I have a copy of Micro$oft Streets and Trips 2006 on my desktop PC which I use to get an indication of mileage on my roadtrips. I've always been intruiged by the GPS feature that it offers but have never used it.
Having just ordered a new laptop, I am thinking perhaps I should take it with me on my next trip and make use of the satnav facility. Has anyone used this themselves and is it accurate and reliable?
Also, not having the GPS device to plug into the USB port, I'll have to acquire one of those. Can anyone suggest a reasonable quality device at a reasonable price? I've seen a few on eBay but they're not cheap and, unless I can find something cheaper, I think I'll probably look to buy the 'Streets and Trips 2007 with GPS receiver' pack when I arrive in the US, as it's similarly priced to a stand-alone receiver.
