    you can't build industial grade micro electronics in your home garage. no buts and ifs.

    Exactly...

    Mind you I once planned to build a jet engine for a model plane at home...but then I was only 9 years old

    There was a 'Junkyard Wars' episode where they had to build and implement jet engines on a car. It was an awesome episode. If I remember corectly they used propane as the fuel even.

    The way I look at it, If you dont know how to build a GPS receiver there maybe you shouldnt try to build on. You'll probably end up frying all the component you bought and the computer you're trying to test it on. Don't be a cheap *** and save yourself the hassle and go buy one.

    Edit: I re-read your question and it seems like you're asking us if you (personally) can build a GPS receiver. How can we tell you what your abilities are? We dont know.
