    Iguidance v2.1.3 w/ BU-353 Receiver Good Combo? Any Suggestion?

    I'm new to the gps fourm but i have been on the site for a quite some time. I plan on getting the iguidance v2.1.3 with a bu-353 reciever because i would like it to be on the outside of the car. Is that all i need to get my gps and navigation up and running? are these two item compatible? anyone have this reciever? any information would help thank you!

    They are both compatible. BUT, I don't recommend putting the reciever on the outside of the vehicle. Last time I had a waterproof reciever, it wasn't quite so. I have the same reciever on my dash with tints and it works great with iGuidance. BTW..nice setup.

    iGuidance works with GPS receiver that sends NMEA 0183 coordinates. BU-353 supports NMEA 0183. So yes, they'll work with each other.

    Copilot is nice, but overpriced. It's got a lot of features designed for fleet management that most of us hobbyists don't need. If you already have iGuidange, there's no need to get CoPilot unless you want to compare & contrast.

    This is the GPS forum, not the fabrication forum. If you want pics, it's better to PM the guy or see if he's got a post in the Show Off Your Project or Worklogs forums.
    Have you looked in the FAQ yet?
    How about the Wiki?

    iguidance is pretty much great.

    im having a problem with going into a parkinglot and having the whole system crash. but i have yet to figure out what that is caused by.

    as said, if you have iguidance, stick with it, its a very nifty piece of software, and im looking to update soon.

    One more question....Does the BU-353 support bluetooth? it said it support the sirfstarIII <<<dont know what that is but it something that deals with bluetooth. I have a bluetooth enable phone with internet will that make me able to get internet on my computer by just using the bluetooth on my phone to get it to my computer? [i know if a little off topic but the people in wireless communication fourm are very harsh]

    Edit: when a gps reciever said it supports bluetooth does taht mean its like a bluetooth dongle? which let your computer recieve the bluetooth signal?
