I'm running the cheepest Garmin "eTrax" gps with MS Streets & Trips..
got it from gpscity.com for $110 plus 12vdc power cord / com cord for
$30. It does feed time, elevation, location, speed .. and the list goes
on.. into com port.. you only have to deciper the data .. I've seen it
at Walmart for $120, no cord.. Sam's Club has MS S&T 2002 for $32 - $20
rebate from MS! just FYI
Keeps me from getting lost on the road..

As a side note: Does anyone know of a cheap GPS time sync gadget? I see
hiking GPS systems for less than $200. But it looks like GPS boxes for
time sync still cost $1000 and more... doesn't make sense to me. It
be cheaper to make something that does time sync only (my server usually
doesn't hike very far). Or a radio solution. Even though I would prefer
GPS as the Colorado time sync signal is weak in my area.
I thought about sacrificing my hiking GPS. It has a serial port. But I
would have to wire up some sort of power supply for it.
