The one that costs the least and does what you want it too.
If someone knows and could shed some light on the subject of which works/is better - a USB or Serial GPS Antenna. I'm trying to figure which one to buy for my new system and noted that some were having problems with the USB type.
Thanks for your input.
i went with usb, just becuase i have more usb ports than serial.
Just got mine, havent tested it much, but i went for the deluo
my usb delorme GPS had a serial driver that i've gotten to work with everything except netstumbler, but I hear some people have had problems with the serial driver.
USB will always be more convenient if you ask me, unless it's no trouble at all to use a serial gps. For me it would have meant buying a USB-serial converter
car computer rev 5: 8" lilliput and usual suspects
Serial on a lot of the older De-Lorme units meant wireing power through a cigarette lighter adapter, while usb provides it's own power... (Less Messy)
USB!! Just make sure you do the reaseach first!! Some apps have problems using USB GPS devices and scew up when trying to emulate a serial port. Go for a USB solution for the future but make sure it has been tested with the app you are wishing to use!
Best of luck!
Thanks for all of the info guys.
usb *might* give problems with hibernation
ok my first gps mouce was a serial , now i have a usb, works fine but got some troubles returning from hibernation, wich i didn't had with the serial if i remeber correct.
so usb is quick and clean , serial little more work (power) but more stable.
the sun always shine
Even though serial is a little old school and not as convienient it seems to be less problematic if you are trying to use hibernation. My experience with USB and hibernation is the two just don't like each other. Who knows, maybe Microsoft will get off their butts and fix this problem (yeah right...) but if you plan to use hibernation keep this in mind.
If you plan to use standby which to my knowledge few people do then you "might" be okay with a USB. I think standby is a little more friendly in that regards.
