  • Any Hints on a Good GPS System?

    Im new to this whole 'place a computer in your car', and right now I have a laptop and just want to run GPS in my exploxer, so i was wondering what would be a good setup to use with my laptop. I spent alot of time on the road, so I think a GPS would be the way to good.

    Software: I'd say iGuidance 2.0 or Destinator3 with NinjaMonkey's frontend.
    Hardware: You have a lot of choices here. I have a Rayming TN-200. Many people also havet he BU-303.

    This has been discussed over and over again. Do a for more information.

        People don't seem to like that one. It isn't the best. I have an Earthamte and I'm very happy with it

          Really? I thought a lot of people liked it. Oh well.

          That picture looks exactly like my Rayming TN-200. They aren't the same thing, are they?

              Well I'll test it out. I got it for 90 dollars shipped and all. Might be a little high, but I'm just tried of looken threw maps when I'm on sale trips.

                A rikaline 6010 would have been a good choice. Have it running for 3 months, and always min 6 satellites.

                  Make sure not to run the BU303 in the rain. I'm happy with the way my BU303 works. But it is NOT weatherproof.
