  • Proven GPS receiver?

    I don't see a FAQ or Sticky for GPS receivers... is there a proven model? Rikaline 6010 seems to sell for about $60 on eBay. Is this a decent receiver? I want to spend no more than $75.03

    You know...I don't recall any posts recently where somebody said their GPS unit sucked. Some don't like Delorme, I guess. But I don't recall anything bad about the Rikaline.

        Never used the Rikaline. The BUB-303 is cheap and works really well.

                BU303 is proven to work, (usually the ebay result on "gps mouse") but does cause occasional problems. Mine went rusty.

                        I got a Rikaline 6010 that just died on me. The PC detects it, iGuidance detects it but it can't find any satellites.. It was perfect for about 4 months though.

                          Rayming TN-200

                          I've been using the TN-200 for about a month now. Every once in a while I have issues "finding" sat's... but my install is inside the car. It's got a mag in it, so once I get off my a$$ and tuck the USB cable along with my car antenae, I should have better reception.

                          I only paid $110 for it... it would have been cheeper if I bought it with iGuidance :\

                            Honestly i love my Holux Gm-210.. it connects really fast and has great signal. They have a newer version that is much smaller. Search ebay..

                              I love my DeLorme EarthMate USB. It's $99, but it's USB (and comes with mapping software). It works with DeLorme software with no drivers, but to use it with anything else you just install a small driver that makes it appear as a new COM port.

                              It has worked great for over a year (though I did have to move it to the daah up front after I tinted my hatch-back window or it would take forever to connect).
