GPS on old Laptop: Dell Latitude LX
I have just found a really old Dell Laptop. From what I can tell, it has a 486, probably 64MB of Ram, and a 1.03 gig hard drive, floppy drive. No USB connection!
When I boot up, it can't find a boot sector, so I am assuming that there is OS installed on the hard disk.
This is what I would like to do with this laptop:
First and formost; I would like to be able to use it as a GPS device for my car. I have looked at the GPS-18(Garmin), and some others. What do you recommend?
Secondly; What distro can I run on this system? Am I going to have to upgrade any hardware to get a distro running?
Any suggestions would help greatly. I have checked out the GPSDrive(gpsdrive.cc) and it looks like a great program.
Thanks for your help!
