        I have one. It is slow and the output is propritary so it only works with their software. I have heard that someone has reverse engineered it and made a converter to standard output. You can get a ps2 keybaord adapter to power it rather than batteries (which last about an hour)

          I was talking software. I have Street Atlas USA 9.0 deluxe but I'm taking a trip to Canada.

            My batteries usually last me for several hours (Only real test it's gotten is a couple 4 hour trips.. but that's more than one!)

            the gps seems a bit inaccurate as well.. when I get up by my friend's house the gps is off by as much as a mile x.x i don't know if that's due to outdated software or what..

              That's why I ordered the power adapter

                Which Delorme GPS do you have? If it's the tripmate, you can easily hack it to be NMEA compliant, which will give you more sfotware choices. MS Streets & Trips is the only one with decent Canadian coverage.

                  I like Delorme and I Have the earthmate GPS. It's not bad at all, even though it's not NMEA

                    You can convert Delorme's Earthmate to NMEA output with this:

                      GPSDrive?

                      Why not just use GPSDrive. Course, ya gotta use Linux, and an NMEA capable GPS device...

                          Awww, comon. With enough nagging, perhaps Chris and I can convert you to the Dark Side.
