    i would say try wall mart or something like that, just the cheapest one they have, either with a computer link cable, or a port on it that you can build your own cable for.

    ive looked at the ones at canadian tire, and to get a computer link for one, would come to the same price as buying a usb one from the internet, because you have to pay shipping as well. but not at walkin store like canadian tire or wallmart.

    but they're both old (4 or 8 channel) and you have to build interface hardware to go between rs232 and the gps module. if you dont mind either, than its a good deal, otherwise, spending 70 or 80 will get you a 12 channel usb/serial gps (I think the deluo's were going for 80).
