Finally, the GPS manufacturers realize a common power supply is the right approach by sarah bennett
As a followup to the two-year old article A portable GPS should use standard mini-USB power (but which ones do)? http://groups.google.com/group/sci.geo.satellite-nav/browse_thread/thread/85b2553d5c67a368/fdc54a0185621cc9#fdc54a0185621cc9 Note the Europeans finally, two years later, have made the small USB connector the standard for power supplies starting next year! Micro-USB to be universal...

eLORAN as GPS backup by HIPAR
President Obama has recently targeted LORAN for shutdown as an outdated radionavigation system that nobody uses anymore but legislation is being introduced to complete the enhancement of LORAN. 'The legislation implicitly confirms the findings of an Independent Assessment Team (IAT) on eLoran, funded by the office of the under secretary of transportation policy and chaired by Brad Parkinson,...

Here is another take on Friday's meeting. http://blogs.agi.com/navigationAccuracy/ "Question: How is the fix for this problem modeled? Is it a constant bias or something else? Answer: (Madden) The fix effectively moved the antenna phase center for the satellite to 150 meters behind the satellite.

Rocanda Grid Map by Julian
Does anyone have a copy of the Rocanda Grid Map they'd like to share? I would order it myself, but I don't have a credit card, and there is no nearby retail outlet where I can purchase it in person. Your post of the map would be most appreciated. Thanks

Does navigation software have a future at Microsoft? by Marvin Hlavac
"We've seen it in AutoRoute, we've seen it in Encarta, and now we can see it in Microsoft Money. Our friends at Microsoft are pruning out consumer-oriented software applications that are not meeting corporate objectives. Is Streets and Trips the next dog to be shot?

Mexico map coverage in Microsoft Streets and Trips 2008 vs. 2009 by Marvin Hlavac
"I have used Streets & Trips 2009 in Mexico a lot. I've used it in the following states: Tamaulipas, Veracruz, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Sonora, Sinaloa, and Durango. Generally I'd say it has very good coverage from major roads down to small pueblos. Perhaps the biggest limitation is when you try to map along the autopistas, especially the newer ones. For instance, you can't map a trip from...

You will pry my cold dead fingers from Streets and Trips by Marvin Hlavac
One piece of consumer software that has survived, so far, is Microsoft's Streets & Trips mapping and navigation program. But like some of the Microsoft products already eliminated, Streets & Trips faces increasing competition from online alternatives and offerings from specialized technology companies. Streets & Trips "would be a candidate (for cutting) at some point, as well, given all the...

GPS position and time loggers / photography by Alan Browne
I'd like suggestions from experienced users on GPS data loggers for photography. Oddly my Sony a900 does not come with a GPS data input to tag images with position and time. I would have though Sony would have added this as a natural with their own GPS logger. (Sort of proves the ex-Minolta guys are keeping their distance from the gadget boys at Sony). IAC, I would like a logger that:

Nokia N95 8GB link up to Microsoft MapPoint 2009 by Lu
Hello there, Is this possible (as the title says) as a GPS receiver? I don't know much about GPS' NMEA but apparently on the setup page in MapPoint requires a 2.0 of NMEA. How do I check if this is possible? Thanks in advance, Lu Zheng

Scratch-Plot by KBH is a fast-reach, ease-of-use plotting program with a simple file structure. And so Scratch-Plot is suitable for minor design projects...on the fly, off the cuff or on site. Of course use of Scratch-Plot is like making an electronic design-on-a-napkin... The program plots by North and East coordinates but can also plot by azimuth and distance. The azimuth and distance plot...

New Lowrance Endura Handhelds - Previewed on GpsPasSion by Keith
"I was invited to take part in the European press launch of the new Lowrance Endura handhelds on June 4th in Windermere, UK, in the Lake District.
