MTK2 usb GPS's? by Wolfgang S. Rupprecht[_10_]
It has been a while since I made the rounds looking at the state of the art GPS chips. At first glance, it looks like the MTK2 might be the most interesting chip out there in terms of sensitivity and the spare CPU time to track a large number of GPS satellites.

How do I install the update for my 2720 maps to my computer by Choco[_2_]
Hi, I have updated my 2720 via my laptop. Now I want to install the updated maps to my desktop. I have the file, but when I try to install it, it wants to update the 2720 which takes quite a long time. Is there anyway to just update MapSource data on my desktop? Thanks, Choco

Broadcast Almanac-Changes by HIPAR
Subsequent to decommissioning, PRN25 has been removed from the broadcast almanac. PRN24 has been introduced but it's set unusable. If PRN24 is returned to usability, the constellation will still consist of 30 usable satellites. PRN24 was launched on the 4th of July way back in 1991. As a trivial aside, On July 19, 1991 Brett Favre signed with Atlanta. Somehow the GPS operators keep things...

PC to car navigator integration by Alan Browne
On a variety of destinations this past fall, I found setting the optimum route on my TomTom (aka: the G-D piece of crap). Editing on its small screen was a pain. What I'd really like: 1.
