    Rand McNallyStreetFinder and GPS

    Call me stupid (Please no comments), but check out this link:

    http://www.staples.com/Catalog/Brows...e=1&SKU=394606

    There are $20 off $50+ purchases at staples right now.

    I've checked here, google and even Rand's site and can't find the specifics on the GPS that's included.

    Does anyone here know if it's USB, Serial, Battery powered, other power requirements? Also, is it NMEA 2 compliant.

    Thanks...

    -Mario

    If it's the same one that's pictured. It's Serial and PS/2. The PS/2 port is only for the power so you could use a USB to PS/2 adaptor for the power or rig a power setup from your PSU. I have this very one and it also works with the Street atlas software.

    I have the same one too, I'm using Co-pilot with it, and it works great. I bought mine on ebay for $65 w/o software.
