Hi, I have a laptop and a desire to use it as a moving map with a gps...What do i need? Can i get one of those small cables gps receivers and some software / maps on disc? Could i use a handgheld device (a geko) and plug it into the laptop and use the large screen?



Any help or comments most welcome.

OziExplorer would be a good start, especially if you're in Australia. You can download a lot of free topo maps in Australia and this could be links via serial to any handheld GPS.
