    Cheap GPS Receiver

    I was looking over Maplins web site when I came to this

    http://www.maplin.co.uk/products/mod...890&Products=9

    This very compact GPS receiver is supplied connector free, simply choose the cable required for your appication to custom build your own GPS navigation unit and save money. USB connection for PC/Notebook (A00BC) Serial connection for PC/Notebook (A01BC) Ipaq 38/3900 series & 54 (A02BC) HP PDA (A03BC

    USB Adaptor 19.99
    RS232 Adaptor 10.99
    Ipaq 38/39 Cable 16.99

    Is this to good to be true?

    When Maplin opens tomorrow Iíll give them a call to see if they have any in.

    Just to test it for £19 you canít really go wrong.

    I think it is too good to be true. Looking at the website you'll have to buy the GPS as well. At the moment there's no price against it.

    For the newbie

    So is there a concensus on the lowest cost GPS with good performance?

    Thanks,

    John

    Well, I bought the Deluo, and had it shipped to the UK. Got it in less than a week.
    The one I bought at the time didn't include the special offer software but the price was OK, and I have had it functioning perfectly with Mappoint and aGPS addon, and with GPSS (free basic UK software).

    Hello. I also am interested to the purchase of a receiver on deluo. I do not have idea of how much can cost the shipment in Italy. How much you have paid it?
    Thanks.

    If you Mail deluo, they will give you an idea of how much shipping is. It was only a few dollars through the USPS anyway.

    I think you can choose you country when you deal with the checkout, and it will tell you shipping there.

    Hello.
    Thanks for the timely answer. I have already written to the deluo, but they have still not answered. I will try to make as you say.
    Thanks many.
