    im in the market for a GPS. im thinking about the DeLorme LT 20. anyone have any experience with it/whats a better cheap model? i dont want anything fancy, just something that will work with linux. for example, i dont really even want a screen on the unit. war driving sounds like fun and i figured i might as well give it a go, as well as use the gps for trips and what not.

    Avoid Garmin as many of their new units do not support NMEA.

    Really? I wonder why they've done that. Even my Geko 201 (they don't get much cheaper than that) has NMEA support. (Unless the dropped it in the latest firmware).

    Garmin created a proprietary format. Many (not sure if *alll) of their newer devices use it instead of NMEA. Why? Good question. My answer is to avoid Garmin completely.

    Because they've adopted the Sony mentality of Standards. With what they're doing you're forced to buy accessories from them. Same as Sony does.
    A third party security audit is the IT equivalent of a colonoscopy. It's long, intrusive, very uncomfortable, and when it's done, you'll have seen things you really didn't want to see, and you'll never forget that you've had one.

    Default gps

    I did some research on this already and found this to be something that matches my needs:

    I have neither bought one, nor tested one, but others here might comment on the effectiveness of this device.

    As for price, well it seems pretty reasonable to me.

    Sounds like the Apple / AT&T mentality as well
