    I think there is something in the insructions (don't have them to hand atm) about the receiver working up to 18,000 feet. I imagine that will be ample for most private flying.

    I assume that the higher you get harder it is to trianglate (3d fix) your position.

    Actually, its 18,000 metres...or 60,000 feet.

    haha wow! well I only have my private pilots lisence as of now (for now anyways!) so the planes I fly don't have pressurized cabins so I can't fly over 13000 ft for more than half an hour before I suffer from hypoxia (you eventually pass out because you don't have enough oxygen at that height, hahahaha, basically no sane person who wants to live would fly that high.. so it will work great!!!!!!). I'll only be using this for under 10,000 ft. Can't wait to post some pics once I get my gps mouse in the mail! I got a cross country flight on friday. I only hope the mouse makes it to my house by then, it would be really neat to document the flight and post some pics of it! Thanks again guys, I really appreciate your opinions!

    That's Blackbird territory then I reckon.

    As to logging your trip, if you haven't already found out iGuidance can record your GPS data, so you can simply play back your movements in real time.
    On to free stuff, try PocketGPSWorld. As the name suggests, it is heavily slanted at Windows CE/Mobile, but there is a freeware PC app halfway down the list.
