Is there some repository (reasonably up to date) that lists currently
available GPS widgets that spit out NMEA sentences, etc. and describes the
amount of hacking/surgery/modification that would be required?
I've recently been asked by several folks for something that is "close" to
turnkey, as far as the GPS, but also cheap (i.e. they don't want the latest
whiz-bang Garmin or Thales moving map unit that talks to you as you drive..
they're thinking hockeypuck with wires that sits on dashboard, etc.)
There's a wealth of information in the list archives, but it's exceedingly
tedious to find it, and it's not always clear whether someone is describing
something that they picked up at a hamfest 3 years ago that they're just
now wiring up, or whether they ordered it mail-order yesterday.
If someone has a web page that is maintained, this would be a real asset to
the aprs community (and to folks who want to join the community)
