  • Hi Motorpap1,

    Members of Laptop GPS World use various GPS units with Streets & Trips. Many use the Microsoft USB GPS stick included with the software/hardware version. Others use 3rd party GPS units. GlobalSat USB GPS BU-353 has been very popular, but there are others equally as good.

  • The BU-353 seems to do very well with a poor signal - eg. I've been able to use it for live development whilst indoors. I doubt it will work in all buildings, but it gives you an idea of its abilities.


    The USB stick that MS ship will work of course, but I think a lot of people find it works better on its own cable and not plugged straight into your laptop. The laptop appears to interfere with it.
