    GPS receivers

    Hi everyone!
    I have a question about GPS receivers. I have MS MapPoint 2004 and I will probably be buying AGPS as well to complement it. The dilema that I have is that there are a bunch of different GPS receivers on eBay. If you were to search "GPS laptop" on eBay, there are a wide assortment. Would anyone be able to help and point me in the right direction as to which unit I should purchase so that it works with MP2k4 and AGPS with no problem. Thanks! As far as connection type, I could use USB, Serial (I have a USB to serial converter), or Bluetooth (I have a BT dongle). Thanks for your help!

    Do you know if it works with AGPS fine? In terms of the protocol sentences (I think that's what they are called) such sas GGA, RMC, GSA, GSV, etc. I don't know much about GPS receivers so forgive my ignorance. I checked out the link but it doesn't mention what protocol sentences it supports. Thanks for your help!
