zl2tze at yahoo.com.au
Wed Apr 2 03:05:34 CDT 2008
Have am using a Toshiba Laptop Satellite 2140CDS, AGW engine,, UI-View
32, and a DRSI TNC2 as my mobile tracker
I have 2 New GPS units a GPSmart 12 channel and new today a Globalsat
BU-353 SIRF powerd both of them
Both these GPs give me an error of 55 mtrs East and 30 North in Google when
checking with www.aprs.if and www.findu.com
I did a track tonight (02/04/08 NZT) zl2tze-15 with the new BU-353 it
has me not packed at my correct address.
On Saturday ( 29/03/08) I travelled to Nelson using the GPSmart GPS this
also has the same error.
Is this a GPS , UI-View , an error in the Google maps or is it that these
cheaper GPS units are not the great ???
My correct address is zl2tze-4 on the Maps Google
Any help on this will be appreciated
