[aprssig] GPS Recommendations Needed

Hello,

   I've got a friend KC7GOL that wants to get a GPS for use with APRS. He
would also like to be able to have a screen so that he can read the lat,
long, and altitude. In addition he would like to be able to use the same GPS
for trips with maps loaded in it. He would like to spend less than $200.00
for the GPS. Is there a GPS that would meet these requirements? In stead of
using the GPS for maps I think that he should just use his laptop with one
of the APRS programs loaded. Then connect his GPS, Radio, TNC, and laptop
all together and he would have everything that he wants. Then the
requirements for the GPS would be: NEMA output, and a screen to read the
lat, long, and altitude. This would reduce the price of the GPS
considerably. Now any recommendations on which GPS he should look at that
might even make it in under his $200.00 price range?

 

TNX & 73,

Dave N0EOP
