Have fun reading the info below.
Getting Started with GPS
im looking through some write ups but can anyone give me a basic write up of what i need to get the gps workin in my carputer.
I have iguidance v3. the software only.

thanks for the help im clueless about gps stuff.
edit: do i need anything else besides.

linking me to long thread took u probably more time then to just give me a simple yes or no answer.
so basicaly you helped nothin..
i've read it already and to my KNOWLEDGE i only need the 2 things i linked above.
yea gps + software.. IG3 is the best software imo.. and as for gps? I went with the cheap bu-303 i think its the name.. under 50$.. works prefect if its not behind anything like windows tint or something matalic.
Here's what you need,
1. iGuidance (you seem to already have) - or other software
2. GPS receiver
Most GPS receiver (modern ones) are about the same. As long as they're NMEA compliant, you're money. Most ppl use the Delorme, the Global Sat (bu-***), or the one you suggested above.
That's about it. The Delorme GPS receiver comes with a port splitter. Other than that you may want another 3rd part splitter. I'm drunk, that's all the help I have.....lates

whichever gps mouse you get, make sure it has the SiRF Star III chipset. they are more sensitive and more accurate. i had mine tucked in the rear deck lid under metal, wood, carpeting, then the rear window and it still worked great.
ps i had the globalsat bu-353
And you can't figure out the answer to your thread from reading the numerous informational pieces that have been written by forum members?Originally Posted by xcite
If that's the case, you're going to have a long hard road in front of you. This hobby requires participants to be able to think on their own and do somne research.
I predict we'll see all your carPC hardware for sale in the classified forum before too long...
