Want to build GPS system. I've got alot of questions!
I want to put a PC based GPS system in my car. The wiring, install, etc...is all stuff I'm comfortable with. What I don't know is anything about GPS hardware.
The only thing I've got now is an older notebook computer. It's a Win98 based system (that could run Win2000 if it's needed for software).
What I don't know is if it's Version 1.0 USB ports will be sufficient to run a GPS antenna.
Will a GPS antenna run on a version 1 USB port? Or do you need 2.0 USB's?
That being said, are there any website or writeups on this site to help me design this sort of thing?
When I'm done it's going to be a fully integrated touch screen PC based GPS system dash mounted in a 1997 BMW M3. It will look like it came out of the factory this way by the time I'm done. I haven't worked up a plan for how to do that yet, but I won't let it be finished until it's both completely functional and stock looking. Anyone know of good resources to help in this matter?
