-3 second though. I doubt you'll find a 1sec refresh rate for sub 150

          Wow, thanks Scythe! That's not a bad price. I wish it were USB, but I'll live

          Peace,

            O, I can just get the Serial to USB for $20. Not bad at all.

            Peace
