use a serial one over USB.. then you can place the GPS reciever anywhere in the car.. and put the Z somewhere you can see the display.. also, it frees up the CF slot for like.. say.. 802.11b biggrin.gif

Wait. A "serial" one over USB? You mean using the serial port on the Z or the USB port?

There are several posts in these forums regarding CF GPS's. I believe they recognize as /dev/ttyS3.

If you are *just* using the GPS in the car, and not on foot for any length of time, the CF is a good choice since you just have to connect power to your Z from a cigarette lighter adapter.

I don't have any experience with CF GPS's, though. I have recently purchased a Garmin Etrex Legend since I will be using it standalone. It comes with a serial cable.

Just make sure you get one that allows for an optional external antenna, if you are concerned about reception.
