    Gps reciever - UK

    Hey,

    Can someone show to me towards a cheapish reciever (30-50) - I looked previously but they all seemed pretty expensive. Only requirement is that it is usb.

    Thanks

    Avoid the BU-303. Search for a used earthmate, or a ralkiline (sp).

    I recently posted this thread regarding what looks like a promising device and apparently contains a Rikaline GPS-6020 module.

    As you can see, the response from the board was hardly overwhelming! ... so i've ordered one anyway and it should be here in a day or two. I'll let you know how it performs when it arrives.

    PM me if you want the link to the seller. (6 days, 12 of 25 units remaining at time of writing).

    Well it has arrived! Ordered on saturday, arrived on Monday. Hows that for service.


    Anyway, I digress, we`ll let the figures speak for themselves!





    Just been for a 15 mile test drive logging as I went and it hasn't missed a beat.



    I think you could safely say that overall I am happy with it!

    Try www.linitx.com they sell a variety. BU303 is OK but as they said not without problems. if you can get the best you can afford.
