It is too bad someone does not produce a GPS puck for this application, it could sit near the VHF and be a dedicated GPS just for this purpose.
thanks again, Bob
I have no idea about the tech stuff like the Dog does, but what I do know is that I use a puck style USB/GPS with software on a laptop. The USB/GPS is powered by the laptop computer. I'm not sure how you would power up the GPS in the scenerio you describe. Would you somehow power it via the VHF? or perhaps run a seperate power supply? Not sure how that would work. Some others might have better explanations for you.
