    For GPS software, in the US, I would use IGuidance or CoPilot. For a GPS Receiver, I was recommended Rikaline 6010 because it is waterproof and it has been sitting on my trunklid and survived some rainbands of Hurricane Dennis okay over the weekend.

    then you should really get this unit then, will give you the power for the laptop as well as power output to power your screen. Not to mention it will give you the output so that you can attach that to the power button your laptop to make it shutdown or hibernate by itself

    $100+ is a little high for my budget. I need to concentrate on the screen, I just missed out on a really good deal on ebay.

    I never understood what that means 640x480. It is a 10.4 screen and that was all i was looking for. 10in is what i really want. Also how can i compress my pictures i try to post some pics but they are to big. I converted them from bmp to Jpg and it worked pretty good but they all ended up being 204 KB and i'm only allowed 200kb
