    HELP! Which GPS Receiver should I buy??

    I am looking to buy my first GPS receiver. For now will use with my laprop (USB) and possibly my Ipaq via Bluetooth. I plan on building a carputer which I hope to use the receiver on that instead once all done.

    I saw some new models on Ebay with SiRF Star Chipset, but its much more expensive and only bluetooth I think.

    Anyway whats a good receiver that I can use for both USB and Bluetooth and that has good reception ?

    Any opinions are greatly appreciated

    I've been very happy with the Pharos repackaged by Microsoft. Purchased MS Streets and Trips with the gps. Since then, I've purchased the bluetooth adaptor and the palmtop adapter.

    MS Streets is Map software and as far as I'm concerned, not gps software. You get a line on a map (good maps), a trip tick and you see where you are. You don't get directions as you drive. The pocket streets and trips sucks. It's a cookie cutter. You have very limited map size that you can download. So you end up piecing a bunch of maps together.

    I've used the gps on iGuidance, destinator, and a few others.

    Im happy with my Rand McNally serial, I get 9 out of 9 satellites locked in my rear windshield with the defrost wires.

    I was pretty amazed by it. Not that I wouldnt get another if my budget allowed.
    2000 Sunfire build 100%, or is it ever really 100%?
