Since last post on this, we acquired a little GPS
Receiver via Ebay. The little thing is about the size of two matchboxes, and hooks to the USB port through a 5 foot cord. It arrived from Hong Kong
, cost $90 Canadian, and works well with Offshore
Navigator, providing all the info on the laptop
that a handheld would on its screen
The little fellow comes in a box marked only GPS
Receiver, with not much info. It says BU-303 USB 1.1, provides a list of features, but no info on the manufacturer.
It works just fine in the living room. Hopefully it will serve as an inexpensive spare on the boat.
