    Radio Shack has a 7805 chip - a 5v regulator. Very easy to use and will get that 12v down to 5v regulated. I'm with Starfox - don't use the serial power unless you have to.

    That's going to be a lot of waste and heat. Better off finding a 5 amp regulator. But that's why people using switching supplies - more efficient and run cooler.

    Packed my case into the trunk but never bolt it down. I figured I'd squeezed it in there with enough force to stop it from shifting. Sucks to be wrong.

    There's a constant flame war on software - it's a personal preference thing. I've got a Holux GM210 USB receiver, and it's been excellent. As far as hardware goes, I'd recommend it to anyone.

    Looks great! Thought about putting the LCD where the radio is? Might be less in the way of shifting.

    Everything looks clean and put together well. Gotta have GPS with the Xterra.

    I'll be the first to admit serial comms with the basic stamp are much, much easier though. The BX requires you to set up buffers and queues and is generally ackward in general compared to the stamp.

    Yes.

    Yes, the BASIC stamp can be used to communicate with a COM port besides the download port. I have a setup pretty close to what you have planned, and it works well.
