As a MSDN subscriber I now have Microsoft Mappoint 2009 with European mapping.

What I don't have is a GPS receiver to go with it.

I note that Microsoft include a Pharos GPS receiver in the retail box but I cannot find any for sale as a separate unit.

Are they available or are there any other compatible units?

thanks

There are plenty of different receivers that will work with your software, question is do you want a cabled receiver, Bluetooth or Compact Flash type - what is the hardware you are running the software on? - Mike

Thanks Mike

Been away for a while.

I suppose anything that will easily connect to a Laptop would be favourite, USB ?.

Bluetooth works as well as USB, the choice in the end is yours but USB once installed are simple and easy to use.

I'm not fussed which I get but do you have any recommendations, anything on AmazonUK that would work straight out of the box at a reasonable price?
