    GPS question:

    I recently received an upgraded company laptop (IBM Think pad) without COM ports that has MP2K installed. I want to use the GPS function. It has only USB ports. Is anyone using a USB GPS with MP2K? If so what brand/model Works? Does a USB to Com adapter work with the serial GPS? If so what adapter/GPS is recommended?
    Thanks,

    The Holux GPS 200 - usb works with Mappoint but you could also use any Serial 2 USB converter.
    The important thing is the protocol, Mappoint supports NMEA protocol.
