it IS on my list of things to get but so many more things need attention first ... and I will be doing day sailing in SF Bay at first ... and would like to be learning to plot and navigate ...
It's a little round one with a usb connection. With the software that comes with it it'll give you position only but if you run a program like Fugawi or the Capt. your laptop becomes a chartplotter. You can get them on ebay for about $$40
It's this one: BU-353 USB GPS Receiver SiRF Star III 4 Laptop Notebook
