    I am not a GPS expert, correct me if I am wrong. I remember I've read one of thread from this forum. The fastest the update time (2-3 times per second), the better the receiver is. This particular model, the update time is less than 2 second?

    I've read that post. I know exactly what you are talking about

    I would rather spend the time on the integration than fabrication.

    Not sure on where you got the spec. from and which particular model you meant. Garmin GPS-25LV has 1 second update rate.

    So far it is working great with an external antenna, much better signal reception than my previous Deluo gps mouse.

    Note - not affiliated in any way with the above product, just a happy customer.
    I second this. In fact I did a writeup on how to connect it.
    AXIOM Sandpiper GPS reciever

    The connector I ended up using was http://www.compusa.com/products/prod...956&pfp=SEARCH

    I modified the circuit board to connect to the panel on the Axiom. For the connection to COM2 on the motherboard I used an IDS10 socket that I picked up from Fry's Electronics http://shop4.outpost.com/product/1910717 and some ribbon cable.
