I am interested in getting an older (serial interface would be ideal, but USB 1.0 would be fine too) GPS receiver for an old laptop that I have to assist in travel and exploration.
I've done some research on hardware and software, and found some great looking software sites:
But I'm still very green on the heardware end...
I'm seeing some very inexpensive devices on Ebay, some in the 30 dollar range, which is just about ideal for me. The only problem is, I'm not sure what would be best for my needs, and what might simply not work with Linux....
Anyone know of a good primer on the web to teach the ins and outs of GPS devices, and which will work perfectly with Linux (and Ideally OpenBSD 3.5 as well!)?
Also, any folks out there that have owned and used specific hardware makes that they'd suggest as being perfect for Linux?
Thanks very much! I hope this can work since it would be a relatively cheap and interesting project!
