Deluo receiver $89... Is this plug and play with MS Streets?
For anyone who doesn't track prices like I do, there's $10 off the Deluo receiver right now so it's $89 (until 10-6-2002).
I've been tracking GPS receiver prices and that was the lowest I found from what looked like a reputable vendor.
1) I know it works with MS Street, but has anyone else out there used MS Streets with this receiver? Is it just plug and play? Is there any nontrivial setup to it?
2) Does anyone have any experience using this receiver with a software package that talks? I actually got in touch with people who do the software for Destinator, which talks, and they said (contrary to their web advertising) that they DO have a version that works with a receiver other than the one they try to make you buy with it. If you have any experience with that, please share.
Here's what I got from Destinator...
