    Computing performance and GPS

    What would you guys recommend as a minimum spec for using GPS. I am particularly interested in folk who have used "slow" PCs with GPS.

    Thanks!

    I use Infomap Navigator on a Dell laptop running a PII 400, 128mb RAM and XP Pro. When I'm selling at shows I can demonstrate that it is perfectly usable on older kit.

    been running various versions of Delorme Street Atlas since back in the day when my laptop didnt have a cd drive, and you only had room to load a certain number of states on it (486 baby, yeah! those were the days!)

    might take a lil longer to get up and running, but once it was running, everything was gravy


    Garry, I gotta take a minute to say that has got to be one of the best avatar's i've seen in a long time... maybe its just me, but that really cracks me up. nice work
