    Damn...why you guys not just purchase the Rand McNally that is always appearing on e-bay? I picked mine up for $50 and it works with co-pilot 2003 like a champ.

    Matty,

    Serial or USB? I have the Serial version going with Co-Pilot 2002 but I want to free up a serial port.

    Copilot software only works with serial GPS receiver. The USB version of the copilot GPS receiver is a USB to serial converter. Some how it's a USB to HID then to serial. I think thats why a lot of people have problems with Windows seeing the GPS receiver as a serial mouse.

    The Deluo GPS comes with a "usb to serial bridge." It's a driver so the conversion is completley software driven. I wonder if this would aleviate some problems others are having with xp/serial gps's.
