    We want to use MapPoint on a Laptop computer in vehicles and tie it to a fixed mount GPS receiver so they will know their actual location. Any suggestions for appropriate receivers? Thanks.

    I'm not a GPS guy, but from a quick search of the <a
    href="news://msnews.microsoft.com/microsoft.public.mappoint">Microsoft
    MapPoint newsgroup</a>:



    "Any good Garmin will do the trick for you." - Vic Fraenckel



    "... For MapPoint and GPSes - the requirements are: connection via a
    serial interface, at NMEA levels (NMEA is also a hardware spec), support
    for the NMEA 2.0 protocol." - Gilles Kohl



    "The [Delorme] Earthmate outputs a proprietary "Rockwell binary
    protocol" instead of NMEA. [Walt: This is not good. Although Vic
    Fraenckel mentions http://www.byonics.com/tinytrak/ where you can get a
    converter for NMEA compatibility.]" - Gilles Kohl
