    Practically any of the GPS mice will work, just make sure it supports NMEA as a minimum, this'll give you everything you need - USB or serial are both fine. You may find that Windows XP picks up a USB GPS mouse as an actual 'mouse', causing the cursor to go nuts, this is very easy to get around but don't worry about it unless it actualy happens to you!
